For Cupcakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup hot water

For Frosting

  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • To make the cupcake batter, add all ingredients to the bowl of your mixer and mix until you get a thin batter. Pour batter into cupcake liners. I used a medium size ice cream scoop, I found it was the perfect amount of batter I need for each cupcake.
  • Bake cupcakes for about 12 minutes, but start checking in on them after about 8 minutes and do the toothpick test until it comes out clean.
  • Let the cupcakes cool completely.
  • To make the nutella cream cheese frosting, simply mix the nutella and cream cheese together in a mixing bowl, pour in a piping bag, or simply a ziploc bag and seal it. Place the bag in the fridge for about an hour so that it hardens a bit.
  • Pipe the Nutella cream cheese frosting over each cupcake and top with sprinkles if preferred.
