German Chocolate Cupcakes - Celebrating Mads

In my family, we love to celebrate every day. Whether it is big or small, I like to make a big deal out of things. When I learned that Cool Whip came out with a new line of Frosting I KNEW I had to incorporate it in our next celebration.

On Wednesday we had our first Parent Teacher Conference of the year for Miss Mads. I was very anxious as some of the papers that have been sent home weren't that great. There have been a lot of corrections and some confusion with some of her letters.

Hubby and I spent nearly an hour and a half talking with her teacher and going over things.  In the classroom Mads is doing excellent! In fact, she received an 'Excellent' mark on every single in class things such as listening, doing what is told, helping others, etc.  YAY! We also learned that she is ahead in math and reading and is nearly a full year ahead on word recognition!  WooHoo!  Goooo Mads!

I had already planned on celebrating the first 9 weeks being over but now, I had even MORE to celebrate and the cupcakes I had planned on making were turned into something much more worthy.

German Chocolate Cupcakes
Makes 24

Ingredients:
For Cake:
1 Box German Chocolate Cake Mix
Egg, Water and Oil called for on box

For Topping:
Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting
Pecans for Garnish
Toasted Coconut for Garnish

Directions:
Mix and bake cupcakes according to package directions.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completly.
While Cupcakes are cooling, toast your coconut, I used about 1/2-1 C, and make your sauce {recipe below}
Once Cupcakes are cool, top with Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting.
Sprinkle with Pecans and then drizzle with German Chocolate Sauce.

German Chocolate Sauce
1 Egg
2/3 C Evaporated Milk
2/3 C Sugar
1/4 C Butter

In a medium saucepan, slightly beat egg.
Add all of the remaining ingredients over medium heat.
Continue to stir for 5-8 minutes or until mixture is thick.
Once thick, remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Once cool, drizzle over Cupcakes.

The true test though was if Mads would like them, after all we were celebrating her!

They passed the smell test!  If anything passes the smell test, it then and only then moves on to a taste test.

And the verdict?  She LOVED them!  WooHoo!!

Have you tried the new Cool Whip Frosting yet? It is a great topping for many desserts! We tried all three favors, Vanilla, Cream Cheese and Chocolate.  My favorite? The Chocolate, hands down! It was like eating an amazingly creamy chocolate mousse. The Cream Cheese was my least favorite.
