Almond Joy cupcakes

If you like Almond Joys....then stop what you're doing and make these cupcakes. Seriously. They are delicious and taste just like the candy bar! Plus they're easy-even with the three different steps. (the cupcake is a doctored up cake mix...usually I scoff at those but I've made this one before and it's good!) I didn't have enough coconut topping for all of the cupcakes, 3 were naked. I even added another cup of coconut! hmm....I still don't think I piped on a ton, but oh well. Those naked cupcakes will still get eaten, no doubt!
