My kids love to look through my old clippings from magazines. I have thousands of recipes that are just slipped into sleeves that I have collected over the years. I don’t really look in it very often and was recently threatening to throw it away – my cookbook collection is out of hand, my cooking magazine collection is out of hand and after a year or so, I usually go through, cut out any recipes I think I’d like to try and toss them. The problem is, I rarely go back to make anything that I cut out.
So my daughter wanted to make something “scrumptious” as she quoted, and I made them look through “the pile” to find something. I told them if they found something, I wouldn’t throw the big mess away. Well, they did. They found a recipe for a Caramel Coconut Cake that we turned into Caramel Coconut Cupcakes. They are very good, but very messy. I’m just letting you know. Every time you eat one, sticky fingers are likely to ensue. 😉 I have definitely seen a recipe similar to this before and I even felt like I had eaten something similar to this before. They are messy but divine.
