Coconut Cream Cupcakes

Since tomorrow is Easter, I decided to make some festive cupcakes. I saw this idea on Pinterest and adapted the recipe from

1 box white cake mix
Water, oil, & eggs called for on box
1/2 cup sweetened, condensed milk
2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut
1 tsp. coconut extract
1 container cream cheese frosting
Shredded coconut for topping
Mini Cadbury eggs (optional)

Preheat oven according to box cake mix instructions.
Mix cake mix with ingredients on the box and coconut extract.
Add sweetened, condensed milk and shredded coconut and fold in.
Line 24 cupcake wells with liners and fill each 2/3 full of mixture.
Bake according to package directions.
Once cool, frost with cream cheese frosting and dip in coconut.
*If you want to create the Easter egg nest cupcakes, toast your coconut on a cookie sheet, and press that on to the cream cheese frosting, then add Cadbury eggs.
