I had a few issues putting this recipe together. The end result gets 4 stars, but the preparation gets a 2. First, when the little cakes bake, they pretty much fill the entire muffin opening. And if you don't push them back down immediately after they come out of the oven, they get hardened like that very quickly. I followed the instructions of keeping the filling warm to fill the chocolate molds, and if you don't, it begins to separate and the coconut falls to the bottom. At this point in the recipe, it should tell you to chill the cups before adding the chocolate topping. I added the chocolate on top of the warm filling and it just ran all over the pan, making a huge mess. After doing 3 cups, I stopped, put the pan in the fridge and chilled for about 30 minutes. Then I came back to a slightly thickened chocolate glaze and added it onto the chilled coconut filling. This worked much better. In the end, the chocolate cups were kind of hard and crumbly, and the filling is extremely sweet. But after my changes, they did turn out very pretty with some sliced almonds on top. Too many steps, too much work, and not a great finished product.
