CHOCOLATE COCONUT CAKES

Friday night and I'm home baking...what has my life come to?!  Well I have an excuse, tomorrow morning we're having an internal games day (crossfit competition for everyone who trains at my gym) so I'm having a quiet one.  I have to be up at 6am tomorrow!  And although baking chocolate coconut cakes the night before might not have been the best idea (I usually can't stop eating once I've taken a bite), at least I can share this amazing recipe with you, and that makes it well worth it!  This is my take on the wonderful recipe from Elana's Pantry.
