Combine Part One and Part Two in the mixing bowl. Spoon cupcake batter into cupcake pan liners until they are 1/2 to 2/3 full.

Coca Cola Frosting
• 1/4 cup powdered cocoa• 6 tablespoons coca cola or other cola• 1/2 cup butter• 3 and 3/4 cup powdered sugar (one 1 lb box)• 1 cup chopped pecans• 1 teaspoon vanilla
Coca Cola Frosting Directions
In a medium saucepan, mix together cocoa, cola, and butter. Heat over medium heat until melted then bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar, pecans and vanilla. Stir until blended well.
Let frosting cool until stiff enough to frost cupcakes. I've been know to eat the leftover frosting with a spoon!
This frosting can be used to fill cupcakes if you work quickly. You can fill a pastry bag with the warm frosting and fill your cupcakes. Extra yummy!
