I actually stumbled across this recipe my accident! I was trying to make an icing for my Moist Coconut Maple Cupcakes. The frosting I used contained coconut butter, coconut sugar and maple syrup.

I obviously tried it out immediately. I would have taken some photographs of my original batch to share with you but owing to unforeseen circumstances (the whole batch disappeared practically overnight) I was unable to get the shots. So obviously I HAD to make more just so I could take some photographs just for you!
