Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Prepare cake batter as directed on package; stir in 2/3 cup coconut. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pans 10 min.; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, beat pudding mix and coconut milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.) Spoon frosting into medium bowl. Add COOL WHIP; whisk until blended. Refrigerate until ready to assemble cupcakes.
Remove cupcakes from liners; cut cupcakes horizontally in half. Place cupcake bottoms on tray. Top each with 1 Tbsp. pudding and 1 tsp. of the remaining flaked coconut; cover with cupcake top. Spread cupcakes with frosting. Garnish with remaining flaked coconut, raspberries and mint.
