If you have been alive the last month and a half then you know it’s Girl Scout cookie time! My daughter is a Brownie this year and her first cookie booth was last week. She was so excited! I usually buy way to many cookies but they freeze well, right. At least, I tell myself I will freeze them, but I usually just put them in the cabinet and we eat them in about a month.
One of family’s favorite cookies are the Samoa’s! They are chocolate caramel coconut bite of heaven in a cookie. Luckily, not too many cookies come in one box because we will eat the whole box in one sitting. So what did I do? I created a whole cupcake with the flavors of this two bite wonder! Oh it is delicious! The kids were telling everyone about the new cupcake mommy made…seriously, I think my daughter told her teacher at school about it and to watch for the recipe. What a sweetie!
The frosting to this cupcake is to-die-for. I joked that I would put it in the bath tub and bathe in it….yes it was that good. Hmmmm….maybe I shouldn’t be telling you that. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
This is not my first attempt at recreating a Girl Scout cookie into a cupcake. Have you tried my Thin Mint Cupcake? It is super easy. The Samoa Cupcake is a bit more involved, but totally worth it!!!! I suppose you could use a boxed cake mix, but why would you want to do that…cake from scratch is so easy and tastes so much better!
