Hey guys it's Ro! For those of you who don't know, it is girl scout cookie season! One of the most wonderful times of the year, so i wanted to make some themed treats! based on some of their classic flavors, these are three of the flavors that i love! They did come out with a bunch of new flavors this year so i'm excited to try those! But! I wanted to make something new! So today we are going to be making cupcakes that are themed for the girl scout Samoa cookies! Thin Mint cookies! Peanut Butter Tagalong cookies! Let me know in the comments down below what your favorite girl scout cookie flavor is! Mine are the Samoas! I love em' because i love coconut, i love caramel, i love chocolate, i love biscuts, and this is everything all together! Side note! Fun Fact! Girl Scouts and Girl Scout cookies a special place in my heart because my sister was a girl scout, and my mom was a girl scout troop leader! My sister even saved her vest! These are all the patches that she earned! And then on the front, these are all of the badges that she earned! I wasn't a girl scout but i did like to sell cookies and eat em'! All Right! Lets get started! We're gonna start with Samoas! Yeah! To make these Samoa cupcakes, the things you will need will be: (Ingredients listed above) Then, for the caramel frosting you will need! (Ingredients listed above!) And some Girl Scout Samoas cookies! My favorite! the first step is mixing our dry ingredients together in a medium mixing size bowl Add in your flour, cake four, baking powder, and salt! Then whisk together until its well combined! Next, cream together your butter and sugar in a large bowl! Using an electric mixer, mix together until it's light and fluffy! Next add your egg and vanilla extract to your butter mixture Mix it up and scrape down the sides! All of our mixtures are ready and now it is time to combine everything! We are going to alternate adding our dry and coconut milk our large mixing bowl with our butter mixture Starting and ending with our dry ingredients! Its gonna be three parts dry to two parts coconut milk! Last step to making the batter is gently folding in our coconut flakes! If you've never folded something before just try to go under the mixture, over, and turn! our coconut cupcake batter is ready to scoop into the trays! In front of me i've lined a cupcake tray with a bunch of these purple silicone cupcake liners! I like these because they are reusable, and they are a bright color! they look just like the box color! Look it! Fill each cupcake cavity about 2/3 full i'm using an ice cream scoop, just to make it a little bit easier This recipe makes 12 cupcakes Our coconut cupcakes are ready to bake! Heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 14-16 minutes! While our cupcakes are baking, we will make caramel frosting! In a large mixing bowl beat your butter until smooth, then add the caramel! Ooooh Yum! And mix until it's well combined! then mix in your powdered sugar I like to add half at a time Now add : Vanilla extract and salt! Mix together till well combined! Lastly, beat in the cream until our frosting is smooth and fluffy! I have scooped the frosting into a piping bag with a number 829 tip! Our cupcakes have baked, i gave them plenty of time to cool, you don't want to frost em' while they are still hot cause it will melt your frosting and now for my favorite part, we're gonna frost and decorate! Im just gonna give it a double swirl One swirl around, and then a second! Boop! To make our cupcakes look like the Samoa cookies, drizzle a little of melted chocolate over the top I've got melted chocolate in a piping bag with a number 2 tip for a little bit more control! Final decoration step: cut your Samoa cookies in half and place em' on top of your cupcake! This one's for me Mmm! I would work as a taste tester a Girl Scout
