Does anyone out there in blogland like the Samoa girl scout cookies? Well I do. I made these cupcakes with those cookies in mind. However, when I first made them, I used a brownie mix, because I had one on hand, and I stirred caramel into it, and let me tell you, they were like bricks. Yuck. So, the pictures are from that batch, but the directions are for ones that are actually good, and work beautifully.
German Chocolate Samoa Cupcakes
- 1 box german chocolate cake mix prepared according to directions.
- 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes.
- 3/4 cup caramel sauce your favorite variety.
Chocolate buttercream frosting
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/3 cup melted chocolate
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup whipping cream

- Mix caramel sauce and coconut flakes together.
- When cupcakes come out of oven, immediately put a scoop of caramel coconut in center. It will melt it a little and make a nice gooey center.
