You guys, we have an EPIC cupcake today! Like epic in the way of chocolate coconut cupcakes with caramel coconut frosting garnished with coconut flakes and chocolate drizzles. aka SAMOA cupcakes!! My favorite Girl Scout Cookies in a cupcake form.
When thinking of it, I debated whether to make a salted caramel cupcake base or a chocolate cupcake but clearly chocolate won since I thought the caramel/coconut flavors will standout with a chocolate cupcake. And they sure do! The chocolate cupcake is decadent and amazing especially with the coconut flavors in it. The frosting is a sweet caramel and coconut whipped buttercream.
To finish off the cupcakes, drizzle more chocolate (and caramel!) along with some toasted coconut. If you happen to have some leftover cookies, then chop up some and throw them in the cupcake before baking but I know that is asking too much because really, who has leftover Girl Scout cookies?
