Girl Scout Samoas Cookies Cupcakes Ingredients

Chocolate Cupcakes Ingredients

Caramel Buttercream Frosting Ingredients


How to make Caramel Buttercream Frosting

  • In a stand mixer bowl add the butter. Place the mixer bowl on the mixer stand and turn up to medium speed. Mix the butter until it is smooth..
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly pour in the confectioners sugar and mix until it is all incorporated.
  • Add the caramel sauce and the vanilla extract and turn the mixer speed up to medium.
  • Leave the mixer mixing for 5-10 minutes until the caramel frosting is light and fluffy.

How to Make Chocolate Cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.
  • Put paper cupcake liners in your cupcake pans or you can use silicone, which ever ones you prefer.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the hot brewed coffee and cocoa, until dissolved and set aside.
  • In the bowl for your stand mixer, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Then add the butter and sugars.
  • Beat on medium-high speed of your mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in three additions alternating with the coffee-cocoa mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  • Mix each addition just until incorporated, being careful not to over mix.
  • Divide the batter between the prepared liners, filling each about two-thirds of the way full.
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pans briefly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Place your caramel buttercream in a piping bag with a large straight piping tip.
  • Pipe a single layer of buttercream to swirl around the top of each cupcake.

How to Assemble cupcakes

  • Allow the cupcakes to cool completely. Once they are cool frost the cupcakes with your caramel buttercream frosting.
  • Frost the cupcakes using the cupcake swirl method and a large tip and frost each cupcake.
  • Take a handful of your toasted coconut over a bowl and press the edge of the cupcake into the coconut as you twirl the cupcake around so you end up with a ring of coconut in the shape of a circle around the top of your buttercream. Repeat this to each cupcake.
  • Place all the cupcakes on to a sheet pan and drizzle the top back-and-forth with that caramel sauce and then the chocolate syrup up so you end up with a little lines of caramel and chocolate.
  • These Samoas Cookies cupcakes are best served at room temperature.
