It’s Girl Scout cookie season!
A.k.a. so many reasons to indulge in Girl Scout cookies and trash up other baked goods to mimic them!
Honestly, this recipe was born out of a necessity to use up some of my Caramel & Coconut Coffee Creamer. I bought it and had high expectations that were not met at all. Sad :(. BUT-when life gives you creamer, put it into cupcakes?
I searched high and low for recipes using creamer. They’re out there, but man it takes the right recipe, the right kind of creamer, a certain amount, etc. to decide to go for it. So, I found a Thin Mints cupcake recipe (cited at bottom of page), and decide to go for it while transforming it into a Caramel Delite/Samoa version. (I grew up calling them “Caramel Delites” and somehow “Samoa” has sneaked into my cookie vocabulary…)
And I knew I had to include caramel frosting, but I had to tweak it a little. So I mixed in some cream cheese and added coconut on top!
Frosting adapted from this recipe.
