Sort-of Samoa Cupcakes



































I think everyone has a Girl Scout cookie that they're passionate about.  For me, it's Samoas- I love them so, so much.  I bought a box a few weeks back and it was gone in 24 hours.  I'm not even embarrassed to tell you that, because I love them so much.

Anyway, I found this recipe for samoa cupcakes and have been meaning to bake them for a while.  I finally made them today, and they're delicious.  I followed the cupcake recipe exactly, but I didn't have enough powdered sugar to make the frosting.  I improvised by making a quick caramel sauce and mixing it with some leftover chocolate frosting from the fridge. (What, you don't always have leftover frosting in your fridge?  Because you should.)  I used this recipe for the caramel, and mixed it in with good ole' Betty Crocker frosting.  Perfection.   Happy Wednesday!  xx ellen
