Through a friend of mine, (thanks Kamille,) I came across a wonderful blog full of recipes, descriptions and pictures of cupcakes. The blog is titled Cupcake Bake Shop by chockylit. While browsing this said blog, I found a recipe for a cupcake that I simply had to try. This recipe is for a cupcake mimicking the idea of the Girls Scout Samoas® cookie. (Ever tried that one? It's my favorite.)
The cupcake consists of a brown sugar buttery cake, a homemade luxurious caramel filling, a rich bittersweet chocolate ganache topped with delicious caramelized toasted coconut. This desert is divine! I will warn you, I would not eat it without a large glass of milk. It is rich. It is equally good paired with vanilla ice cream.
As far as changes that I might make to the recipe: I don't think I would bother making the caramel filling. I think I would prefer having a little more cake and I don't know that I notice it enough for the time and effort it takes to make it.
I will definitely be making these again. If you are interested in making these for yourself, here is a link to the recipe.
