Samoa Cupcakes

141

y order is placed (Samoas and Thin Mints) so now I just have to sit back and WAIT (that is the hard part!). I was thinking about Samoa cookies the other day and thought that it would be yummy to try a Samoa cupcake, so I started playing around with some of the ingredients and this is what I came up with. No offense, but they were delicious. I seriously ate them for breakfast. And lunch. :)
