Girl Scout Samoa cupcakes might put your local troop out of business

Girl Scout cookies are, in and of themselves, perfect. But everything can be improved. Like when you put them in booze. Or create a hybridized cupcake version.

These Samoa cupcakes you see before you are the handiwork of Redditor nutgrrl, who was inspired by this equally amazing Samoa bundt cake recipe. We should warn you up front that this is a complicated, multi-step process that requires baking powder and baking soda. But when the end result is Girl Scout cookie cupcakes, even heating condensed milk in a Crock-Pot is totally worth it.
