Girl Scout Cookie Samoas Bundt Cake


Our annual company picnic (Spring Fling) was yesterday.  Among the fun we have a bake off.  I won first place with this one.  I found this recipe on Pinterest.  

GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SAMOAS BUNDT CAKE

CAKE:

1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter, softened
2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour bundt pan or using baking spray.
Melt chocolate chips until smooth when stirred.  Set aside.  Beat butter and brown sugar with mixer until blended well (about 5 minutes).  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Beat in melted chocolate until just blended.  Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture to batter, alternating with sour cream on low speed until just blended.  Slowly with mixer on low add hot water.  Stir in vanilla.  Pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let cool for 10 minutes in pan, then remove cake from pan onto plate to cool completely.

FROSTING:

1/2 stick butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat butter until creamy.  Gradually beat in powdered sugar.  Beat in enough cream or milk to get to spreading consistency.  Spread on cooled cake.

TOPPING:

1-1/2 cups toasted coconut
Caramel sauce
Hot fudge sauce

Sprinkle toasted coconut all over cake.  Drizzle caramel sauce and hot fudge sauce.
