As if we all needed another excuse to buy every flavor of girl scout cookies. After seeing these girl scout cookie brownie cups, you’ll want to grab every single box you can find! These brownies are baked in a cupcake tin, stuffed with four different fillings, and topped with a girl scout cookie. I’m sharing four different flavors of the most popular girl scout cookies: tagalongs, samoas, trefoils, and thin mints.
The four girl scout cookie cup flavors
To make sure everyone has a chance to bake with their favorite girl scout cookie, I’ve created four brownie cup flavors. You can choose to bake just one, two, or all four as the recipes are easy to adjust!
Samoa Cups: Easily my favorite girl scout cookie. These brownies are stuffed with a simple caramel coconut filling, drizzled in chocolate, and topped with a gooey and rich samoa.
Trefoil Cups: This one comes in VERY close second to my favorite girl scout cookie (see how I’m ranking these in order?). These cups are stuffed with sprinkle-filled vanilla buttercream and topped with a buttery trefoil.
Tagalong Cups: This was my favorite flavor growing up, but lately I feel this cookie is lacking in that strong peanut butter flavor. Not to worry! These chocolate brownie cups are stuffed with peanut butter fudge and drizzled with more peanut butter.
Thin Mints: The classic that has everyone torn…you either love them or hate them. I could take it or leave it, but I sure do love mint brownies! These brownie cups are stuffed with mint cream and topped with a crispy thin mint cookie.
How to make brownie cups
Since we have four different fillings to make, I’m taking a short cut for the brownies. Because let’s be real, boxed brownies are the exception to the box-mix stigma. They’re just SO DANG GOOD. I even made a homemade brownie recipe dedicated to box mix brownies because I just needed a from-scratch recipe that could compete.
Case in point, don’t feel guilty about using a box mix here. You’ll thank me once all the fillings are made! To make brownie cups, prep a cupcake tin by coating each cup in nonstick spray.
Mix the brownies by following the instructions on the back of the box. I recommend using a family size to make 12 full brownie cups.
Pour the batter into each cup. One 18oz box should fill the tin perfectly, each cup filled about 2/3 full.
Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes. They’re ready when the centers have completely puffed up. You can also test them by giving them a gentle poke. If there’s some slight give to them, they’re ready.
Allow the brownies to rest at room temp for 30 minutes, then transfer to the fridge while you make the fillings. It’s very important that the brownies have completely cooled before carving out the centers.
Once chilled, use a spoon to scoop out the center of each brownie cup while they’re still in the pan. Don’t dig too deep as we don’t have to touch the bottom of the pan. Scoop a hole about 2/3 deep.
Now they’re ready to fill!
Girl Scout Cookie Fillings
Here comes the fun part, assembling each of these flavors.
Each filling recipe is enough to make 6 of that flavor. So, you can choose to make 2 flavors for 1 cupcake tin, or make all 4 flavors using 2 cupcake tins in which another box of brownie mix will be needed. You could also halve each of the recipes to make all 4 in one tin.
However many flavors you choose, the filling instructions all remain the same.
Once the brownies are hollowed out, scoop the peanut butter filling and the coconut caramel filling into the brownie cups until it’s level with the top. We don’t want to over fill these two flavors.
As for the mint and sprinkle buttercream, fill each cup and add another small scoop of filling to each top. It should only be an extra teaspoon amount. Then, when you press the cookies on top, the filling will smoosh out the sides so you can see the filling from the top.
Press all the remaining cookies on top and place the brownies (still in the tin) back in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes. We want the filling to firm up so the brownies will be easier to remove.
Once chilled, run a knife around the edge of each brownie. They should loosen and become very easy to pop out.
Drizzle with extra toppings and they’re ready to eat!
