This is how you make Girl Scout cookie bundt cakes. Thin mint and Samoa cookie flavored cakes made right at home are here.
So I love Girl Scout cookies, who doesn’t, and any way I can get the taste of it I will. I thought instead of trying to make cookies I would make mini bundt cakes with the same flavors of our favorite Girl Scout cookies.
- Here is how you make Girl Scout cookie bundt cakes so you can enjoy the taste all year long.
I suppose you could make the cakes from scratch but seriously, I am all about the toppings and like EASY so I used boxed cake mix for the base of the bundt cakes and saved my energy for the toppings….which is really what it is all about anyway right??!!

Here is what you will need.
Girl Scout cookie bundt cakes
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- 1 tsp coconut extract flavoring
- 1 1/2 c coconut
- 1 1/2 c Wilton candy melts
- 1/2 c Andes Mints (crushed0
- 1 c caramel
- Bake cake mixes according to the directions. I added 1 tsp. coconut flavoring and 1/2 c. coconut to the white cake mix before baking. Once your bundts are done then you will want toast your coconut, the other 1 c. I put in a pan in my convection oven for about 6 minutes, but check often so it doesn't burn. Then you will want to melt your caramels. It is easiest to use the balls of caramel ment for melting (link in post). Melt in microwave 30 sec at a time, stirring in between. I add a tbsp. of water to help it thin and melt better. Once liquidy pour on top of your white bundt cakes and immediately sprinkle coconut. Melt your candy melts 30 sec. at a time in the microwave, stirring in between. Drizzle over white bundts and pour over chocolate bundts. Immediately sprinkle Andes Mints on chocolate bundts so they stick.
The directions are above but here are a few tips and items that made things easier when making these Girl Scout cookie bundt cakes. I found these caramel bits that are balls instead of squares and SO much easier to melt. I also found crushed Andes Mints at Walmart but if not just put some in a baggie and roll a rolling pin over them. 😉
And with all my recipes using melted chocolate I HIGHLY recommend using Wilton cocoa candy melts. So much easier than chocolate chips. You can make these in a large bundt but I love this mini bundt pan (aff. link) because then there is no cutting involved really and can be served as is.
Then melt Wilton candy melts, use light brown or dark, and drizzle on the top of your Samoa bundts and cover your Thin Mint bundt cakes. Immediately put your crushed Andes Mints on top of the chocolate on your chocolate bundt cakes so they stick.
This samoa cake will melt a bit but I think that makes them look even cooler. That’s how you make Samoa and Thin Mint bundt cakes.
