I made the recipe as stated and it made about 30 cookies. I used caramel ice cream topping instead of melting caramels, which worked fine. I'm sure you could make your own caramel too. I think in the future I will buy pre-made generic butter cookies and save myself the hassle of baking the cookies since the process was a bit time consuming (about 1.5 hours total)

These cookies are just too time intensive and the shortbread part of the cookie crumbled all over, it would need adjusting for high altitude cooking. If I were to make these again, I would use a store bought sugar cookie dough and disperse mini chocolate chips on top instead because melted chocolate globbed up. Be careful toasting the coconut, it burns easily and I had to do this step twice but didn't mind because it smells delicious toasted. I wonder if it could be toasted stove top while stirring constantly to keep a closer eye on it.

I made 125 of these and brought them to school. They were a huge hit. Most people said they liked them more than samoas
