Easy Girl Scout Samoas (Copycat)

These are my DS and DD's favorite of the girl scout cookies. They asked me to make a few copycat recipes but they weren't quite right. These fit the bill and have lots more coconut and caramel. They take some extra time but I get requests for them constantly. I keep the ingredients on hand so I can always make a batch. Enjoy! NOTE: Using these specific brands makes the best samoa possible. WARNING: Cookie addiction has been noted while under the influence of this recipe.

ingredients

directions

  • Toast coconut flakes in 350 oven for 6-10 minutes until golden brown.
  • Place in a bowl when toasted.
  • Unwrap caramels, add milk and salt. Microwave for 1-2 minutes in 30 second intervals in a shallow bowl. The mixture should be creamy and easy to spread.
  • Line a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper.
  • Using a knife, spread each cookie with the caramel mixture, be generous.
  • Dip the cookie into the toasted coconut, pressed cookie down to get as much coconut on it as possible.
  • Let cookie cool on the cookie sheet until caramel hardens.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a plastic sandwich bag.
  • Snip end and drizzle cookies with chocolate.
  • Note: I usually only use about half of the coconut per box of cookies. I keep it in my fridge in a plastic container. That way one less step for the next time.
