I just can't stand it anymore - I can't wait one more day for my girl scout cookies to arrive at my door. Soooo - I took matters into my own hands and whipped up a batch of Samoas for myself. For those of you who have lived under a rock for the last 10 years a Samoa is a buttery shortbread cookie covered in caramel and coconut goodness and drizzled with chocolate. It's no wonder that I've been obsessed with this delicious cookie since I placed my first order for Samoas about 2 weeks ago.
The anticipation of the impending girl scout cookie season has gotten the best of me. What can I say ? I'm weak. These homemade Samoas are the perfect treat to get me through the next couple of weeks until my Samoas arrive.
Home Made Samoas
Dump dough out onto a silpat.
Spread coconut on a silpat mat and bake 10 minutes at 350.
Spoon caramel coconut filling onto caramel topped cookies. (Trust me - there is no easy or meat way to do this.)
Dip bottoms of cookies in chocolate and set on waxed paper to cool. Drizzle tops with additional melted chocolate.
All I have to say is - ridiculous. These cookies are RIDICULOUS!
The snow has just stared to fall here in my little town. Forget the bread and milk - I've got a batch of Samoa cookies and a roaring fire - I'm all set to weather this winter storm. Bring on the snow - I've got plenty of cookies.
