I LOVE LOVE LOVE Girl Scout Cookies and Samoas are my favorite!  I think they are called caramel delites now though.



Anywho here is a recipe I love and wanted to share with you
Gather the ingredients:
for the cookie base:
1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups plain all purpose flour, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 cup butter, token 1970's Sunbeam mixer, 1 tbsp. milk

preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Cream butter and sugar

spray cookie sheet with Pam

add flour, baking powder and salt to butter sugar mixture. Mix well, then add vanilla and milk

Gather ingredients for topping:
12 ounce caramels, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 2/3 cup coconut, 1 tbsp. milk

batter will be firm and not sticky. Drop 1-2 tsp. onto greased cookie sheet

take a flat bottomed drinking glass, spray with Pam and press onto the cookies to flatten them. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes

melt 8 ounces chocolate almond bark (chocolate chips will work in a pinch but I like the way almond bark sets firmer)

toast coconut at 300 degrees for 15 minutes stirring every 5 minutes

melt caramels, salt and milk over double boiler til smooth

remove cookies and cool for 10 minutes

pour about 2/3 of the melted almond bark onto aluminum foil and press bottom half only of cookies onto the chocolate then lay on foil to cool

cookies are ready for topping

marry the caramel and coconut

chewy sticky caramelly goodness. Spread 1-2 tbsp of topping over each cookie and spread evenly

pour remaining almond bark into ziploc bag and cut off a tiny corner of the bag for piping. Squeeze in any pattern you like over the cookies.

Let cool completely and ENJOY! Now go make some

It is so not fair to taunt a diabetic with a serious caramel
addiction with a yummy recipe like this! OMG! I am so going
to have to make some of these today (and eat some before
anyone gets home! LOL)
Thanks for sharing!
Peace & Love,

 Shocked
When I found this post I reacted as followed:

(reads) Homemade Girl Scout Cookies-Samoas!! *Puts shoes on*  All I need is caramel and coconut!! *Grabs keys* Look at those PICTURES!

...

A few line jumping eye jabs at the grocery store later and I can enjoy your recipe! I don't know whether to begin thanking you or start praying to the weight gain god for mercy!

They are wonderful!

Where I am, they were always called Caramel deLites until a couple years ago, then they became Samoas o.0

I made these as a Christmas gift for my husbands family the first year we were together. TO this day, they still talk about them and demand them. I haven't made them since... hahaha. They look awesome!

Thanks for the recipe!  I love step by step procedures with pictures.  I will try to bake this.  It looks so yummy.  Can I bake this in microwave oven?  That's all I have.

I asked about the Caramel Delights vs. Samoas thing, and it turns out there are 2 manufacturers of Girl Scout cookies, and for some reason they have different names even though they are producing the exact same cookies.  Huh So depending on where you live and which manufacturer is makes cookies in your area, the name might change.

WOW. Those look delicious. I love Samoas. When I was a kid peddling the Girl Scout cookies, they were Caramel Delights...

YUM, thanks for sharing.
