Samoa Bars

Let me start out by saying the pictures don’t do these bars justice. My mom brought me a box of my favorite girl scout cookies, Samoas of course, and I got to thinking after I soon finished the entire box, I bet I could make something like this! So I quickly found a bar recipe which I can honestly admit didn’t turn out as pretty as I wanted (hence the pictures) but they were very yummy nonetheless! I opted to not drizzle chocolate over the top of the bars and it really brought out the taste of the coconut-caramel topping that I love so much about the girl scout Samoas.

I found the recipe from another blog (http://bakingbites.com/2009/02/homemade-girl-scout-cookies-samoas-bars/), and I want to try the homemade thin mint recipe sometime soon as well.

The recipe was fun to make; I taste tested the crust and topping each by themselves, and they were delicious. A note to those trying the recipe: it really is important to allow the topping to set. I was very impatient and put the pan in the freezer to hurry up the cooling process so I could cut the bars, and it made it difficult when I dipped the bottoms in the chocolate because not all of the topping had set into the crust and some of them crumbled in the melted chocolate, oops! I definitely recommend this recipe to all of those Samoa lovers out there though, because we all know Girl Scout cookie season doesn’t last all year!
