Samoa Brownies

If you are a girl scout cookie fan, specifically a Samoa Cookie fan, you need to stop what you are doing, and make these Samoa Brownies. They are so simple and full of chocolatey, caramel, coconut goodness, you just can't resist.

I live for Girl’s Scout cookie season, just so I can get my hands on some of those beautiful, Samoa cookies.
I don’t think there is any better combination that chocolate, caramel and coconut.  These brownies combine all the flavors of my favorite cookie into a dessert that just might rival the actual cookie.
They are simple to make, and full of flavor. If you have to make a dessert to feed a crowd, this is definitely a good one to make.
They are also extremely rich, so it doesn’t take much to feel satisfied after eating a small one. If you are a Samoa (or Coconut Dream) cookie fan, you need these beauties in your life, stat.

what size pan do I use to make this recipe?

This recipe depends on what brownie mix you use. You will most likely use an 8 x 8, 9 x 9, or 9 x 13 inch pan for this recipe, depending on what brownie mix you use.

For this recipe, you will want to make the brownies, according to the box directions, then follow the rest of the recipe as directed.

how to get the perfect chocolate drizzle:

Drizzling chocolate over desserts can get a little tricky. Especially when the dessert is large and covers an entire pan.

To get the best drizzle, you will want to melt your chocolate (I used milk chocolate chips, and melted them in the microwave), then pour the melted chocolate into a zip lock bag.

in one of the bottom corners of the bag, cut a small hole (depending on how big or small you cut your hole, will determine the size of your drizzle), and squeeze the chocolate out of the bag, onto your dessert, moving back and forth slowly, covering all the area you wish, with your drizzle.

That’s all there is to it.

  2. Delicious! Made these last night for dinner with friends...couldn't wait til they cooled or chilled - we ate them warm and loved them! I was nervous about melting the caramel...I don't usually have good luck with it, but it came out great (although in a pinch I think you could maybe use the jarred stuff for sundaes?!?) Thank you for such a fun treat!
  3. I made these a few days ago and they are so good! Honestly, they don't really taste like a samoa cookie, but none-the-less, they are delicious!

    I brought some of these to our National Night Out block party last night and they were gobbled up! This is definitely a great recipe. Have a glass of milk nearby, they are quite rich :)

    Attempted these tonight and my caramel became very hard as soon as adding the coconut... so much so that I could barely manage to spread the mixture on top of my cooled brownies. I used Kraft brand caramels. Any suggestions on where I went wrong?
