Girl Scout Samoa Cookies Recipe

Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout Cookies.

There is just something about the chew caramel and chocolate that I can't resist. I know that I am not alone in this. Here is a good and fairly easy to make copycat that uses store bought shortbread cookies.

Girl Scout Samoa Cookies

24-30 shortbread cookies
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups toasted coconut
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Place each shortbread cookie in cup of a greased muffin tin.
2. In 2-quart saucepan over medium-low heat, combine butter, sugar and corn syrup.
3. Heat to a full boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
4. Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
5. Slowly pour in sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly.
6. Continue cooking over low heat until candy thermometer reaches 220-228 degrees.
7. Remove from heat.
8. Stir in vanilla.
9. Beat until creamy.
10. Immediately stir in toasted coconut and mix well.
11. Spoon mixture by teaspoonfuls over shortbread cookies.
12. Cool completely.
13. Remove cooled cookies from muffin tin onto waxed paper.
14. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle thinly in stripes over cookies and let chocolate harden at room temperature.
15. Store in airtight container.

I hope to continue The Best Copycat Restaurant Recipes Blog for many years. But I doubt I will ever come across a copycat recipe easier than this.

And they're actually really good.

(For long-time readers - Yes, this is a repeat.  Due to some goofy name choices, combining several recipe in one post and other "beginner-blogger" mistakes, some of the early recipes on this blog are almost impossible to find.  I know that people will love them if they only try them.  But they can only try them if they see them.  So I am repeating them so they can.  Thanks for understanding.)
