Homemade Samoas Cookies


As far as I’m involved, there are two styles of individuals in the world: Samoas fans and Skinny Mint lovers. You will be 1 or the opposite. You can not be each. I picked my side 20 years in the past during my times being a Daisy and a Brownie. Group Samoas for life.

We now have Instructables to thank for this recipe. Just think about a buttery shortbread foundation piled higher with a mixture of toasted coconut and caramel that’s dunked and drizzled in dim chocolate. The end result can be a selfmade tackle the iconic Woman Scout cookie, ordinarily only readily available a few months out from the 12 months. So Stop hoarding those purple containers and free up that freezer House by baking up sweet and chewy Samoas from scratch.
