Samoa Brownies

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….

  1. Prepare brownie mix according to box directions and cool.

  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 :)
