Homemade Girl Scout Cookies

It’s that time of year, Girl Scouts on every corner peddling cookies. We bought a box of Samoas, whch is hands down, the best Girl Scout cookie out there.

One of my daughters decided she’d like to try and recreate a Samoa at home, so we embarked on a cookie adventure!

It is quite a process with many steps:

  • Make the cookie – we chose shortbread
  • Temper the chocolate – we chose 72% dark chocolate (the best!)
  • Dip the bottoms of the cookies
  • Toast the coconut
  • Make the caramel sauce
  • Drizzle the cookies with caramel and put coconut on top
  • Chill to set
  • Re-temper the chocolate
  • Drizzle the tops of the cookies
  • EAT!

That is a pretty darn good cookie!

This was a out of my comfort zone, I don’t normally bake traditional things like shortbread with lots of butter, sugar and white flour. But, they turned out well, we had fun and learned things along the way!
