Girl Scout Samoa Cookies

Girl Scout Samoa Cookies

Something beautiful is happening right now. It’s Girl Scout Cookie Season (feel free to imagine me screaming this part!)!! Every year, for about 7 weeks between January and March, we can all get our fill of carb & sugar-loading deliciousness in the form of a box (or 12) of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, or my personal favorites – Samoas. I’ve been known to literally stalk the local Girl Scout Troops just so that I don’t miss their sales & end up without cookies for the Season.

But then Spring rolls around and the hoarded boxes of cookies slowly run out….what then!!?? I can’t believe it took me this long to come up with a solution – just make your own favorite Girl Scout Cookie recipe once you run out of the real deal. Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% for supporting your local Troops & buying as many boxes as you can stuff in your pantry/fridge/freezer…but for the rest of the year, making your own is the perfect cure for that cookie withdrawal we all know so well.

These absolutely taste like the real thing – amazingly crunchy, chewy, caramelly-coconutty awesome! Wish me luck at not gaining 40 pounds over the next year due to this recipe.
