It’s National Girl Scouts Day! And yesterday was National Campfire Girls Day! And both of these special days mark the anniversary of very important organizations that teach young ladies important skills to become successful and independent women. And yet we’re mostly thinking about cookies. If the Campfire Girls had cookies, we’d have talked more about them yesterday. Sorry, girls.
Anyway, nothing in this world is quite as delicious as a Girl Scout cookie–and that includes their Samoas. Or their Caramel deLites. We’re pretty sure they’re the same cookie. We’ve certainly done enough taste-testing on the subject. The important thing here is that we have a recipe that makes brownies out of what’s already an amazing combination of chocolate, caramel, coconut, and cookie. Make yourself some Chocolate-Coconut Brownies and indulge yourself in the adventurous spirit of the Girl Scouts…
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 1 chocolate 2-layer cake mix
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1-1/4 cups caramel sauce
- One 7-ounce box Samoas® – Caramel deLites™ Girl Scout Cookies, crushed, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 9 x 13 pan. Completely combine cake mix, butter and evaporated milk. Pour half of the mixture in the pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Sprinkle milk chocolate chips over warm cake. Drizzle 3/4 cup caramel over chips. Next add 1/2 cookie crumbs. Top with the rest of the cake batter. Bake for 10 more minutes. Drizzle cake with 1/2 cup caramel sauce. Sprinkle the rest of the cookie crumbs on top.
*Samoas® – Caramel deLites™ Girl Scout Cookies are vanilla cookies covered with caramel on top and bottom then rolled in coconut and striped with chocolate.
And don’t forget to back these Chocolate-Coconut Brownies in the Girl Scouts tradition. We think that means sharing with the less fortunate, or at least sharing in general. That means we’re off to make another batch…
