Happy snowy Saturday my friends!
We finally have snow in Chicago, and it’s gorgeous! So while the flakes are falling, I’ve been super busy inside baking for some fabulous CCHS performers :) Last night I tried a recipe that Ellen and I found on Pinterest. Ellen really likes the Girl Scout Samoa cookies, well these are 100X better if I do say so myself. They do take a little time to make, not difficult, just a few steps. Most of the ingredients you probably have on hand except for maybe the caramel sauce and coconut. The result of your labor, is a rich, chewy chocolatey coconut bar with a shortbread base. Simply delectable. Please don’t omit the toasting of the coconut, this step is really worth it as it adds a really nice crunch and brings out the coconut flavor.
I can’t say I made any changes to this great recipe…but it is yummy, a nice alternative to the regular cookie and perhaps a nice sweet treat for your Valentine :)
