These Samoa Cookie Sandwiches could not be any better! Buttery sugary cookies, caramel frosting, chocolate sauce and toasted coconut.
Here we are approaching the end of January. Are we done with all the healthy eating yet? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to damage your diet, but these cookies are a necessary cheat. I mean treat. See what I did there?
If you are anything like me, then you look forward to this time of year because you know it means Girl Scout Cookies. Tell me, do you have a favorite? I have SUCH a hard time deciding. I can never turn down a Thin Mint, and I am often fighting for the last Samoa cookie. Then there are the Peanut Butter Patties; you know I am not sharing those! I know you can get very similar cookies at Walmart or whatnot, but it is just not the same.
Since I don’t have access to samoa cookies all year around, I’ve started making samoa- inspired desserts to curb my cravings. If you were to search Samoa on my blog, you would find things like this dip, or even a no-bake icebox cake. Best of all, you would find this Sinful Samoa Cake.
I’m back today with my first Samoa dessert of the year. These Samoa Cookie Sandwiches are a must-make. Do you remember last month’s Perfect MnM Cookies? Well this starts with the same base cookie recipe. It’s everything that is inside of this cookie that makes it extra special.
In between these cookies, you’ve got a layers of hot fudge sauce and caramel frosting. Then they are finished off with toasted coconut. You only need a thin layer of hot fudge. I warmed a jar of hot fudge sauce for about 30 seconds in the microwave. It needs to be easily spreadable, but not very hot.
To add the frosting, I used a 1M tip. Start frosting from the outside of the cookie and into the middle. You might have a little leftover frosting, but since when has that been a bad thing?
Once you sandwich these cookies together, roll them in toasted coconut. You may need to press the coconut into frosting a little bit to get it to stick. These cookies are a bit on the sweeter side, but that’s okay with you, right? Good.
