What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

I can’t really decide.They are just all so good. Aren’t they?

Although, Samoas do probably rank higher than the rest of them.

Samoas?

Is a cookie with a shortbread base and a caramel-coconut top. Then, it’s dunked and topped with chocolate.

So good.

My kids aren’t big coconut eaters, so, when a box of these are in my house, my husband and I are the only ones who eat them. Not going to lie..it’s awesome. A whole box of cookies that we don’t have to share?

It’s a miracle.

Same thing happened with these bars.

They taste just like the Samoas Girl Scout cookie, but, are in bar form.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying a Samoas cookie, then, please, for sure, make these! You will be the happiest person ever.

Even if you have to share them with your kids or anyone else. 😉

I love samoas! Thanks for sharing this on the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop :) My son is 4 and sometimes asks if he likes whatever it is that I'm eating. Not gonna lie, I sometimes tell him there's no way he'd like the chocolate bar I'm shoving in my mouth. It's just for adults. Lol! This recipe looks so yummy, I just have to pin it for later.
