Samoa Brownies

Its girl scout cookie time!! I am sure you have seen those cute little girls in front of the store, but the big question is did you buy some?? I used to be one of those cute little girls selling cookies and I am proud of it!! Being a girl scout gave me a lot of memories and I did a lot of things I might not have done with out being in the troop. Being a girl scout isn't something I did for a short time I was a daisy all the way to a junior!

Anyways... the cookies are all to die for but only come around once a year! Now when I was selling them my parents had friends that would try and buy enough thin mints for a year! But you don't need to do that you can just head over to my friends blog and make hers when ever you want! Check out the Thin Mints over at CookingMorningNooNight.

For me I love the samoas!! In fact so did my dad he gets his box and just kept it in his lunch box so he wouldn't have to share. But now I have a fun way you can too have this yummy cookie at home its just not a cookie its in brownie form! I got inspired from Host the Toasts brownie!

Her cookie base was a perfect idea! add in the brownie and I went for a home made caramel sauce!

What you need

Cookie crust
1 cup Flour
1/4 sugar
1 stick cold butter cut into pieces

You can go homemade like she did on the link but I went for a box of Ghirardelli double chocolate brownies!

Caramel coconut sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup half and half
4 Tablespoons butter
1 cup toasted coconut

What to do

Preheat oven to 350°
Line a 8x8 baking dish with foil and spray with no stick spray.  Mix together the cookie crust items until a soft dough forms. It will seem dry but with come together in a ball when pressed by your hands. Press dough into your prepared pan and bake 15-18 minutes until the top is lightly golden. Cool for 10 minutes and then place in the refrigerator or cool for another 20 minutes.

Mix together your brownie mix per instructions and pour on top of cooled cookie layer and bake for the time instructed for me this was about 45 minutes.

Now you need to cool on a wire rack and then place in the freezer to firm them up some more. While in the freezer make your caramel sauce and mix about 1/2-3/4 of it with your toasted coconut. Remove from freezer and pour coconut caramel over you brownies and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.

Cut up and enjoy!! Now I have to apologize that I don't have more pictures. what was I
