Well, the Girl Scout cookie season seems to have officially come and gone. Being that I was a Brownie in my wee little years, I feel compelled to support the troops by purchasing cookies from the daughters of my co-workers. This ordering can present a problem because I have a thing for Girl Scout Cookies; often stockpiling them away in the freezer for some mid-summer noshing. I also tend to over buy them and get really sick of the sugar goodness before they are all consumed or covered in freezer burn. Due to this wastefulness, I only ordered 5 boxes this year. Two of those boxes were Caramel deLites aka Samoas and much to my surprise, they were almost gone within a few days. This presented a problem since they are a family favorite!
When I saw a recipe for Somoas Bars, I knew I had to give them a try in an attempt to rectify the scant supply of Caramel deLites in my fridge. This recipe seemed easy enough and had all the yummy cookie flavors that I have grown to love over the years. This recipe is not hard to make and requires pretty basic ingredients. The result is a good cookie bar reminiscent of Caramel deLites; however, I think the “crust” needs to be tweaked a bit. It seemed a tad thick and chewy as opposed to thin and crisp, but they were still gobbled up!
