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!

If your your supply of Caramel deLites is quickly dwindling, click here for the recipe!

    They look delicious! The thick and chewy crust sounds good to me, but I could go for thin and crisp too.

    Never without fail I miss the girl scout cookie craze except for the couple of boxes my parents drop off.

    Great photo – I do want to try these and after reading Risa and your feedback on the crust, I think I will try to modify that when I do. Thanks

    These look great. Usually when I bake I bring stuff into the office the next day but these probably wouldn’t make it out of my apartment.
