Wow, was that table busy when we got back out there! People were standing in line, and it was also obvious that some people had come there specifically to buy cookies. They were literally driving up to the table! We picked up a box each of our favorites, Thin Mints and Samoas. The price has gone up over time and the boxes seem to have become smaller, but it's a good cause and the cookies are tasty. It's sort of a March tradition for us to pick up a box or two.
But if you crave the taste of Samoas all year round and would like to replicate the flavor, here is the recipe for you: Homemade Samoa Bars! The recipe is from Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life, one of the most prolific bakers out there. I always turn to her blog or to recipes of hers I've pinned to my Sweet Treats Pinterest board if I am looking for a new and different treat.
I made these Homemade Samoa Bars back in February when we hosted the dessert course for a teen progressive dinner. I had asked one of the teens for ideas, and her response was, "Anything chocolate!" So I made four chocolate items to choose from, and these bars were one. They got raves and disappeared quickly.
Another of the pins on my Sweet Treats Pinterest board is this wonderful assortment of Girl Scout Cookie-Themed Recipes from Julie’s Eats and Treats. These bars are included in the collection, as well as loads of other Girl Scout Cookie-flavored treats. You might want to try some of these for when your boxes of Girl Scout cookies run out!
