I LOVE Samoa Girl Scout Cookies (also known as Caramel deLites). I was a girl scout, all the way up to Juniors. Highlight of the experience–eating girl scout cookies. These Samoa Cookie Bars have all the same components, but are much more caramel oriented (which is really why I like the Girl Scout Cookies anyways, for the caramel). I won’t claim they taste just like them, but they are really amazing in their own right. I have been exercising an incredible amount of self control in not buying 30 boxes of girl scout cookies, but I am feeling left out, so I had to make something like them so I felt better.
For dipping the bottoms in chocolate, the way I wrote it in the recipe is just what worked for me and the time I had. By all means, cut them and then dip the bottoms (you will need more chocolate), or find another way. Do what works.
I hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to support your local girl scouts!
