Have you ever had a Samoa cookie from the Girl scouts? Are they not the best cookies ever? I found a recipe online to make some but it was really time consuming so I had to come up with something else to get the same taste a lot quicker. Therefore, I thought what could be better than Samoa brownies and was I ever right. I cannot even begin to explain the pure yumminess of these brownies.
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar + 2 tablespoons
1 -1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1-1/3 cup shredded coconut
4-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
10 caramel candies
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, add butter, sugar, condensed milk, coconut, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder and salt, mix well. Add eggs, chocolate chips. Tear caramels into small pieces and add. Blend well.
2. In a non-stick 8×16 cake pan lightly spray with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and smooth top. Bake 20-30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool then cut into bars.
