Joining the Girl Scouts!

I know I'm no girl scout, never was and never will be. Alas, Brandon asked if I could make Samoas. Outwardly, I said "No problem." Inwardly, I was am I going to get this recipe? Thank goodness for the internet! :-D

I started with a basic shortbread recipe from a website I admire so very much The Joy of Baking. The recipes I've made from there have always turned out so perfectly. And that is no joke.

The topping recipe I got from Robbie's Recipes. Though next time I think I will only use 3 cups coconut and use caramel instead of condensed milk and more chocolate on the topping. All in all, it turned out okay as far as I can tell. I can't eat it but Brandon says they're good.

Just an idea, but maybe next time you can pour your chocolate syrup into a clean ketchup plastic bottle and drizzle the syrup over the macaroons, to give it a "cleaner" look?

Those look amazing. My husband loves samoas! I'm more of a thin minter myself! :-) But we have girl "guides" over here... and they sure don't sell cookies... so I'll HAVE to give these a try! LOL!

Great photos said...

Here's what I would do. I'd freeze these and then dip them in melted chocolate. Neater to eat and a little closer to the real thing. Look yummy!
