These Samoas Cookie Bars are melt-in-your mouth, magically delicious! They’re like famous Samoas cookies, but made super easy in a dessert bar. We think you’ll like these bars better than the original cookies.
Samoas Cookie Bars
We just got back in town from a road trip to Chicago. I super like Chicago, with it’s gorgeous evening skyline and foodie scene. The quaint coffee shops with their smooth cold brews and Italian grandma-owned pizzerias are worth the 6-hour drive.
That’s been our weird travel mission for years. We fly or road trip to major cities for the run of it. Not random running (though I’d totally do that too) but I mean legit races. I do the running while Hubby heroically manages to hustle alltheboys all over the city and acts as our race cameraman. [Like I said, he’s a superhero.] Then, we all stay for the food. And maybe we get weirdly touristy while we’re at it.
Theres actually now a name for this madness: Run-cation. I wasn’t making it up. As trendy as it is, I think the run-cation is a concept that’s here to stay.
Just like the ever-famous Samoas cookies. Those Girl Scout goodies hit the ground running and never looked back.
Nowadays there are everything and anything Samoas. There are Samoas cheesecakes – my next cheesecake endeavor – and there’s this addictive Samoas Snack Mix that is party-perfect.
I’ll go ahead and put in in writing that I’ll likely never make round Samoas cookies with holes in ’em, because it involves rote cookie hassles that would drive me batty.
But these way easier Samoas Cookie Bars? I’ll gladly take requests for these over and over again…
Better Than Cookies
These Samoas Cookie Bars are simple and crazy delicious. I’ve been told many times they are so much better than the boxed cookies. I’m a faithful Girl Scout cookie buyer [who can say no to those sweet faces?] but I must humbly agree…these bars kind of are better 😇
These Samoas cookie bars magically melt in your mouth. The cookie base is an irresistible buttery, tender shortbread.
That buttery shortbread is topped with all the chocolate and easy 4-ingredient homemade caramel. DIY caramel is an absolute game changer.
Don’t forget the generous sprinkling of deliciously toasted coconut.
So. So. Good. Can’t-stop-eating good. Tip: these are perfect for sharing at every gathering possible.
Here’s to trends that are so good, they become permanent.
