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. You may like these Samoas Cookie Bars way better than the boxed originals.
Yield: about 24-30 bars 1x
For the Shortbread:
For the Bars:
* If needed, you can use store-bought caramel in place of homemade (the flavor will probably be somewhat different.)
* To toast coconut: Play shredded coconut in even layer on rimmed cookie sheet. Place in oven that’s preheated to 350F; bake 10 min., stirring frequently during the last half of baking time, to prevent burning. Be very watchful, as coconut burns fast.
* To melt dark chocolate chips: Place chips in glass bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between each increment. Repeat until just melted; take care not to overdo it, or it will seize up. Place melted chocolate in a small Ziploc bag, cut a small hole in the corner, and drizzle onto dessert.
