Samoa Brownies

Samoas are my favorite girl scout cookie.  I have already made Samoa Bark and Samoa Cookie Bars.  Both were delicious but I think I like these the best with the rich brownie bottom.  We went to dinner at a friends house last weekend and I brought these along. The brownies are from and the tops are   adapted from

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup hershey's cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 box (1 sleeve) of Lorna Doone shortbread cookies
4 cups shredded coconut, toasted
2 bags 14 oz bags of caramels
4 tbsp milk
1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, melted

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 13 x 9 x 2 pan with PAM.

Place butter in microwave safe bowl.  Microwave at medium or melt setting for 2 minutes or until melted.  Stir in sugar and vanilla.  Add in eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.  Add cocoa, beat until well blended.  Add flour, baking powder and salt.

Pour into prepared pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spread coconut on baking pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip coconut over and then cook for another 2-3 minutes until toasted.

In a large microwaveable bowl, add unwrapped caramels and milk and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally.  Cook until caramels are melted and smooth.

Take cookies out of sleeve and cut into chunks with a sharp knife.  Add coconut and cookies to melted caramel and mix together.  Spread mixture over cooled brownies.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or freeze for an hour.  Melt chocolate chips in microwave on medium for 1-2 minutes.  Stir until smooth.  Drizzle over top.  Let chocolate set.  Cut into bars.

Enjoy!  Susan
