Samoa (Chocolate-Caramel-Coconut) Brownies

Whats your favorite girl scout cookie? Mine is without a doubt, Samoa’s! When I was a girl scout, I used to hoard boxes of these (I think then they were called Coconut Delite’s then) and I could polish off an entire box all by myself. And now anytime I know a girl scout selling cookies, I buy at least 6 boxes of Samoa’s.  The coconut, chocolate, caramel goodness are just too much.

I bought toasted coconut flakes a few weeks ago so I started looking up recipes to make homemade samoa cookies but honestly, it seemed a little too complicated and I was feeling pretty lazy last night. BUT I still wanted to make something sweet. So I took the easy way out and used a brownie mix but added homemade caramel sauce, coconut and chocolate drizzle. These things were better than the cookies, which is a bad thing because now I can make them any time of year! Ahhh.

White Chocolate Chip Coffee Brownies

Starting my dessert entries on this blog with brownies is only fitting, since brownies top my very long list of favorite desserts. Honestly, I am not really a cake kind of gal (I mean, I will eat a slice if you put it front of me!) but I am DEFINITELY a brownie girl.

The brownie recipe I used is so tasty and honestly easy to make – it’s just a couple extra steps compared to using a box recipe. I add a layer of white chocolate chips and ground coffee to make it stand out from the usual party brownie.
