I've never met anyone who didn't like Girl Scout cookies. Unfortunately we all eventually run out of our stash and need sweets to tide us over until they show up again. I saw this recipe for Samoan Brownies and knew they would hit the spot. These brownies are amazing! I had to send them to work with my Hubby or I would have eaten the entire pan. Absolutely delicious.
1 brownie mix (+ ingredients to prepare)
3 1/2 cups shredded coconut, toasted
(2) 14 oz. pkgs caramel, unwrapped
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. milk
1 cup chocolate chips
Prepare browni mix according to box directions and cool. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place coconut on baking pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir and cook for another 2-3 minutes until toasted. Watch closely so it doesn't burn. I would check it every 30 seconds or so. In a large microwavable bowl combine unwrapped caramels, salt and milk. Cook on high for 3-5 minutes. Stirring every minute. Cook until all caramels are melted and smooth. Add coconut and mix together. Spread over cooled brownies. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until cooled. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle over brownies. Let brownies sit on counter while chocolate sets. (about 1 hour)
