For this week’s gift giving idea I turned a Girl Scout cookie into a 20 minute bark recipe.
I’ve taken the shortbread base of a Samoas cookie-chopped it up and enveloped it in a burnt caramel sauce. Staying in line with the cookie, I wanted to make sure the coconut came through as the dominating flavor, so I layered the top of the bark with a heavy sprinkling of toasted coconut . To finish like the cookie I drizzled chocolate on top, but also added a caramel drizzle to it as well.
So the question: How does it compare?
Well, Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookie and these are a damn good cousin to them and a whole lot less work! It has all the flavors and the textures. My only advice, make two batches-one for eating and one for giving.
Now as many of you know the Holiday Bark Series is something I started a few weeks ago and will run until the end of December. And if you are a regular reader than you know I’m a contributor at Endless Simmer, my other blog family. I’ve been a bit absent from there lately from being so busy, but I’m back on track and have decided to move this series over to there. I will continue to post the teaser here, but the remaining post and recipe can found there.
