13 Chocolate Coconut Recipes Inspired by the Samoa Girl Scout Cookie


Every year the package arrives. Those famous Girl Scout cookies.


While I’m no snob to the wondrous Thin Mint, sometimes (meaning often), I crave that chocolate caramel toasted coconut goodness that’s wrapped up perfectly in the Samoa cookie.


Once in the house, that’s all I can think about. (Yes, I’m ill that way.)


Five minutes later…no more cookies. ☹️
