While reading Self Magazine I came across this recipe for Samoas a.k.a Caramel de-Lites by Girl Scout Cookies. Side note: These are my FAVORITE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES EVER! The best part is this recipe is lower in fat and calories. Sign me up........

  • 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut
  • 12 chewy caramels
  • 3 tbsp. dark or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 24 reduced-fat Nilla Wafers 
  • 1/4 cup slim milk
  • Parchment paper
  • reusable bag
Heat oven to 300 degrees. On a baking sheet, toast sweetened coconut. Turning every 5 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool. Using parchment paper cover separate baking sheet; set wafers on top. In a microwavable bowel, microwave caramels and milk on high, stirring until smooth. Should take about 4 minutes. Fold sweetened coconut into caramel mixture. Spread about 1 tbsp. caramel mixture onto each wafer. Let cookies cool completely (I put cookies in refrigerator for this step) Next microwave chocolate, stir often, until melted. Should take about 3 minutes. Transfer chocolate into reusable bag. Snip tiny portion of bag corner. Drizzle cookies with chocolate, let cool.
