Samoa Brownies

Print Recipe Jump to Recipe

I’ve been indulging on Girl Scout cookies ever since I can remember. Thin Mints and Samoas have always been my go-to. I was secretly excited when my daughter became a Daisy and then a Brownie. I HAD to buy lots of cookies to support her troop, right?!? ????????

This recipe combines two amazing desserts into one. Samoa Brownies start with our ultimate fudge brownies and get topped with a delicious coconut topping and then drizzled with chocolate. You won’t believe how much they resemble Samoa cookies!

Samoa brownies

The Samoa topping is made by heating sugar until it turns to an amber color. Then add butter, cream and coconut. Unsweetened desiccated coconut is what really makes these identical to the Samoa cookies. Desiccated coconut can usually be found by the specialty flours. It can also be ordered on Amazon.

To finish these off, just melt a half cup of chocolate chips and drizzle over the brownies with a spoon.

Happy Baking!
