      Girl Scout Samoa Cookies
      24 -30 shortbread cookies
      6 tablespoons butter
      1/2 cup sugar
      1/2 cup light corn syrup
      1/2 of 14−oz can sweetened condensed milk
      1/2 tsp. vanilla
      4 cups toasted coconut
      1 cup semi−sweet or milk chocolate chips

      In 2−quart saucepan over medium−low heat, combine butter,
      sugar and corn syrup. Heat to a full boil, stirring constantly
      with a wooden spoon. Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
      Slowly pour in sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly.
      Continue cooking over low heat until candy thermometer reaches
      220−228 degrees. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Beat until
      creamy. Immediately stir in toasted coconut and mix well.
      Spoon mixture by teaspoonfuls onto each shortbread cookie,
      Flatten slightly and with the end of a
      wooden spoon poke a small round hole into the center of each
      cookie. Cool completely.

      Melt chocolate chips and drizzle thinly in stripes over
      cookies and let chocolate harden at room temperature. Store
      in airtight container.

      But what about the cookie part? They have a crunchy cookie under the caramel, kinda like a Twix bar.

      You just use shortbread cookies, which you can make your own, but usually the dollar store has them.

      These would make great cookies for Christmas. I always like to give yummy home baked cookies to everyone.
