Itâ€™s that time of year. You know what time Iâ€™m talking about.
Girl Scouts have positioned themselves outside every grocery store, drug store, ballpark, everywhere you could possibly need to go. I try, I really doâ€¦ I try to walk past them without making eye contact. It never works. This year was no different â€“ I ended up with a box of Samoas (whatâ€™s the new name? Caramel something-or-another?) that my children demolished within seconds.
These bars, which are meant to be like my beloved Samoas, have been on my must make list for years now and I am so sad that Iâ€™ve waited this long to make them! They are so easy, so quick, and taste exactly like the Samoas. Please donâ€™t be scared of the 3 steps. Iâ€™m telling you, thereâ€™s nothing difficult about this recipe.
If you wanted to take these one step further, you could dip the bottoms of the bars in melted chocolate. Iâ€™m not a chocolate fan so I skipped that part but if you wanted to, just melt a bag of chocolate chips instead of the 1/2 cup that this recipe calls for. Once itâ€™s melted, dip the bars one at a time and then place on parchment (or wax paper) to harden.
