Dessert Redemption

I made a batch of Samoa bars once, but it was a complete and utter fail.

I went on pinterest of course, and found this recipe from love veggies and yoga. Check it out, it has vegan and gluten substitutions!

Pre-heat the oven to 350.

I started by melting 1 cup of butter.

I added 2 cups of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar.

Wait until the mixture is cool, so you don’t scramble your eggs.

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

2 cups shredded coconut

1 1/2 cups of flour

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Put into foil lined or greased pan. I used a cake pan.

I baked for 25 minutes. This is on the higher end, the recipe recommends 22-25.

They came out nice and golden.

They tasted just like samoa’s, dessert redemption achieved. They were so good I made our Superbowl guests take the leftovers otherwise I would eat them all day until they are gone.

The only change I would make is to use tinfoil instead of greasing the pan. The bars seemed a tad to greasy. I would also add peanut butter chips.

Have you ever made a cookie into a bar?
