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 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?
