Samoas Dip

Let me just begin this post by saying: Samoas Week may be the best thing I’ve ever done.
Ever.
ohhhhhhhhhh. emmmmmmmm. geeeeeeeeeeeee.
(omg)
This dip was incredible.
I almost didn’t make it. 
Because I felt like I was kind of beating a dead horse with the dip thing 
And because I haven’t done a Samoas recipe yet this week with actual Samoas in it 
(but don’t worry, those are coming!).
And because it kind of looks like the Samoas Pudding Mousse I did on Monday.
So I thought– maybe this dip isn’t the best idea.
So. Totally. Wrong.
It may very well be the best idea I’ve ever had.
And I’m being completely serious.
Samoas Dip

6018026
Ingredients:
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, cold
  • 8 oz. butter or margarine, cold
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 sleeve shortbread cookies (like Lorna Doone)
  • 1 cup (or more, easily) toasted coconut
  • 1 cup Caramel Hershey Kisses
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate for drizzling
Instructions:
  1. Using a paddle attachment, cream the butter and the cream cheese.
  2. Add in the cookies, and mix on high (so the cookies are good and crushed).
  3. Mix in the powdered sugar, until fully incorporated.
  4. Add Hershey kisses, and mix on high so they get broken up really well.
  5. Fold in the toasted coconut with a rubber spatula (I could have easily enjoyed way more coconut in this than 1 cup– but I was afraid of overdoing it).
  6. Serve with apples and graham crackers!

And since I know you don’t really believe me when I tell you to eat it with fruit…
You don’t mind if I double dip, do you?
…’cause I just did :)
Oh, and speaking of apples– be sure to be here on Thursday. 
I’m posting an extra recipe this week after my link party!!

  1. I wish I liked coconut but I’m affraid if I omitted it, it would lose the samoa-ness.

  2. Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookie. This dip looks amazing. I love your Girl Scout cookie series, I can’t to see what else you post.

  3. Oh wow…im speechless. I recently just made homemade somoas and they were awesome! I think the dip is the next step!

  4. I for one am SO glad you made this dip. I will be making it momentarily. It looks AMAZZZZZZZZING!!!! :)

  5. I don’t know whether to scream at you, “woman, stop this samoas madness!” or buy you a pedicure and an amazing spa day for your genius samoa-related creations and be thankful the world has a mind like yours. Probably a little bit of both, but for sure the last one :)

  6. I can’t get enough really. I’m jealous of your creative food mind! I love all YOUR dip recipes. :)

  7. YUM! YUM YUM!!!

  8. Samoas, yum, yum, I hate that they only put 15 in a box. I never share them. Maybe, I’ll share some of this dip, yeah, I might be able to do that (if I make a double batch!)

  9. OMG–Ashton, this might just be the best idea you’ve ever had.

  19. This was amazing!!!! I am anticipating lots of people asking for this recipe when I bring it tomorrow to Easter dinner. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

  20. Looks so yummy but do they sell already toasted coconut?

  21. Do they sell already toasted coconut?

    • I don’t think so– but I wish they would! I usually just toast the coconut over the stove on low. I know lots of people who just do it in the oven too. If you need step by step instructions just google it– you’ll find loads!

    In my part of the country, Milwaukee, WI…they call these kind of Girl Scout cookies Carmel Delites. I don’t quite understand why they don’t have a universal name. Regardless, this recipe looks fantastic! Can’t wait to try it!

  23. Corinne C. says:

  24. I’m almost thinking nix the Hershey’s and add dulche de leche I’ll make it both ways I think!
