In case you missed my last two posts (#1 and #2), you’ve landed smack dab in the middle of Samoas Week here at Something Swanky! Week 1 of 3 weeks dedicated to all things Girl Scout Cookie-inspired.
This fudge is awesome. I haven’t been able to stop eating it.
There are a couple of different routes you could go with the cookie crust…
I took the easy way out and used crushed up shortbread cookies. But I think it would taste great if you baked your own shortbread into the bottom of the pan, and then poured the fudge over that.
I’d recommend the shortbread I used in this recipe.
Also, take note: my measurements for caramel, cookies, and coconut are pretty approximate. Use however much you like of each based on your personal preferences!
- 3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 c. toasted coconut
- 1- 1/12 sleeves shortbread cookies, crushed
- 2 tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 package kraft caramels, melted according to directions on package (adding additional 2 tablespoons of water)
- In a zip top bag, “mush” together the crushed cookies and the butter until incorporated. Press into the bottom of a lined 9×9 baking dish and set aside.
- Over LOW heat, mix the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk until melted and smooth (about 10 minutes).
- Pour the fudge over the cookie crust. Spread/press flat into the baking dish with a rubber spatula.
- Pour the melted caramel over the fudge. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and press into caramel.
- Let cool for 3-4 hours until firm. Refrigerate to speed up the process.
