Samoas Apple Salad

…ould be turned “Girl Scout Themed,” I ran across that Snickers Apple Salad recipe, and realized that Samoas would make an absolutely amazing substitute for the Snickers! I know I’m always right, but sometimes I surprise my self at HOW right I am. (My husband is somewhere fighting the unexplainable urge to roll his eyes right now.) This salad is so great. So easy. And SO Samoas! And I do mean so samoas. As in: an entire box. I…

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  (after the toffee doodle dip, the monster cookie dough dip, and the red velvet cake batter dip). And because I haven’t done a Samoas recipe yet this week…

Samoas Oatmeal

…ut series, and devoted an entire week to recipes inspired by each of my three favorite girl scout cookies– Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs. And, frankly, there just were not enough days in Samoas week. I could have gone on creating Samoas recipes for-ev-er.  Is it even possible to get “enough” caramel, chocolate, a coconut into any dessert? I submit that it is not. Which is why I had to make Samoas into breakfast. We neede…

Samoas Pudding Mousse

…e end, I decided that each of my three favorite cookies were going to need their own week :) Welcome to week 1: Samoas!! And since pudding mousse is kind of my thang, and since I’ve just barely started posting it on the blog– I thought it would be a great way to start things up! Samoas Pudding Mousse. I made this one for the first time a couple of years ago, and it’s been my hands down favorite this whole time. Hope you enjo…

Samoas Fudge

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…

Fudge Mint Magic Cookie Bars

I think everyone has a different name for magic cookie bars– I grew up calling them 7 layer bars, but I’ve heard several variations along the way. To see an original version, click here (but come back!). I was excited to try a Thin Mint version, but wasn’t totally sure how to approach it without the coconut and the pecans– that seemed a little empty. And even after I had made them, and took a bite fresh out of the o…

Tagalong Popcorn

I know I’m not getting any originality points for this recipe (as the existence of Thin Mints Popcorn and Samoas Popcorn has been pretty heavily documented on Pinterest lately)– but I just couldn’t resist doing a dessert popcorn recipe for my Girl Scout Cookies series. And Tagalongs totally fit the bill! Blasphemous as this sounds: there are certain Peanut Butter and Chocolate foods that I’m not in love with, bec…

Thin Mint Cookie Dough Truffles

I know there are lots of thin mint truffles out there right now. But these ain’t them. Don’t get me wrong– I’m not hating on them. They’re outrageously good. (Like these, at Creative Live) But I really wanted to make the recipes for this series a little different– stuff you, hopefully, haven’t seen too often (or at all) before. I literally used the recipe for home made thin mint cookies (plus a…

So without further ado, let’s talk all about ME for a minute… (like you don’t get that enough over here, right? ) For the most part, I’m a rule follower. I wouldn’t say this is a characteristic of mine that’s been etched in stone, but just sp…
