Girl Scout Samoa Brownie Recipe

Girl Scout Samoa Brownies

How many of you love Girl Scout cookies? I will freely admit, I am a huge fan of Samoa cookies. While I may not be pleased about how the price gets higher each year, they are still a guilty pleasure, especially after doing our taxes. My problem, however, is that the cookies never seem to last in our house. It seems that an entire box is gone without 5 minutes! While they are tasty, this isn’t good for our stomachs or wallets. In other words, we had to find a way to make the box last longer and still make it a treat that perks us up. Luckily, I found the perfect solution -brownies.

As someone who has always been a big fan of brownies, this brings eating a brownie to a whole new level.  Not only are they tasty, but pretty easy to make too. While they may not be the cheapest brownies in the world, they are worth it when it comes to overall flavor and if you really want to impress others while you are entertaining. In this household, however, one brownie seems a lot less guilty inducing eating an entire box of Girl Scout Cookies!

    These look absolutely wonderful!! I’m not so sure that the cookies would even last long enough to make it into the brownies hah! As soon as the box is opened, they’re already in someone’s mouth!

    Those look delicious and not too complicated to make. And the Samoa cookies are my fave. But we used to call them Carmel delights. Do they still call them that?

    Thanks for the delicious Recipe on Girl Scout Samoa Brownie! WOW These sound wonderful! You still have to purchase a box of the Girl Scout Cookies to make this recipe! I haven’t purchased a box of the Girl Scout Cookies in at least 2 years. I bet they are most likely over $4 by now! Anyway, these brownies seem easy enough to make and my family loves brownies! I know that my grocery store sells their store brand of the different Girl Scout Cookies and I think the Samoa is one of them. Wonder if this recipe would work with them? I saved your recipe so that I can give them a try! I don’t think Girl Scout Cookies are on sale now, so I’ll have to try my grocery store’s brand. Thanks so much for sharing this Delicious Recipe with all of us! They sure sound YUMMY!!! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

    This would be great as either a rectangular one-sheet or a round, large mall-cookie type. I know this would taste great with vanilla ice cream!
