These Samoa Cookie Sandwiches are very delicious. The caramel buttercream is sandwiched between two chewy sugar cookies dusted with toasted coconut and dipped in chocolate sauce.
I must confess that my personal life is not that intriguing. I work all day, come home, write on my blog, eat, sleep, and repeat. But every now and again, there’s a vacation or something spectacular going on. For example, you’ll see me on the road a lot this month, but that’s unusual.
I’m telling you this because my boyfriend and I went to a concert in LA (Hollywood, to be accurate, but it sounds pompous and I’m not that cool) on Friday night. The main act didn’t take the stage until after 10 p.m. and stayed until almost midnight. I yawned my way through the performance, but it was a fantastic venue and we had a terrific time.
By the time we were near to home, it was after 1am, and we went through the Jack in the Box drive-through against our better judgment. Following that, it was straight to bed. My sister says I’m 29 going on 59, but take that as you will, sister! Haha. Then I slept in until 11 a.m., which was fantastic. I’m going to win this weekend.
Then there are these Samoa Cookie Sandwiches, which make me feel like I’m still young and carefree. I suppose you could say the countdown has begun, and the big 3-0 is just a couple of months away.
These Samoa Cookie Sandwiches were initially featured on Chocolate Chocolate and More. It’s a buttery sugar cookie filled with caramel buttercream (I almost misspelled buttcream), with a coating of hot fudge sauce. Not to mention the lovely toasted coconut on the exterior. These may be a little sugary, but I’m #sorrynotsorry about it.
The cookie dough does need some chilling time. It’s inevitable, but I believe it’s one of the reasons these cookies are so chewy. When they are totally cooled, I apply hot fudge sauce on the backsides. I usually purchase Smuckers brand from my local grocery shop.
When it came time to prepare the frosting, I tweaked my ideal vanilla buttercream and added some store-bought caramel sauce. I piped the frosting onto the cookies using a 1M tip, starting from the outside and working my way in. I felt it was so lovely that I nearly contemplated leaving them alone!
Once the frosting is applied, carefully press another biscuit on top and roll it in a dish of toasted coconut. It will smear down those gorgeous borders, but I prefer to delicately massage the coconut into the icing with my hands.
You’re ready to take a large bite now that you’ve finished your Samoa Sandwich cookie. Don’t be bashful; no one is looking down on you.
I can’t believe I haven’t yet shared any Girl Scout treats this year. While Thin Mints will always be my fave, I have a little obsession with samoa sweets. I even compiled a list of 25 of my favorite samoa recipes from my pals.

- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 Large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- teaspoon baking soda
- teaspoon cream of tarter
- 1 cup coconut, toasted
- For the filling:
- cup unsalted butter
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp caramel sauce (like Hershey’s or Smuckers)
- 1 tablespoon milk
- pinch of salt
- cup hot fudge jar (such as Hersheys or Smuckers
- Cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until fully combined.
- Mix in the egg and vanilla essence. Combine egg and butter until fully combined.
- In a separate dish, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Slowly incorporate into batter and beat on low speed until thoroughly incorporated and dough forms.
- Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. If you neglect this step, your cookies will be as thin as pancakes!
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Scoop cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper using a medium cookie scoop (1-2 tbsp). Set them approximately 2 inches apart.
- 10-12 minutes at 350°F. Allow the cookie to rest for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool entirely.
- Toast the coconut on a second baking sheet lined with parchment paper while the cookies bake. While baking, keep an eye on the coconut. It takes less than ten minutes. Set aside on a paper plate to cool.
- For the frosting:
- Allow the butter to reach room temperature. Beat the butter with a stand mixer for several minutes, or until light and fluffy.
- Add one cup of powdered sugar at a time, gradually increasing the speed from low to medium. As the frosting thickens, add one tablespoon at a time of caramel sauce and milk. Increase the speed gradually to medium high; beat for several minutes, or until light and fluffy, adding a sprinkle of salt to temper the sweetness.
- Fill a big piping bag equipped with a 1M tip halfway. Place aside.
- To make the cookies, heat a jar of hot fudge for 30 seconds, or until it is spreadable but not hot to the touch. On the reverse of the cookies, spread a thin coating of hot fudge sauce.
- Pipe a layer of caramel frosting over the backside of one cookie using a 1M tip, beginning from the outside edge and working your way in.
- Top with a second hot fudge frosted biscuit. Roll the biscuit gently in the toasted coconut. You may also press the coconut into the icing with your fingertips.
- Store in an air-tight container.

Samoas are caramel-coated crisp cookies with toasted coconut sprinkles and dark chocolate stripes.
The Chipwich is an ice cream sandwich that consists of ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip biscuits and then rolled in chocolate chips.
With a delicate cookie crust, it expertly blends coconut, chocolate, and caramel. Samoas are the only Girl Scout cookies with a traditional chewy texture, and they’re also a little sticky when broken in half.Samoas
Why are there two Samoas?
The Samoan islands were divided into two groups at the start of the twentieth century. The eastern islands became US territory in 1904 and are currently known as American Samoa. After shifting from German to New Zealand authority in 1914, the western islands were known as Western Samoa (now just Samoa).
“Caramel deLites used to be called Samoas.” “They still are; I’ve seen some recently.” “No, it was changed to P.C.” “I thought they were called Samosas?” (This occurred.)
