Girl Scout Samoas

     The Cookie Gods must be smiling down upon me because I just created a piece of heaven in my kitchen !!!  These Girls Scout Samoas are the best cookie I have EVER eaten, ... those little girls are going to be furious about my knock off cookie ... so don't tell them !!!  The best part is that they are only 224 calories, 7g net carbs and 21g protein!  ... I think I deserve a special badge on a green sash ...

1 Vanilla Almond Quest Bar
1 teaspoon Caramel ( note~ Caramel instructions below)
20 Lily's Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon reduced fat Shredded Coconut

     To make a batch of simple Caramel, soak 1 Medjool Date in water for 30 minutes, drain and remove pit.  Blend in processor with 1 Tablespoons Cashews, 1 Tablespoon reduced fat Shredded Coconut, and 1-2 Tablespoons Water til smooth, store in fridge.  Now for the cookies, unwrap Quest bar and divide into 4 equal parts.  Microwave on Pam sprayed plate for 10 seconds, remove and shape into circles with hole in the middle.  Bake the 4 cookies for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove and while still warm press down slightly so the hole is very small.  Top each cookie with a 1/4 teaspoons Caramel, then press 5 Chocolate Chips into each cookie and finish by sprinkling a 1/4 teaspoon Coconut on top of each cookie to finish it off!  These are the best cookies I have EVER eaten, perfectly soft and chewy with all the bite of a good Almond, Caramel, Chocolate and Coconut mouthful a girl could ever dream of !!!  Enjoy  ;)
