Recipe for Samoas Rice Krispies | Mommy Evolution (1)

Last year, my husband greeted aGirl Scout at our door and ordered a couple of boxes but not my beloved Samoas.

As he was closing the door, I casually asked what he ordered.

And when we realized what we had missed ordering, he opened the door, yelling, “Girl Scout girl! Girl Scout girl!”

MAKE THE REST!

9. In a double boiler, melt the solid shortening.

10. Add the chocolate melts and stir occasionally, until melted.

11. Pour the melted chocolate into a microwave safe bowl that will make it easier to dip the bars.

12. Dip each Rice Krispies bar half way into the melted chocolate, covering the bottom of each bar.

Place on wax-covered covered cookie sheet (bottom side up) and chill for 10 minutes to allow chocolate to “set.”

Set aside remaining melted chocolate for later.

13. Toast the coconut in the oven or on the stovetop.

I just toasted mine on the stove top in a frying pan over medium heat until it browned- takes about 5 minutes.

14. Flip the bars over and press the toasted coconut into the top of the bars. Set aside any remaining coconut.
