Somoas are also known as Caramel deLites, and they are one of the most popular Girl Scout Cookies. The cookie has a buttery and crumbly texture that is perfect with the toppings. I couldn’t count how many pieces I had eaten when I made this at home as it’s so good, but I know I’ve eaten much more than I should have and only left a few pieces for everyone.

Step 5:

After 30 minutes, roll out the cookie dough and cut out your cookies. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put inside the oven and bake for about 10 to 13 minutes at 350F. Once done baking, set them aside to cool.

Step 6:

Add the caramel, salt, heavy cream, and vanilla in a heatproof bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Save 1/4 cup of the melted caramel, then add the remaining to the toasted coconut.

Step 7:

Once the cookie is cool enough to touch, spread the reserved caramel on top, then add a layer of the caramel coconut.
