Girl Scout Cookies...Yuuuuummmmm

So last month was the month of the Girl Scout cookie!  And this week is National Girl Scout week.  So my question is, do you have any cookies left?  Me? No, I don't!  Each year it's one box of Thin Mints and one box of Samoas, which I think are now called Carmel Delights.  It doesn't matter what you call them, they are simply heaven in a box!  And each year, I miss those dang cookies come March.

That is until I found this crazy recipe for Somoa Popcorn and had to give it a whirl.  The results:

I heart Samoa popcorn
If you love Samoa cookies as much as I do, you'll probably be making this tonight.  So if you do, here are my three suggestions:

1.  You'll need to toast a bit of coconut for this recipe.  Mine toasted in half the time that the recipe called for so keep an eye on it!
2. The recipe calls for several bags of microwave popcorn. I'm not a microwave popcorn kinda gal...too much packaging and all.  So I stove popped mine and it was fine, I have to assume air popping it would be as well.
3.  When making homemade caramel, and you will for this fabulous deliciousness, it is hot!  Don't touch it...not that I've had any experience with this {insert winky face here}, but I'm just sayin'.

And right about now you're thinking, "where the heck is the upcycled bit?"  Glad you asked!  Here's my bracelet made from a Samoa box:

So what's your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

  1. It is one box of Thin Mints, one box of Samoas, and one box of Tagalongs. They usually last about 3 days. I box a day! I will have to give that popcorn a try! It looks delicious! Life to the full, Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle
