Gluten Free Samoas Brownies are for the chocolate lovers out there. This literally might be the world's best dessert.
Everybody loves a good Girl Scout cookie. But for those who are gluten free, they’ve been off limits. While they do have two new gluten free flavors, the Samoas (or Caramel DeLites as you might call them) are not. And lets be real, if it’s not Samoas or Thin Mints, they’re not worth eating!
A couple years ago, I started making my gluten free Samoas Cookie Cups so my husband could get his Samoas fix. They’ve got a great shortbread crust, that ooey-gooey caramel with toasted coconut, and they’re dipped and drizzled with chocolate – just like the real thing only easier to make since I make them in mini muffin tins.
This year, I wanted to make something a little more chocolatey and thought that my fudgy gluten free brownies would be a great base. Boom, Gluten Free Samoas Brownies were born.
I made the coconut/caramel layer for these brownies a little bit gooier than the original because the gooier the brownie the better!
Like my cookie cups, I dipped the bottoms in chocolate because what’s are Samoas cookies without all the chocolate? And I gave these brownies an ultra dose of chocolate drizzle. NEVER ENOUGH CHOCOLATE.
Chocolate lovers, this is your recipe. Coconut lovers and caramel lovers, this is for you too. If you want to go for the ultimate decedent dessert, top these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and give them an extra drizzle of chocolate plus a drizzle of caramel sauce. You can even garnish them with some toasted coconut.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I feel like I’ve just created the world’s best dessert.
For best results, keep these brownies frozen and then defrost at room temperature before serving. And for reference, I’ve frozen, defrosted, and re-frozen these brownies a couple of times over the course of a month without any issues so if you defrost more than you need, don’t be afraid to re-freeze them.
