I must be on a Girl Scout cookie kick right now, because that’s all I’m thinking about. Last week I shared this jaw dropping Samoa Pull-Apart Bread, and today… Samoa Truffles!!
All the chewy caramel and coconut flavor from a Samoa cookie wrapped up in a thick layer of chocolate!
Bonus – it’s only 4 ingredients!!
You guys, these truffles are so easy, even my 3 year old was helping me put them together.
To be honest, I started making this caramel and toasted coconut combination last week when I was making the pull-apart bread. I imagined it sitting gloriously on top of the bread, but the logistics of it didn’t work out. The caramel mixture was too thick and the bread was too soft and tender.
I saved the caramel by wrapping it up in wax paper and storing it in a zip close bag. I had big plans for it.
When cooled it was the perfect consistency to roll into little balls.
Then I dunked them in chocolate… twice.
My three year old sat nearby and would plop one caramel ball after another into the chocolate. I would roll it around and place it back onto the wax paper and then she would gingerly sprinkle each with a little toasted coconut.
Being the daughter of a food blogger can be difficult at times, I’m sure. I’m pretty insistent on my kids waiting until I am done photographing the food before they can have any. Can you imagine how my 3 year old was feeling? With all this chocolate and caramel and coconut, she was super eager to take a bite.
But there she was, patiently helping and waiting. I was so proud of her.
Then, once the photos were taken, I placed a small truffle in her open hands and told her how proud of her I was, and how grateful I was for her to help me make them. Her eyes got big with excitement and pride. She nibbled on that little truffle and savored each and every bite for at least 5 minutes.
Proud mom moment.
As for the taste of these Samoa Truffles… super proud food blogger moment. They taste just like the cookie, with a chewy and nutty texture that’s covered in glorious chocolate.
You seriously can’t stop at just one.
