Samoa Cookie Dough Bark

 

Please allow me to interrupt my previously planned recipe for today (Chocolate Bar Blondies) for this no-bake, out of this world, you MUST make it now treat.

…Samoa Cookie Dough Bark…

Samoa Cookie Dough Bark You are familiar with Samoa Girl Scout cookies, right? I haven’t had one in years but when I sampled my cookie dough bark, the first thing my taste buds screamed was:

Oh my, I think you just made a Samoa only in cookie dough bark form!

Taste buds never forget. Sort of like how they say elephants never forget? Elephants and taste buds. They know their stuff. samoa cookie dough bark I don’t even know how this magical recipe happened. WAIT… Yes I do. I saw this recipe for Cookie Dough Chocolate Bark and wanted to make it immediately, realizing that I even had the eggless cookie dough in my freezer (doesn’t everyone have cookie dough on reserve?). But, my creative side was nagging me to do something different so I came up with a new type of cookie dough instead, one that would be fun to share with you. A cookie dough that is both eggless and sinful yet slightly, and I mean slightly, on the “healthier” side. I subbed the usual flour with ground oats (oat flour), coconut oil for butter, made use of peanut butter, some sugar and mini chocolate chips. It’s that slight hint of coconut flavor, paired with the chocolate chips and mushy yet delicate texture of the dough all in one bite with the chocolately bark which creates that Samoa effect. It’s so good it should be illegal. Seriously. It was way too easy to create this recipe which, I was told by my taste-testers, is the best treat I have EVER made in my entire baking life. So, once you mix up your sinful dough, all you have to do is melt your chocolate and then spread it around on a nonstick cookie baking sheet. Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets I lined my normal cookie sheet with the parchment paper to make things super easy in terms of clean up and bark removal. I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips for the bark in the microwave. Nothing fancy going on here. There is no patience for double boilers in this house. melted chocolate Use any chocolate you wish really, I just don’t recommend the baking melts you find in the candy making aisle at your local craft store. Gross. Once you spread the melted chocolate on the baking sheet, just press your cookie dough all over it. Samoa-Cookie-Dough-Bark Let it harden, break it apart and you are DONE. Samoa Cookie Dough Bark And if this bark isn’t exciting enough, just wait to see what else I created with the same ingredients. samoa cookie dough cups So easy I swear. And the taste? My goodness. I promise we will talk about these cups later this week. samoa cookie dough bark

      I think it’s fine to make it all. Give the goodies as gifts! And yes, this is on the “healthier” side I think, only in that the ingedients are minimal and make use of coconut oil and oat flour. It’s just so good you will find it sinful.

    Your telling me everyone has cookie dough on reserve? Hmm.. I think I need to hop on this wagon & join y’all. I feel a bit out of place that I do not 🙁

    Confession: I’ve never actually had a Girl Scouts cookie — I’m pretty sure they’re not allergy friendly for me. This bark, though?! Omg I could get down and funky with it. And I think a better question would be what kind of chocolate I DON’T have in my pantry… I could probably open my own shop with my current inventory 😆

      So, like, I get it with the allergies and all but once again, feel bad that you never had one. I wonder if some are now made in a nut free facility. I am not really up to date on the Girl Scout cookies but ugh, they were always so good!

    I like the thin mints and the lemon ones but Samoas are awesome though where is the shredded coconut in yours? I actually don’t like coconut but in samoas they are good.

    THe peanut butter ones are good to (tag-a-longs or do-si-dos….can’t remember) just yum!

    Those look AMAZING! I made chocolate covered fresh cranberries yesterday, so I feel like I need to finish those before I make any more sweets, but these might have to be the next recipe I try.

    Confession #1: I’ve never had any kind of Girl Scout cookies solely because girl scouts don’t sell cookies over here.
    Confession #2: The main reason I bake cookies is to eat the dough. Meaning I need to pawn off baked goods to coworkers and friends so I can whip up another batch of dough.
    Confession #3: My stash of chocolate bars is ridiculous. Only dark kinds, though. I’m not a fan of milk or white kinds.
    Okay, enough with the confessions. You’re a genius to combine cookie dough and chocolate. Chocolate bark isn’t really a thing over here but I honestly wonder why.
