Don’t you love playing around with s’mores combinations?? I mean it’s the simplest thing: graham crackers, chocolate, melty marshmallow. Since all the ingredients are so basic, its so easy to come up with crazy creations! Here are coconut cookie & caramel s’mores or samoa s’mores!
Ooey, gooey marshmallow, caramel filled chocolate bar, and toasted coconut sandwiched inside these chewy, delicious Coconut Almond Butter Cookies! Its a messy bite! But if its not messy, you’re probably not eating a good s’more! Its based off the flavors of the one of favorite Girl Scout cookies the samoas: which is a shortbread cookie, layered with caramel, shredded coconut and drizzled with dark chocolate.
First off, these coconut almond butter cookies are a household favorite! We just love the chewy coconut texture, it almost reminds me of a really good chewy oatmeal cookie, except there’s no oatmeal! The texture is just from the shredded coconut! Another perk for these cookies is that they’re vegan so its kinda of a healthy indulgence! (And also it’s not as guilty to taste the cookie dough either!)
I like to make the cookies the day before. Knowing that at least a few (or even half!) of the batch will not make it into the s’mores phase. But when we do manage to save a few for the s’mores, boy are we glad!
They have such a great coconut flavor from the coconut oil and shredded coconut that’s inside the cookie and topped inside the s’more! The dark chocolate and caramel provide that creamy sweetness and the warm, ooey, gooey marshmallow puts it over the top!
