Samoa Cookies No Bake

Ingredients List

  • Toppings:
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut for toasting
  • 1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp cream
  • For the cookies:
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 box instant butterscotch pudding (4 serving size)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

 Directions

Toppings:
To toast coconut: Place coconut in a small, dry pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally (stir more frequently towards the end), until coconut is light golden brown. Set aside.
To prepare drizzle: In a small bowl, melt together chocolate, butter and cream. I microwaved mine at 50% power for 25 seconds. Pour chocolate into a Ziploc bag to use for drizzle later.

Cookies:
In a large pot, bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil over medium-high, stirring often. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Add in the pudding mix, oats and coconut and stir until combined.
Scoop onto wax-paper lined cookie sheets. Snip a tiny piece of the bag’s corner and drizzle with melted chocolate. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
Let set at room temperature for 2-3 hours, uncovered. Plate in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can store them at room temperature for a few days, but I like them cold as they are a little firmer.
