Carmel DeLites

Just now as my kids are looking over my shoulder, my 5-year-old saw the pictures and put on her cookie-monster voice and boomed: MAKE MORE OF THOSE COOKIES!!  I’ll have to agree – these were yummy!  I don’t really like too many boughten cookies – but Carmel DeLites are unbelieveably delicious – Girls Scouts don’t have to seek me, I look for them.  So when I saw this recipe at Welcome to the Good Life I had to run out and buy some coconut and carmels asquick as I could.  She found the recipe at Baking Bites – – check out both sites for different pictures.  And on to my pictures:
It called for using a knife (too hard) or a large straw (didn’t have) to cut the inner circles – I dug through my kitchen for something circle-shaped and ended up using a frosting tip.
I’ve never toasted coconut before, but it wasn’t hard – just spread it out and stir it every few minutes – I baked it for 20 minutes but it was probably a couple of minutes too long.
I don’t have any pics of the spreading carmel-coconut goo on the tops of the cookies – it was a sticky mess, and I had to reheat it a couple of times.  Then after I spread the top goo on, let it cool.
I think I rolled my cookie part a little to thin, so make yours thicker than pictured below.  I took the cookie and dipped it directly in the melted chocolate chips – seemed easier than trying to spread chocolate with a knife. 
Then set it chocolate-side down on wax paper to make the bottom smooth without sticking to a surface.  Then take your leftover chocolate and spoon it into a plastic bag – cut the corners and then drizzle chocolate lines across the top – I think my corner cut was a little too big because my lines are thick – oh well. 
Then, with children hoovering, I needed to speed up the cooling/chocolate hardening process, so I stuck them in the freezer for a few minutes.  And then passed them around – YUm!
When my toddler saw the fun he was missing, he came running into the kitchen carrying a stool – I grabbed the camera just in time to capture him sneaking his share:
So do you need to bring treats to something this weekend?  Try these!!  They’re a little time consuming, but not hard – you can do it!  If you make them, let me know what you think…

    thank you thank you! These are my absolute favorite cookies ever (not just favorite girl scout cookies) I hate that you can only get them once a year, and not at all where I live. Oh, and too big snip in the bag = more chocolate on the cookie, so you’re fine!
