No bake caramel delights are inspired by Girl Scout cookies. These are easy and lots of fun to make. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.
So this post is a little different than my normal posts. What I mean is I am following my own advice and making a change. I am trying out an app called Magisto that makes videos. I admit I loved how it did an intro video for Seduction in the Kitchen. Which you can see on my
I admit I loved how it did an intro video for Seduction in the Kitchen. Which you can see on my YouTube Channel. I think it turned out cool!
So I decided to try to use it to make a recipe video. I figure this, it gives me practice till I do the videos with me in it showing Fresh ingredient recipes. So let’s call these recipe teaser videos. They give a tease of the recipe because they are under a minute long. So what I am doing is from the suggestion of another food blogger, I am uploading the videos into the post, but also going to have them up on my
They give a tease of the recipe because they are under a minute long. So what I am doing is from the suggestion of another food blogger, I am uploading the videos into the post, but also going to have them up on my YouTube Channel as well. So are you ready to see this, my first recipe video for Seduction in the Kitchen? Here it is:
Be easy on me, it is a work in progress. I will admit I do need to find a tripod that can hold my iPhone to do these videos. It is hard to shoot, cook and hold a phone all at the same time! I can’t promise every recipe will have one these videos, only because I have taken photos
I can’t promise every recipe will have one these videos, only because I have taken photos of recipes that in my files and they were not done with a video idea in mind. However, with newer stuff I am doing, I can try to shoot these teasers for the posts.
Speaking of change, Snap Chat, I know a big thing right now, do you think I should have a Seduction in the Kitchen account on it? From what I heard, I think it like Instagram, but only it stays in the stream for a few seconds. So not sure if this is something to add to my social media accounts or not? I know a few other bloggers have added it, but I am still undecided about it.

I do love those Somoas cookies that the Girl Scouts sell. Yes right now they are selling the cookies, but what about when it is May and your craving that caramel, coconut cookie? The thought on how to make this goodie has been in the back of my head for a while. I know to make it, you need good shortbread. I thought I could do a bar, like a brownie. To be honest, of all the copycat recipes out there, to me it seemed like there is just a lot of steps in making these cookies.
One day it hit me, how about a no bake version. The idea came to me when I saw Nilla Wafers on sale at the store. I bounced the idea off of some friends, they all agreed that it sounded like it would be good, except I needed to find another cookie base, that Nilla Wafers they thought would not work. I thought maybe a Lorna Doone, so off to the store to see what I could find that was a good shortbread. There I spotted from Keebler Sandies. they are just regular shortbread cookies. I was familiar with Keebler’s Pecan Sandies, but not the plain Sandies. So I decided let’s get them and try them. They worked perfectly for my no bake caramel delights!
- 1 package of Keebler's Sandies Shortbread cookies
- 1 (12 ounce) package of chocolate chips
- 1 cup of shredded coconut (toasted)
- 1 cup of caramel topping
- In a bowl, combine the caramel topping and coconut together, set aside.
- On a wax paper lined tray, line up the shortbread cookies.
- Place a heaping spoonful of the coconut mixture on top the cookies, flatten the mixture out as best as you can.
- After you got the coconut mixture on the cookies, melt the chocolate chips. You can either use a double boiler to melt them till smooth, or melt in the microwave.
- One at a time pick up the cookies, and coat the underneath of them in the melted chocolate. Then place them back on the wax paper.
- After you got the bottoms coated with chocolate, drizzle the remaining chocolate over all the cookies.
- Let the cookies set up for about an hour, so that the chocolate can harden.
- After the chocolate is set, then ENJOY!
