I just had my girl scout cookies delivered to me. Oh.em.gee. I am started to realize that becoming pregnant in September isn’t the best idea. You hit Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Girl Scout Cookie Season. Oh and don’t forget the Cadberry Easter Eggs. I have my little girl in June. Awesome. Just in time for swimsuit season. 😉

As soon as I got my cookies delivered to me I started thinking of all of the yummy things that I could make. But since I am obsessed with cheesecake, I knew I wanted to make a Samoas Cheesecake. I started to think of all of the yummy ways to make them, and what kind of crust I wanted to have. Hello! A Samoas cookie for the crust! Easy and delicious. Cookies can make the best crusts in individual cheesecakes and make it so much easier to just drop the cookie in the liner. I topped it with some toasted coconut and drizzled it with caramel and chocolate. One bit into this creamy and amazing cheesecake and I was in heaven!

Ingredients

  • 12 Samoas Cookies store bought is also fine
  • 2 blocks cream cheese 8 oz., softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut flakes toasted
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips melted
  • 15 caramel squares or caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a muffin tin with liners. (I was able to get 12-14 mini cheesecakes. If you only want 6, half the recipe.) Place a samoas cookie into the bottom of each liner.
  2. Beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs until combined. Spoon the batter over the samoas cookies about 3/4 full just below the rim of the liner.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes until they are set. Let cool completely and store in the refrigerator until serving.
  4. Top the cheesecakes with about 1 T of the toasted coconut. If you are using the caramel squares for the drizzle, melt in the microwave with 1 T of your heavy whipped cream 30 seconds at a time and stirring until smooth. The caramel squares can tend to be thicker, so you can also drizzle with the caramel ice cream topping. Drizzle with the melted chocolate and enjoy!
