I was once a girl scout, therefore my bastardization of the traditional Samoa cookie is justified.
Chocolate cookie base with caramel sauce and toasted coconut. Can be rolled or thumbprinted.

Note: I totally messed up this recipe when I made it, using a 2:1:1 ratio in SIZE instead of WEIGHT. This results in a sweet butter by-product, which is totally awesome on pancakes.
1/2 c sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c butter
plus 1/4 to 1/2 cup heavy cream to desired consistency
1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Chocolate cookie (adapted from the Buried Cherry Cookies recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
