Samoa Brownies

I have been on the biggest samoa kick lately! Everything about them is heaven. These brownies are nothing short of fabulous. The salted buttercream on top of these rich and fudgey brownies, topped with crisp toasted coconut, chocolate and gooey caramel all combine to perfection. These brownies seriously have it all and you would be crazy not to try them out!

    Salted buttercream. Have mercy! Nikki, these brownies have to be the best sounding brownies I’ve seen in a long time. I love Samoas anything. You won’t see me complaining about your samoas kick, my friend.

    I was thinking of making these this week. I was wondering if there is any reason you couldn’t use the caramel ice cream topping to drizzle on top instead of melting the caramel candies?

      Chef in Training says:

      It would just be runnier. THe caramel candies set up a bit more and keep there shape where as the ice cream topping with spread and not hold, but I am sure would still be delicious :)

    I made these last night and the flavor is great but my brownies are on the dry side. What did I do wrong! I don’t think I overcooked them as I watched them carefully. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Can I cheat and use a box of brownie mix to make this even easier? My mouth is watering just thinking about making these!

    Made these today. Found them a little sweet and had a terrible time cutting them after the caramel hardened. Is there a trick to this?
