Chocolate, Caramel, Coconut Fudge (aka Samoa Fudge)

This fudge is my twist on a girl scout cookie. My FAVORITE of all girl scout cookies.

Samoas. Or Caramel deLites.

That’s right – once you know how to make vanilla fudge, you can even make it taste like a cookie!

I used coconut pudding mix to give the fudge a creamy coconut and white chocolate flavor. I added in some caramel and swirled it through the fudge. Then, topped it with chocolate and toasted coconut to give the appearance of the Samoa cookie.

You’re going to love this one!!! If you don’t, I will gladly accept all leftovers.

Chocolate, Caramel, Coconut Fudge (aka Samoa Fudge)


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pkg (11oz) white chocolate morsels
  • 1 pkg (3oz) coconut cream JELL-O pudding mix
  • 1 jar (7oz) marshmallow fluff
  • 2 cup Kraft caramel bits
  • 1 tsp heavy cream
  • ¾ cup semi sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup toasted coconut


  1. Toast coconut according to package directions. I use sweetened coconut flakes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Melt caramel bits with 1 tsp heavy cream in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat butter, cream, sugar ans alt on medium high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring contantly. When it begins to boil, set timer for about 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
  4. Remove from heat. Pour into a mixing bowl and using a stand mixer whisk together the pudding mix, white chocolate and marshmallow fluff until combined (and chocolate is smooth).
  5. Immediately pour into a parchment paper lined 13x9 baking dish.
  6. Pour caramel over top of fudge (it will be thick). Use a knife to spread and swirl it into the fudge (don't worry if the top of the fudge looks bumpy).
  7. Refrigerate fudge for 2-3 hours until set.
  8. Melt semi sweet morsels. Spread over set fudge and sprinkle generously with toasted coconut. Cut into bites and enjoy. Store in covered container in refrigerator.

  1. Samoas are my FAVORITE GS cookie. I may or may not have 3 boxes in my pantry :-S I love the big vein of caramelly goodness in the pictures!

  2. These look delicious, I love Samoas!

    I host a link party each Thursday – I would love to have you join and share this.

    Thanks for the great post!


  3. I love love love anything that tastes like Girl Scout cookies! Since you can’t buy those suckers year round (super sad face) I like to try different ways of making them myself, or similar items that taste like them, and I think this is just perfect! 🙂

    I would love it if you would link up at Martha Mondays, open now through Wednesday night!



  4. I can’t believe this has just happened. I think I need to go overdose on fudge now, and then stick a glob of somoa ice cream on top of this…yes, that sounds like a happy new year sort of thing to do!

  5. I love Girl Scout Cookie homemade stuff. I hate seeing recipes that include the actual cookies, just because I don’t have access to them, but this?! YES! Thank you. 🙂

  6. For a second I was over fudge after way too much at the holidays. Definitely back in the game now. I love this!

  7. Yum, yum, yum! Samoa’s are my fav too! I just found out today, we are a week away from Girl Scout cookies. Can’t wait, but this fudge might hold me over!

  8. This fudge is simply amazing, Aimee! Samoas are my FAVORITE Girl Scout cookie EVER. I can’t even buy boxes anymore because I am not trustworthy around them AT ALL. I will easily polish off a box in one sitting with no regard for calories, recipe ideas, or the fact that I’ll probably be sick after hehe. This fudge looks awesome and I want some!!
