What do you do when you're craving Samoa Cookies but there's not a girl scout in site? Make this copycat girlscout cookie recipe at home! They may look different, but these Coconut Kiss Cookies have all the key flavors!


For the cookie:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

For the topping:

  • 48 Hershey kisses
  • 1 cup sweeteened shredded coconut, toasted
  • ¼ cup milk chocolate chips (or bar), melted
  • ½ cup caramel topping
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour


  1. In large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together several minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract. Add in the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Using hands, pinch off large tablespoons of dough. Press into tart pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Immediately press a hershey kiss into center. Allow to cool in pan 5 minutes before removing. I use non-stick tart pans, if yours tend to stick spray with baking spray first.
  3. In small bowl, mix caramel topping with flour. Set aside.
  4. When cookies are cool, first drizzle with caramel sauce. Sprinkle toasted coconut onto the caramel, pressing lightly. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Allow to set.


  • Use a non-stick mini tart pan if possible. If your tart pan isn't non-stick, spray it with baking spray before adding the cookie dough.
  • Can you make these without a tart pan? Yes! A mini muffin pan is a perfect substitute.
  • Caramel sauce: I used Hershey's caramel topping for the caramel sauce. Any kind of caramel you'd drizzle on an ice cream sundae will work.
  • Store cookies in airtight container in refrigerator or room temperature. We love these chilled!
  • Freeze cookies in airtight container with parchment paper between layers.
