Everyone seems to have a favorite Girl Scout® cookie flavor. I’ve always been torn between Thin Mints and the Caramel and Coconut Cookies. They are both so delicious and so different. Sometimes I crave one. Sometimes the other.
For years and years, I hated the texture and the flavor of coconut. I had tried it as a young child and couldn’t stand it. I may have even cried a few tears at my 5th birthday party when I realized my adorable chocolate teddy bear cake was completely covered in shredded coconut.
But sometime in my early 30s, I decided to try a Girl Scout® Caramel & Coconut Cookie. I was pretty convinced they looked like one of the best things ever.
And it was. Ever since then, I’ve been eating coconut whenever I can get my hands on it.
So needless to say, I was super excited to find these baking mixes at my local Walmart and give them a try. I baked up a batch of the Thin Mints® Brownies and the Caramel and Coconut Blondies. They are so easy to make. A simple, easy to read (even without my reading glasses!) recipe is on the back of each box.
Just a few ingredients are needed. For the Thin Mints® Brownies, water , oil, and an egg are added. For the Caramel and Coconut Blondies you need melted butter, water, and an egg.
My brownies and blondies turned out outrageously delicious and disappeared in the blink of an eye. Very moist and flavorful.
I was a little partial to the Caramel and Coconut Blondies, but most people I shared them with said the Thin Mints® Brownies were their favorite so I’ve included that recipe below.
