Samoa Cookie Dip

Samoa Cookie Dip 9

Well…my mouth is watering.

Here is a fact you may not have known about me. I am ob-sessssed with Caramel deLites. Yes, I still want to call them that. And so I’m going to. I’m so obsessed that when we buy boxes I hide them in cabinets so nobody else can eat them. #hoarderandnotashamed. But then I forget to eat them. My blood boils just thinking about the time I had to throw out a box of stale Caramel deLites. I can’t even talk about it.

It’s probably no surprise that a Samoa Cookie Dip was appealing to me. And the best part is we can make this dip despite our stash of Girl Scout Cookies running out in only days. Okay…minutes. All the flavors that I love in a Caramel deLite are here…chocolate, caramel, coconut and cookie crunch. Now add cream cheese to the mix and we’ve crossed the border to Crazy Town. This dip is craaazzzzyyy good. Like the best dip I’ve ever tasted good. I’m being completely serious too. And let’s not forget my childhood favorite, Salerno Butter Cookies. Hummina-hummina-hummina. Does anybody remember that Friends episode? Monica talking about Mark. No…just me? Well the way Monica regarded Mark is the way I feel about this Dip.

All in all this dip is may-jah. You’ve got to try it.

*Note: the original recipe called for 8 tablespoons butter. We cut it down to 4 tablespoons. The next time we make it (and there will be lots of next times) we will either cut it down further or eliminate it.
