Faux Samoa Girl Scout Cookies

Yields about 3 dozen

1 pkg. Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix (plus ingredients needed on the package directions)

1 can dulce de leche

10 oz. sweetened flaked coconut

1/2 c. chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix up the sugar cookie mix according to package directions (for rolled cookies). Roll out cookie dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut into circles. Place cookies on an ungreased baking sheet.

In a separate bowl, combine dulce de leche and coconut. If it is hard to stir, pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds to loosen the dulce de leche up.

Place a teaspoonful of the caramel-coconut mixture on top of each cookie. Wet your fingers and gently press the caramel-coconut mixture around the top of the cookie.

Bake cookies at the temperature and time indicated on the back of the cookie mix package.

When the cookies have finished baking, remove from pan. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 10 seconds. Drizzle the melted chocolate over each cookie.

Serve and enjoy!
