Guest Recipe: Homemade Caramel deLites/Samoas

Spoon Fork Bacon has done something absolutely genius: figured out the recipes for Girl Scout cookies.

They've been generous enough to share some of them with us (here's one for Thin Mints), and below we have one of our all-time favorites: Samoas.

These seem to have different names in different parts of the country, but they're good everywhere. Including in your own kitchen. Enjoy!
