Who run the world? Girls. And this year, the Girl Scouts are making it even easier for girls to learn awesome entrepreneurship and sales skills while making it even easier for us to get our cookie fix. Girl Scouts have personalized online stores where friends and relatives can purchase cookies and have them shipped to their door. Dangerous, right? With this new addition to Girl Scout Cookie season, I thought it would be only appropriate to make “millionaire bars” for the annual Girl Scout Cookie Recipe contest.
These bars are gooey, sticky, rich, and delicious. Seriously. You’ve got a Trefoil shortbread layer, dulce de luce, chocolate, and then Samoas chopped up on top. YUM.
Girl Scout Millionaire Bars
- 1 box of Trefoils
- 7 TBS butter, melted
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 additional TBS butter
- 1 box of Samoas
- Pulse the Trefoils in a blender or food processor until they’re even crumbs.
- Mix the melted butter and Trefoil crumbs together in a bowl until everything is wet.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of an 8″x8″ baking pan. Refrigerate until firm.
- Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a double boiler (a small saucepan on top of a larger saucepan full of simmering water). Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 60-90 minutes until it’s thick and caramel-colored. Pour on top of the shortbread mixture. Refrigerate until cold.
- Melt the chocolate chips until smooth. Stir in 1 TBS of butter until fully mixed. Pour on top of the caramel layer.
- Chop 1 box of Samoas coarsely and place the pieces on top of the chocolate layer, covering it completely.
- Let cool in the refrigerator, then cut and enjoy!
