2. What if I can’t find the Girl Scout Samoa cookies? No problem! There are a few other brands you can use that taste the same. Keebler Coconut Dreams are the same, Clover Valley (Dollar General label) Coconut Fudge and Caramel Cookies, Aldi’s Benton’s Caramel Coconut Fudge Cookies, Great Value (Walmart label) Caramel Coconut & Fudge and the Food Lion Fudge Drizzled Caramel Coconut Cookies.
3. How do I toast shredded coconut? To toast shredded coconut, place shredded coconut in a skillet on the stove top and set the heat to medium. Heat and toss coconut until toasty and brown. Don’t look away though because it can quickly go from toasted to burnt.
