|Samoa Kiss Candy|
I found a great recipe for Girl Scout Samoas,(Grouprecipes samoa cookies)doubled the caramel, to make it more like a candy. Then topped them with baking drops.
3/4cup real butter
1cup corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
a bag of coconut-toasted
Baking drops- they're about the size of a Hersey's kiss, but you don't have to remove any foil.
Spread the coconut on two cookie sheets, bake at 350*F. until golden, stirring often. Cool.
In a heavy bottomed pot, melt the butter over a medium/low heat.
Add the sugar and corn syrup, stirring often, bring to a boil, and cook a full 3 minutes.
Add the condensed milk, stirring constantly. Clip a candy thermometer to the pan.
Cook until it reaches about 230*F, stirring often. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and coconut.
Let it cool about 5-minutes, then drop 1Tbl. of the candy onto waxed paper and press a baking drop into the center. Continue the same way, for the rest of the candy.
Let them cool 20-minutes, and reshape by pressing in, on the edges, that have spread when it was hot.
