Forget about the cookies, this Samoa Pull-Apart Bread is where it’s at.
I’ve streamlined the process of making time-consuming pull-apart bread so it’s quicker and easier for you. You’re going to love this simple to follow recipe.
Ok, so Girl Scout cookies... they’re amaze balls. Trust me when I say that I’ve bought my fair share of Samoas and Thin Mints, but I can’t tell you how excited I am about this bread.
I’ve been dreaming about it for weeks.
I finally decided it was time to make it and boy was it super easy to put together.
I took step by step photos for you so you can see just how simple it really is. So that way instead of just gawking at this masterpiece, you’ll actually make it too.
First you’re going to want to toast up some coconut. You can do this in a skillet or in the oven. I prefer the skillet because I feel like it goes quicker.
Line the bottom of a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with parchment paper then lightly butter the sides of the pan. Set this aside for later.
Unroll a tube of canned pizza dough and press it into a 16″x12″ rectangle, then cut 4 equal size rectangles out of that.
Brush each of the strips with melted butter then sprinkle each with sugar, some of the toasted coconut, and some mini chocolate chips.
Place a strip of pizza dough (butter side down) on top of the strip you just sprinkled with all that goodness; then brush it with butter and repeat... sugar, coconut, chocolate chips, pizza dough, butter, sugar, etc. etc.
Take a sharp knife or pizza cutter and cut out 4″ x 2″ rectangles.
Make-a da pizza stacks!! ...ignore me.
Now you just need to butter each side, sprinkle with more sugar, toasted coconut, and a few chocolate chips and stack them on top of each other to make one mega stack.
It’s the leaning tower of pizza!
The key is to make sure you put butter and sugar between each slice of dough so that when it bakes up, it will fall apart into individual slices of goodness.
Repeat the process with another tube of pizza dough, then brush all sides with more butter… if you have any extra butter just drizzle it all over.
Butter is our friend.
I also had a few coconut and chocolate escapees when I was putting the bread together so I just sprinkled those on top. Place the bread in the oven and let it bake for 45 to 55 minutes.
When it’s a deep golden brown and looking mighty fine, take it out of the oven and admire how beautiful it is.
Let it cool slightly before taking it out of the pan.
The butter and sugar caramelize slightly on the bottom of the bread and create the most delicious crust that just melts in your mouth.
While it’s cooling, whip up some caramel. And by whip up, I mean unwrap some caramels and melt them over a double broiler with a little milk so you’re able to drizzle it all over the top. I’m easy like that.
Samoas are not complete without the caramel.
Or toasted coconut. So you’ll want to sprinkle a generous amount of toasted coconut on top of the caramel so it sticks on.
Then, just to make sure the coconut doesn’t go anywhere, give it a good drizzle of melted chocolate.
Now just pull off a slice and slip away into heavenly Samoa bliss.
Come to mama.
As you can see, it’s pretty simple to put together, yet you’re going to be praised by many for this gorgeous and decadent dessert.
