If you hadn’t noticed from our Thin Mint Ice Cream, I have a thing for Girl Scout cookies. And while Thin Mints are definitely more “my” cookie, Will particularly enjoys Samoas. Because of this, it will come as no surprise that we made some Samoas ice cream! Similar to the Thin Mint recipe, we pretty much made our normal recipe (except with brown sugar) and added in the crushed cookies at the end. I added a bit of caramel sauce in a few minutes before the cookie to give it some extra flavor, but I would imagine that this is not essential! Personally, I prefer the Thin Mint ice cream over the Samoas, but it certainly still made for a cold, tasty treat! Also, these ice cream recipes are extremely efficient ways of getting Girl Scout cookies out of the house quicker!

Samoas Ice Cream (serves 6-8)
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup brown sugar, separated
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup 2% milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp caramel sauce
2/3 box of Samoas, crushed

Stir egg yolks and 1/4 cup brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar and stir until fluffy again. Then add heavy cream, milk and vanilla, combining well. Refrigerate for at least two hours. Then make ice cream according to manufacturers instructions, allowing to churn for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes have passed, drizzle in caramel sauce and then add Samoas slowly, allowing to chunks to work their way through the ice cream. Churn for another 2 minutes, then remove to freeze and enjoy!
