apple ring samoas (with peanut butter)

apple ring samoas | my skinny sweet tooth

This is a slight naughtier version of my heathy apple rings. Although both equally delicious, sometimes that little devil on the shoulder shouts a lot louder than the good guy. Gosh, he’s so annoying. But as my journey gets farther and farther along, that voice is becoming distant. It seems there’s a new guy in the mix: the “best of both worlds” guy. I like him. We get along quite well ๐Ÿ˜‰

So as I’m staring at my husbands Girl Scout cookie stash (the samoas!), the “best of both worlds” guy and I come up with this. It’s got the crunch of a cookie, and classic taste of a samoa. (I even added peanut butter! oh my!) However, these are a little messier, but that’s just more fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s another break down for you!

5 samoa girl scout cookies: 10pp
5 apple ring samoas (w/ pb): 4pp

Umm โ€ฆ yes. Plus, the apple rings are so much bigger. And 99% of the time, bigger is better. The other 1% are my hips; definitely bigger is not better here …


apple ring samoas:
Yeilds: 5 or so apple rings
Serving Size: 5 or so apple rings
Points Per Serving: 4pp

1 large apple
2T powdered peanut butter (PB2), prepared
1/2 serving of brownie batter dip*
1-2T caramel (I use 0pp Walden Farms Caramel Dip)
1t shredded coconut

*mix 16g Trader Joes Reduced Guilt Brownie mix, a dash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and 1t truwhip light (whipped topping). You could also use Walden Farms Chocolate Sauce/Dip for even lower points, butย Iย really enjoy the flavor of the brownie dip ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ‹…Start by coring the apple and slicing into rings (at least 5).
โ‹…Top each ring with PB2.
โ‹…Warm up the caramel to a pourable consistency.
โ‹…Drizzle on the brownie batter and caramel.
โ‹…Top with coconut.

    I’ve never tried samoas, we don’t have them here.. We don’t have any Girl Scout cookies, as we don’t have Girl Scouts. haha. But it looks like I’m missing out ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll try this.

      Oh gosh they’re so good! A samoa is made up of a sugar/shortbread cookie topped with caramel, toasted coconut, and chocolate. These definitely satisfy that craving and I can’t wait to make them again ๐Ÿ™‚
