If you’re a college student like me, you know the frustration of girl scout cookie season. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like the sale period doesn’t last long enough and there’s the fact that they only take cash. Being that I don’t make tips and am too lazy to take out money, I don’t have cash on me all the time. Not to mention I’m too impatient to order and wait for cookies to be delivered to me.Overall, I need my annual Samoa fix or people will get hurt.

So, I did some research and found that these cookies are pretty simple to make (who would have thought, right?). I can make and eat as many Samoas as it takes to tame the beast, but why stop there? I can become the Dr. Wu of the dessert world, I can combine cookies with other delicious desserts. The result: the No Bake Samoa Oreo Rice Krispies, also known as Rice Krispie SamOreos (patent pending).
