Samoa Macaroon Tarts. Oh my gosh, would you look at that title??

Really though, in all seriousness this has to be one of my shortest titles yet. See, I am sort of a freak when it comes to my titles. Some people have actually told me they find my titles annoyingly long, but I cannot help it.

I just want to fit all the deliciousness of the said recipe into the recipe name. Unfortunately, they then end up being a million miles long because I simply cannot leave anything out. To me, I totally think you guys need to know that a single recipe may contain brown butter, salted caramel, toasted coconut and spiced whipped cream + a chocolate drizzle. It’s good stuff and I can’t leave anything out. I just can’t, it’s too hard.

So, sorry if you hate my long and obnoxious recipe names, this one may be short, but I wouldn’t get used to it if I where you.

Anyway, this recipe is all about coconut, caramel and chocolate. Classic Samoa cookie flavors, but I turned them into cute little chocolate macaroon tarts.

They are so fun. I kind of love them. A lot.

How do you guys feel about these in between seasons days? It is not yet fall, but summer is clearly winding down and clearly I am craving a little of the cozier foods. I am kind of at this point where I really do not know what to make for this time of year. The local apples have not yet arrived, and I am not going to start in on any pumpkin until it is officially fall, so that leaves the in between foods.

The foods you can make anytime of the year. For me, that seemed to scream chocolate and coconut. I went for the caramel flavor too because caramel is so fall-like and I thought it’d be a nice addition + a good way to ease into the fall-ish foods.

How could it not be??

These are actually pretty easy to make. The crust is basically just toasted coconut. Which quite simply means, delicious. I love toasted coconut anything… especially paired with chocolate and caramel and more chocolate. The filling is a gooey chocolate mixture and the top is just like a classic samoa cookie. Caramel mixed with sweetened coconut.

You can eat these warm right out of the oven, which is my favorite. Or at room temp, which is awesome as well – whatever you are feeling.

Coconut Macaroon

Chocolate Filling

Caramel Samoa Topping


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Grease 18-20 cupcake tins with butter or oil.
  • If your coconut is shredded, add it to a food processor and process until you have ground coconut, measure out 3 cups.
  • Add the coconut, egg whites and sugar to a bowl. Mix until moistened and then press into the prepared baking cups. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the coconut is lightly golden and toasted.
  • While the coconut macaroons bake, prepare the filing. Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Add the eggs, egg yolks and sugar to a separate bowl and whisk until pale yellow in color. Gently fold the flour and chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Spoon the chocolate filling into the macaroon crust, filling them to the top.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just set on top.
  • Meanwhile get started on the caramel. Combine the caramels and cream in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth, this took about 10 minutes for me. Remove from the heat and stir in the shredded coconut.
  • Dip the tarts into the melted chocolate, place on a cookie sheet and allow the chocolate to harden, about 1 hour at room temp or 15 minutes in the freezer.
  • Once the chocolate is hard, place the coconut caramel on top of each tart. Drizzle each tart with remaining melted chocolate. Eat warm or cold*.


*If you want to serve the tarts warm, dip them in chocolate as directed. Then place on a plate and top with coconut caramel. Drizzle with chocolate. Serve warm with a fork...and cold milk! **I used a mini brioche mold to make these. You can find it [here on Amazon |] if you are interest.

  2. Is this recipe for regular size muffin tins, or mini muffin tins? If I wanted to make it in mini muffin cups how long do you think the crust and filling would need to cook?


    1. HI! This is for regular muffin tins. I am unsure of the cooking time for mini. I would guess around 15 minutes. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  15. Thes look delicious. I am certain they’ll taste wonderful, much better than Girl Scout cookies do- “taste alikes” or “inspired by” always do. GS cookies are terrible, dry, store-boughts that taste stale, waxy, and flavor-less. My friend makes a fake thin mint by dipping Ritz into melted, tempered chocolate into which she adds peppermint oil. Tastes better than the original, not waxy, cheaper, available anytime.

  16. Holy cow! I want one of these right now. If I had all the ingredients, my mixing bowls would be out! I’m adding this to my shopping list!

  17. Forget the girl scouts – I’m making these! These are brilliant, Tieghan. Even with their short title I can almost taste all the flavors;)

  18. The pictures looked amazing. I was totally disappointed when I went to dip them though due to the fact that the bottoms of the cookies fell off! Not only that but some needed to be wrenched out of the pan via paring knife!! The filling fell out as they were flipped for topping and the topping just didn’t work. This recipe needs some major tweaking!

    1. Hey Astrid, I am really sorry you had so much trouble with these. I feel horrible! Did you grease your cupcake tins with cooking spray? Also, are you sure you cooked the filling completely through? if not, that may have been why the filling fell out. I am happy to help you if you have any questions. Again, so sorry these did not work for you. Sometimes recipes can work great for some people and not so much for others.

  19. Lol! I thought when you said “look at that title” you meant “look at how amazing all those words together sound!” and I was all, “YES, I agree!” and then you mention how short it is, haha. Either way, I want like eleventy billion of these tarts in my life!

  20. These look so beautiful! I love that you used a mini brioche mold. It definitely adds a little different touch to these lil’ babies.

  21. Totally just died looking at your incredibly delicious images Tieghan, it’s safe to say that I am craving one of these tarts right now.. Pinned!

  22. Oh My Stars, T! These look…AH-MAZING!!! What photography! Awesome 🙂 I bet they are delicious! Well done- Thanks for sharing 🙂

  23. Um, yes please!! These look downright amazing, and I’m sure these will more than stave off my fiercest samoa craving until the next round of Girl Scout cookies comes about. Yuuuummm…

    1. THANK YOU! You are the best. Have a great weekend (and I am sure you will if you have those drinks you posted today)! 🙂

  24. Wow! These look absolutely amazing! I love the photos! I definitely think I’ll be trying these soon…I’ve been looking for great recipes for these in-between-seasons days too, and these definitely take the cake (or tart!) 🙂

  25. My husband (and probably everybody else I know) will completely flip when I try this recipe. Wow. Looks amazing!

  26. Gahhhh these look totally amazing. I’d take one over a regular macaroon any day. Gorgeous!

  27. Dude. With pictures like this, you could have titled this post, “tart-thingies” and I would still be drooling. My thighs, by the way, really hate you.

  28. These look amazing! I can’t resist anything samoa-ey and I’m drooling over these! Gorgeous photos!

  29. haha…That is actually one of the things that stuck out to me about you when I first came across your blog. But your “long titles” have inspired me to not leave anything out too! So we can have long titles together. 🙂

    This recipe….. jaw droppin!

  30. Ooooh these look sublime. Samoa inspired desserts – can’t go wrong. I pinned this already before I even saw your post. I was all over it. Thanks for sharing these!

  31. These look incredible! And I agree with you – gotta have a long title to let everyone know about all the great stuff in the recipes! But then I get self conscious that it’s too wordy! Ha ha. #foodbloggerproblems.

  32. These are so cute and they look delish! I love your unusually long recipe names. I always “think” I know exactly what to expect and I say think because it is usually 1000X better! But seriously, knowing the ingredients makes it easier to lookup and save for later without having to dig to find the ingredient list 🙂 Have a good weekend!

  33. You’re long titles set you apart – in the best way! They aren’t annoying! You’re just trying to explain what the recipe is 😉 These look divine. I always love your photography and food styling. You are pure talent, Tieghan! Thanks for sharing these, I will have to make them for my samoa obsessed mother!

  34. Oh my, these could cause BIG problems if I made these. I know my husband would love them and so would I. Droooolllll!!!

  35. Oh my goddddd. Tieghan – these are the most epic little dessert bites I’ve EVER seen. I WANT these in front of me asap!!

  36. Macaroon and samoa tarts? Totally drooling over these and those pictures! I love how dark and moody all your images are too – makes these even that much more appealing! Also I love your long titles – it tells me exactly what it’s going to be which I think is perfect – no misleading there! pinned 🙂

  37. I adore your long recipe titles! They are fun and unique, and totally over-the-top, and although I enjoy a lot of simple things, I also like crazy things!

  38. Wow, I can’t get over these! All I need is some chocolate and my ingredient list is complete – YAY! Can’t wait to make these Tieghan!

  39. Oh boy I just had a flashback to my cookie selling / Girl Scout days. Samoas were always a top seller because the flavors are amazing! these tarts look great – and the name captures it perfectly 🙂

  40. Oh.My.God. These look Amazing. I’m doing all homemade Christmas gifts this year and these just went on my list.

  41. Oh the girl scout cookie that is dear to my heart. These are unbelievably drool worthy. These need to happen before we dive into all things pumpkin and apples!

  42. These looks so good…the only girl scout cookie I like is the samoa and these take those flavors to a whole new level…I’d love to know what kind of pan you used to get those pretty shapes…and I love the long titles don’t change a thing.

  43. It’s hard to create a title not involving every element of a recipe! Your titles are lovely.
    Speaking of lovely, these tarts are just that as well! I want one soooo bad!!!!

  44. I love your long recipe names, because I always do the same!
    THESE TARTS OHMYGOODNESS. These are one of your most amazing creations girl, and you have a lot of them so that’s saying something. Screw the gym today, I’m eating these.

  45. I gained 2 pounds just by looking at these pics!
    But jeepers, it was soooo worth it!
    Perfect recipe for the weekend, thanks. And my hubby will be forever grateful – he’s a full-blown chocoholic. 🙂
