Were you a girl scout growing up? I surprisingly was. I don’t think I really fit in with my scout group of girls since all of them were well-behaved and I was getting close to the age where I would get suspended multiples times. Middle school had some tough years. But I think I still fit in with my group because I was REALLY good at eating girl scout cookies. Pretty MEH with selling them, but eating…I crushed that. Especially Samoas. And if you’ve missed my previous recipes, I’ve made Samoa Brownies and Samoa Truffles here on the blog. But these No-Bake Samoas are even easier. I used this caramel sauce instead of making my own and it saved SO much time. Similar to my girl scout career, these cookies did not last long.

It’s so weird that I got suspended 3 times when I was younger because nowadays I HATE breaking the rules. I drive the speed limit, I never cut in line, and I never want to break any sort of rules…other than cursing at all times of the day. But I don’t see curse words as bad words soooooo. I remember getting suspended for telling the vice principal to shut up when she said something mean about my best friend. Then I got suspended another time for talking back to a teacher but he ended up hitting me in the back of the head so we ended up having to go to court a few times. I forgot about that until now. That was a dramatic 7th grade. Then I got suspended another time most likely for being a psychopath when my puberty hormones were trying to kill everyone around me. But I blacked out through those years so I can’t say for sure. Puberty is hard. How is anyone well-behaved through those years? I’m just proud for not getting arrested. NBD.

Man, I’m having a hard time concentrating at the moment while I type out this blog post. Because I LEAVE FOR THE BAHAMAS IN TWO DAYS!! But I need to get my sh*t together because wifi will be pretty limited when I’m there, which means I need to get all my blog posts done ahead of time. But since we are on the topic of suspension, I want to hear from YOU…have you been suspended? Expelled? Arrested? Or were you an angel who didn’t question authority? I need to hear your stories because I need to get to packing! Tell me your secrets!

    WHOA those look awesome. Need to make those and they look so easy. Love the minimal ingredients!

    I was pretty much just horrible to my parents. Lied about where I was going, snuck out, blah blah. One time when I was hmm 17 *i went to boarding school so when i came back for summers I thought i had no rules/curfew* I slept at a dude’s house (he was a senior in college whoa.. ugh.. gross.. regrets) and my dad saw my car on the way to work outside of this dude’s house.

    I claimed I was at my best friends house having a sleepover.

    But really no hard drugs. Just the usual. But man no wonder my parents encouraged boarding school right?

    ENJOY THE BAHAMAS!! Is this for work or play? or both? !

    1. juli says:

      boarding school is so damn interesting to me! and it kind of sounds amazing as a person who is frightened by having children. and this trip to the bahamas was for both!!

    These are getting in my belly TONIGHT. YUM.

    I once got fired from my VOLUNTEER usher gig at a fancy pants Play House because I chewed gum. End of my wild girl days. (I didn’t know volunteers could be fired….!)

      hahahaha wow, you’re crazy Karen

    Maybe I can tell you about the time that I would regularly sneak out of my house at 2am (even on school nights) to meet my boyfriend who was waiting in his car for me?(A car that he would roll out of his driveway so that his parents didn’t hear him leaving.) We would have sex in the car – then go back home, all before 5am. Until – boyfriend’s mom saw the car was missing one night, put two and two together and called my house in the wee hours….. hmmmmm, dad finding you in the car with only a t-shirt on was not optimal…..

    Holy cow! These are AMAZING! I was so pumped about only using three ingredients I totally missed the coconut should be toasted (palm to forehead moment). Next go around I’ll for sure toast up the coconut and they will be mind blowing I’m sure if it! Thanks for all your great recipes, Juli!

      yayyyyy!! glad you loved the recipe Witney!!

    I found this post looking for cookie recipes (and this looks delicious by the way), but I wanted to share that I also had a teacher who hit someone in class! Come to think of it, he also ripped a clock off the wall because we wouldn’t stop looking at it to find out what time class was over. It was wild.
    He somehow made it through the next 15+ years without getting in trouble, but I recently saw that he was arrested for buying edibles for students. Oopsie!
