Samoa Ice cream recipe

Enjoy all the flavors of Samoa cookies in this easy to make recipe. It is rich and decadent with only a few ingredients needed. The entire recipe is so simple that you don’t even need an ice cream maker.

Homemade ice cream is effortless and doesn’t have any extra ingredients. Store bought brands often have corn syrup, leavening baking soda monocalcium phosphate and more.

Make this at home and you won’t have to worry about hard to pronounce extra ingredients. The entire recipe takes just a few minutes to prepare for a really simple homemade treat.

Why are Samoas called Samoas?

The most popular theory claims the cookies were named after the island of Samoa. This island is known for coconut as it is one of the countries top exports.

Other theories suggest the name sounds like “some more” which is what cookie fans want. They want more of these Samoa Cookies.

While it closely sounds like s’mores, that name was already taken. Hence the name Samoas.

What are Samoas made of?

It starts with a basic shortbread cookie. Each cookie is topped with toasted coconut and caramel. Then the bottom of the cookie is coated in chocolate and the top is topped with more drizzled chocolate.

Everyone loves the amazing combination of these decadent ingredients. This popular cookie is second in popularity according to Girl Scout Cookies.

Ingredients for ice cream.

Ingredients:

  • heavy whipping cream.
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • chocolate syrup
  • caramel syrup

How to make Samoa Ice cream

  • Whip the cream in a bowl. Pour the cream in a large mixing bowl until stiff peaks begin to form.
  • Add the remaining ingredients. Gently fold in the sweetened condensed milk and shredded coconut. Be gentle combining so that you do not remove any of the air.
  • Place into a freezer container. Pour the mixture into a 9×5 inch loaf pan and drizzle the chocolate syrup and caramel sauce generously on top. Utilize a knife to swirl the sauces into the ice cream base to create a fudge swirl appearance.
  • Add extra syrup on top. Generously drizzle extra syrup on top. Allow the mixture to freeze for a minimum of five hours before serving. The caramel and chocolate is delicious so feel free to generously add these ingredients.

How to store samoa Ice cream

You can store this in the freezer for up to 2 months tightly covered with plastic wrap. I suggest placing a layer of parchment paper directly on the ice cream to prevent ice crystals from forming.

Girl scout Cookie Ice cream tips:

  • For additional coconut flavor, add a tablespoon of coconut syrup or a teaspoon of coconut extract to the heavy cream prior to whipping. This creates a coconut base that is extremely decadent and flavorful.
  • Because there is so much sweetness in the condensed milk and syrups, I prefer to use unsweetened coconut flakes in this easy and delicious recipe.
  • Serve this treat in between two Girl Scout Samoa cookies to easily make an ice cream sandwich. This is really amazing for a fabulous treat without much work.
  • Swirl the fudge sauce into the ice cream instead of stirring. This will create the gorgeous fudge stripe appearance in the creamy base.
  • The toppings are delicious but can make the ice cream take longer to sufficiently harden. I prefer to leave this in the freezer overnight to ensure it is hardened. This will also make the base easy to scoop.
  • Make sure the bowl has been chilled before whipping the cream. I normally place it in the freezer to ensure it is sufficiently cold. This helps the heavy cream to easily whip into stiff peaks. The colder the ingredients, the better the outcome.
