I know it is early for a snack…but yet another confession… Samoa Girl Scout Cookies are like my favorite cookie in the world…I love them straight out of the box and any homemade recipe that contains the deliciousness of coconut …chocolate and caramel…so when I saw these Samoa Doughnuts I near fell off my chair!  Aimee from Twigg Studio has created yet another culinary delight!  Aimee…you have to stop…you are going to be the reason we gain a few pounds and it is not even the holidays yet : )
