Samoas Inspired Ice Cream Balls Recipe

Care to guess what my favorite cookie is of all time? You got it! The Girl Scout Samoa cookies, pure deliciousness all packed into a portable treat. We recently had some fried ice cream at a local Mexican restaurant and we just loved it. But, of course when I’m indulging in sweets… I’d rather not fry them too! I figured, why not just add a crunchy coating to it and serve as is.

I had whipped up a batch of not-fried ice cream balls recently and they were so fun and good. I was trying to think of different flavors that I could use and happily I thought of the Samoas. They came out very very yummy! So, if you are a fan, you might want to give these a try. They are mighty easy and even great for serving guests.

  1. Crush the cookies and mix with the toasted coconut. You can mash it with a cup or put it in a plastic bag and crush that way. Set it in a shallow bowl nearby. Scoop out an even ball of ice cream, with your hands very quickly form into a round ball and roll into the cookie mixture until fully coated. Repeat 4 times.Drizzle each ice cream with a little chocolate and or caramel syrup. Serve and enjoy!

Do you love Samoas Cookies as much as we do?


  1. Those look so delicious! I like the idea of creating a “fried” ice-cream without the actual frying.

  2. OOh these look scrummy! I can’t eat the cocolate, but I’d make some for me with just the caramel topping and make them your way for the rest of the fam! Pinned this!

  3. This recipe is absolutely amazing! I think that it is the Lorna Doone Shortbread Cookies that give it that extra edge over other recipes.

    • Thanks Daisy, I thought the shortbread cookies would bring it all together too and they really did! Quite yummy!
