    Five patriotic ideas for your Fourth of July celebrations.

If you’ve ever bought a box of treats from a little girl in a green uniform, you’ll instantly recognize the name of this American classic as one the most sought-after Girl Scout cookies in the roster: the Samoa. These little circles of joy are made with caramel and toasted coconut, and we dare not forget the drizzled chocolate on top. Also known as Caramel deLites (find the explanation of the name switch here), these cookies are one of the most iconic club’s sellers.

Well, now you don’t have to wait for cookie selling season, that adorable door-to-door sea of green (ah, Americana), to start in order to get your fix; and you don’t have to chew, either, because we have just the blended treat for you! Introducing the Samoa Frappuccino, fresh off of the “Starbucks Secret Menu: The Ultimate Guide.” Now, go make this delectable treat!

Ingredients

½ cup shredded coconut

¾ cup chilled coffee

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons caramel syrup

⅓ cup chocolate syrup

2 cups ice

Whipped cream (for topping)

Directions

Add all liquids first then add the ice, shredded coconut, and chocolate syrup and blend.

To serve, top with whipped cream and the rest of the shredded coconut, then add a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Starbucks Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Starbucks Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
