If you’ve finally run out of the last box of Girl Scout cookies, fret not! First of all, Girl Scout cookies are available to buy year-round on Amazon, so there’s that. But sometimes, you just can’t beat making treats from scratch. And now there’s a recipe that tastes just like Samoas that will help you achieve Girl Scout-quality scrumptiousness in your very own kitchen.

The blogger behind The Recipe Rebel points out just how easily you can whip up a batch of coconut and chocolate-flavored cookies — with no baking required! All you have to do is heat these beauties on the stovetop in a pan and let the cookies cool on the counter until they’re firm and ready to eat — no hand mixer required. So basically, the toughest part of making these will be waiting to devour them.

You’ll start by preparing the coconut and chocolate drizzle for the tops of your cookies. Then you’ll set that aside so you can get the cookie base ready. Drizzle that deliciousness on and, once cooled, your cookies will look just as good as if they’d come out of a Samoa cookie box:
