Samoas-Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies

Having once been a girl scout, my wheat allergy has taken a very special time of year from me and turned it into a time of jealousy. Every Feb, girl scouts are following you from the doors of Publix to your car taunting you with girl scout cookie deliciousness. Be jealous no more. Introducing McKeeby's GF Samoas. (I don't actually remember what Samoas are supposed to taste like, but these are DELICIOUS! They remind me of 'magic bars' or 'seven layer bars')COOKIES:
* 1/2 cup butter, room temp
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 1 1/2 cup Pamela's Baking Mix
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 14 individual wrapped caramels
* 1 1/2 T milk ( I used almond, but any will do)

* 1 cup coconut
*4 oz chocolate (I used a hershey bar leftover from V-Day)

While making the cookie dough, I placed a flat layer of shredded coconut on a cookie sheet and baked for 5-7 mins at 325.
With a mixer, blend the butter and sugar. Mix in Baking mix and vanilla. Roll into cookies or roll and cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 325 for 14-16 minutes.
Melt chocolate in microwave (20 seconds at a time and mix). Dip the bottoms of the cokies in chocolate and place on parchment paper to cool.
Melt caramels and milk in microwave (20 seconds at a time and mix). When melted completely, stir in coconut. Top cookies. Melt remaining chocolate and drizzle over top of the cookies.
