Last week I shared a decadent Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart recipe for Valentines Day. It’s rich, luscious, and very sophisticated.

However, is you are planning a casual dinner for Valentines Day, I’ve got another chocolate-caramel treat that is just as spectacular.

How to Make Samoas Texas Sheet Cake Recipe

The chocolate sheet cake layer is dark and tender, yet not overly sweet. This allows for a blanket of soft caramel to be draped over the top. Then the Samoas Texas Sheet Cake is covered with toasted coconut and chocolate, just like Samoas Girl Scout Cookies.

If you can’t get enough of those little crispy caramel-chocolate-coconut rings, when the Girl Scouts come around, this is your lucky day.

For the Texas Sheet Cake:
For the Samoa Topping:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 15.5 X 10.5 inch baking dish (or jelly roll pan) with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the first 6 dry ingredients for the cake batter. Whisk in the melted butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour the batter in the prepared baking dish and bake for 22-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely before proceeding. *Do not open the oven door before 22 minutes have passed or the cake might collapse.

  3. Meanwhile, toast the coconut by stirring in a skillet over medium heat, until most of the shreds are golden-brown. You could also spread the coconut flat out on a baking sheet and toast it in a 350 degree oven for 6-8 minutes.
  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk in a medium sauce pot. Unwrap all the caramel squares and add them to the pot. Turn the heat on medium and stir continually until the caramels have melted into the mixture. Stir and simmer a few minutes longer to thicken, then remove from heat.
  5. Pour the caramel over the top of the cake and spread out evenly. Immediately sprinkle the toasted coconut and mini chocolate chips over the caramel. Tap the pan on the counter top to help the coconut settle into the caramel.

Recipe Notes

NOTES: This cake can sit out on the countertop, covered, for up to three days, or in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. It tasted best at room temperature.

    I would love to make this, but I don’t have a 10×15 pan. Obviously I would have to adjust the 
    Baking time, but which size would work best – half-sheet pan, 9×13 or 11×7?

    Thanks for your help!

    PS I got here from foodie with family

      Hi Carroll,

      I would go with two 11X7 pans, or the 9X13 baking dish. With the 9X13, it will need a little longer to bake.

      I’m glad you found us! :)

    Is there any chocolate thing that cannot be improved upon by being “Samoa-d”? Certainly not a cake, as you have proven here. This looks absolutely amazing.

    This cake looks divine. I love everything about it except that I would probably eat the whole thing on my own. Love!

    Thanks for the great looking recipe, Sommer. Love your web site. Had a question about the recipe. I look forward to trying the recipe out. Hits all my boxes, coconut, caramel, chocolate and butter. However, I don’t happen to have some of the ingredients on hand, specifically the cake ingredients, and was curious, would a box cake work, more importantly, would one box cake, prepared according to directions, do the job or would I need more than one.

    Keep up the good work.

      Hi Greg!

      You can definitely use a boxed cake mix, but I like to think my homemade cake is better. ;)
