Recipe of the Week

From the taste kitchen of Dr. Sarah Laginess and Family

Samoa Dip


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. thawed cool whip
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ⅛ cup caramel sauce, I used caramel ice cream topping in the jar
  • ½ cup toasted coconut
  • chocolate sauce for drizzle
  • caramel sauce for drizzle


  1. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, cool whip, powdered sugar and caramel sauce and beat until smooth.
  2. Pour into a serving bowl, making sure there is enough space between dip and rim of bowl to save room for toppings.
  3. Top with toasted coconut then drizzle with chocolate sauce and caramel sauce.
  4. Serve with shortbread cookies, graham crackers or vanilla wafers.

We use graham cracker dippers (honey and chocolate)
