Warning: This meatloaf is not for kids due to the coconut chocolate beer in it! But if you really want to serve this meatloaf to minors, just skip the beer!
This is yet another way to use Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, only this time in dinner form! All the components of Samoa Girl Scout Cookie are in this meatloaf, along with Samoa Girl Scout Cookies!
It really bothers me that you have to buy beer in a six-pack because then I have to come up with six different ways to use whatever beer I bought. I guess it's more economical to carry them in six-packs, along with the cultural association of beer and six-packs. Still, it's just an annoyance.
Surprisingly, this meatloaf didn't taste too sweet, which made me feel less guilty about having Samoa Girl Scout Cookies for lunch and dinner.
Of course, my dad didn't try this meatloaf due to the presence of beer in it and the fact that chocolate keeps him up at night.
I must've not crushed up the Caramel Crunch cereal enough because when I was mixing the meatloaf for the first time, I ended up with a liquidy batter, which is easily remedied by adding lots of plain panko breadcrumbs to the mixture. Thank goodness I had this cereal on me because had I used the cookies as the binder(which I couldn't have done anyway since I had only 5 left- not including the two boxes of generic Samoas cookies I find at the supermarket now. They're called Caramel Coconut cookies), the end result would not be a meatloaf, no matter how much breadcrumbs I added in.
The inside of the meatloaf was soft and gooey, while the outside of the meatloaf was warm and slightly crispy, which only reminded me of skillet cookies and I love those. You get the taste of a warm cookie x10 when it's made in a skillet!
