Get Creative With Your Girl Scout Cookies

It’s that time of year again. That time of year when it seems downright impossible to pass up that table of Girl Scout cookies being sold outside of the supermarket or bank. After all, those kids are just great salespeople … right? No matter your preferred yearly treat, exercise your culinary academy skills instead of eating them as they are.

Bored with the standard dips? Try this Tagalong dip, made with just peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and as many of the creamy peanut butter cookies as you want. Serve alongside graham crackers.

Peanut butter and chocolate is a combination to beat all other combinations. This chocolate peanut butter bread is proof of that. Sprinkle crumbled Tagalongs into the batter and top the warm bread with a spread made with peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar.

Thin Mints
These Thin Mint brownies are just as magical as you expect them to be. Rather than just eating brownies or cookies, why not crush the cookies up and lay them on top of a bed of brownie and minty cream cheese frosting?

Cookies don’t have to be only for dessert. Pop your favorite popcorn, melt some white chocolate, crush up some Thin Mints and enjoy this refreshing minty popcorn for a snack.

Not only do these coconut cupcakes use the caramel-y goodness of Samoas as topping, but they also use coconut milk to up the tropical ante. You can drizzle caramel on top for some very meta cupcakes.

If you’re ready for spring to finally come and take over the weather, usher it in with a Samoa ice cream cake. We’ve gone too long without frozen desserts and it’s time that comes to an end.

You’ve probably made graham cracker pie crust, but have you thought of using Do-Si-Dos? This peanut butter mousse pie uses the classic cookie as a crust and a topping, making it the perfect dessert to serve to guests.

Did you think you could just make sweet treats with your Girl Scout cookies? Well, think again. This peanut Thai chicken is topped with the crushed cookies, and Do-Si-Dos are even incorporated into the peanut sauce.

Savannah Smiles
The refreshing Savannah Smiles can be used to make the crust for a light, creamy citrus icebox cake. Decorate with powdered sugar and your favorite fruits, like strawberries or blueberries.

This lemon chiffon pie is also a light treat, made with Savannah Smiles crust and crumbled topping. It’s perfect to serve alongside a nice glass of iced tea.

S’mores don’t have to be made around a campfire. Sandwich some marshmallow cream between two Trefoil cookies and dip them into some melted chocolate chips. Traditional summer treats don’t have anything on these Girl Scout s’mores.

These Trefoil pinwheels may be a little time-consuming, but when you take a bite, you’ll learn that they’re worth every minute they take to make. This recipe calls for walnuts and almonds, but feel free to use any of your favorite nuts.
