got girl scout cookies?

It’s that time of year again when we all fork over our hard earned cash to pig out on girl scout cookies. This is the first year that my daughters are not selling cookies. I think I still have some frozen from last year in my freezer. I did some searching for recipes that used the cookies and found some fun ones that are pretty easy to do. The first one is s’mores. I love s’mores, the combination of chocolate and melted marshmallow, yum! This is a chocolate/peanut butter version! You can use any type of Girl Scout cookie but thin mints would be yummy and very messy. I also found a couple of website that highlight other recipes that are pretty darn easy, like the Dulce de Leche Crunchy Caramel Snack Mix. They won’t prevent you from eating a whole box in one sitting but using the blender may help you burn some calories while making your new creations. Plus I think if you stand while eating them it also burns more calories, just looking out for your health! Happy eating!

And…drumroll…I was getting sick of them! Impossible. After one last plea to my weary Facebook crowd to please take them away from me, (there has to be someone that has not OD’d yet) I decided maybe it’s time to try a recipe that calls for a few (hundred). I could do this with my daughter who loves to be the little helper and sometimes sous chef when we get crazy making something in the kitchen. My favorite cookies are the Thin Mints (duh) and Tagalongs (peanut butter baby!) Here are some yummy sounding recipes for both. Side note: something I never knew was that Girl Scout troops used to bake the cookies that they sold. They offer the original recipe here. Vintage Girl Scouts, who knew?
