Foodista: 8 Twists on Classic Girl Scout Cookies


We’re excited to bring you another great article from POPSUGAR Moms, a fantastic source for mamas who want advice and news about everything from packing healthy lunches to mastering the art of stroller chic. This week, we’re featuring their article on putting a twist on the classic girlscout cookie.


Your lil Girl Scout had dreams of selling the most cookies in her troop, so of course Mama bought up as many she could. Tempting as it may be to polish them off the week they arrive, if you can practice enough self-control to save a box or two, then you can incorporate your family’s favorite cookie into a decadent dessert recipe. Whether your allegiance is to Thin Mints, Tagalongs, or Do-Si-Dos, we’ve rounded up eight new ways to enjoy your annual dose (or even an overindulgence) of Girl Scout cookie goodness!

Lilyshop combined two favorites — Do-Si-dos and Thin Mints — for her Girl Scout cookie twist on classic s’mores.


Gooey Girl Scout Cookie Cake Bars

    Thanks Tori….its good to know that there are other options to eating these delectible treats. There is only 2 weeks left to this incredible time of year :) The cookie season is more then just selling cookies and ruining diets lol….its about giving our daughters a sense of building a business, dream building, goal setting, graciously accepting NO from customers, being able to appreciate and be greatful to their supporters and cheerleaders to their fellow girl scout sisters. If you know a local scout to support – know your doing more then just buy cookies :) If you cant eat them or dont need/want them remember our troops with an Operation Thin Mint donation…..Our troops serving overseas will get ataste from home when these goodies and notes of support get mailed out in May (approx). Thanks from a Girl Scout Mom :)

    Always cool to support young girls & help give them a sense of pride & independence! Love these cookies in their “original form”, but these recipes look divine! I think the Girl Scout Tagalong cupcakes (version 2!) look like something I MUST try ASAP!

  • Jaime Knox

    Thin Mints of course!

  • Sarah

    I used to give blood in high school only because they served samoas as a snack afterwards! They are pretty sweet for me now, but I am pinning that tart for my next party. Pretty!

  • MamaPaws

    I was a Girl Scout for almost 10 years. I made some great friends, and had many experiences that i will forever treasure. These ideas for cookies look great! My favorites was always thin mints and peanut butter patties. This post took me way back.
