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!
