We all know that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is about so much more than what is in the box– it provides girls with meaningful lessons in financial literacy and memories to last a lifetime! However, that doesn’t mean that what is in the box isn’t incredibly delicious. There is a reason cookie season is truly the sweetest time of year!
Girl Scout Cookies are perfectly amazing on their own, with some milk, cooled in the freezer, or even heated up in the microwave. But did you know that your favorite cookies could also be used to create some incredible desserts?
Have a few extra boxes on hand and want to try something new? Unleash your inner innovator and try out one of the recipes below… perfect for the baking Girl Scout! All recipes are available on our website.
