Girl Scouts Cookies Go Candy!?

I almost never buy candy. Never. But earlier this week I saw a commercial for Nestlé Crunch limited-edition Girl Scout Cookie flavored candy bars and knew I had to go out and try them right away.

The candy bars are being sold June through September in three flavors based on classic Girl Scout cookies: Thin Mints, Caramel Coconut and Peanut Butter Crème.

The Samoa flavor cookie is my favorite, but the Caramel Coconut candy bar was actually a disappointment! Fear not – the other two flavors were far more impressive and worth the splurge, especially the Thin Mint flavor.

So all this talk and thinking about Girl Scout Cookies got me thinking…what else can you do with Girl Scout Cookies!?

Hardly the first to consider this, I found a number of fantastic recipes using leftover Girl Scout Cookies, that is, if you actually have any leftover! My favorites from this list on Taste of Home are the Peppermint Mint Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Cookie Parfait.

And if you are a Samoa cookie lover like me, you can check out this list of 5 Samoa Girl Cookie Cupcakes – such creative ideas to inspire you, or at least break those cookies out of the freezer.

If you still haven’t had your fill of Girl Scout cookie-related baked goods, check out Cupcake Wars on the Food Network on July 8th when four bakers compete for their cupcakes to be featured at the 100th birthday bash for the Girl Scouts of the USA.
