The Best Ever Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Treats
Thin Mints, Samoas & Do-si-dos, oh my!
People just can’t get enough of Girl Scout Cookies. For some sweets lovers, GSC season is their all-time favorite time of year. And even big brands, like Dunkin’ Donuts, are getting in on the cookie obsession.
While the tempting treats are great on their own, creative chefs and bakers across the country are incorporating ’em into an array of decadent desserts. In celebration of National Girl Scout Day on March 12th, the Foodgōd team rounded up some of the most mouthwatering GSC-infused delights to #treatyoself to.
Kellie from The Suburban Soapbox puts a tasty twist on traditional cannoli. She stuffs crispy shells with sweetened ricotta and crushed Girl Scout cookies, and tops ’em with caramel and chocolate drizzle and toasted coconut flakes. These babies “take just 10 minutes to make and 30 seconds to devour.” We’re in!
Girl Scout Cookie Donuts
Take your Girl Scout cookie obsession to the next level at Broad Street Dough Co. in Oakhurst, NJ. Known for their over-the-top doughy creations, the Garden State bakery whipped up decadent versions of three classic GSC flavors: Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs. We’ll take all three, thanks.
