You Can Now Bake Your Own Girl Scout Cookie-Inspired Treats
Girl Scout Cookie season comes just once a year, but thanks to a collaboration with Pillsbury, you can now get your Thin Mints fix all year long.
A line of Girl Scout Cookie-inspired baking mixes have just been released, with classic flavors taking brand new forms. There are four mixes in all: a Thin Mints Brownie Mix and Thin Mints Cupcake Mix, as well as Caramel & Coconut (a.k.a. Samoas, or Caramel deLites, depending on where you live) Blondie and Cupcake Mix. The mixes retail for $3.29. Unlike the cookies that inspired them, you'll have to buy these mixes from a store, and not through your coworker's daughter.
If you're interested in making the actual cookies, the Girl Scouts have not made the official recipes available (though they, and their respective bakers, do have some fun recipes that incorporate the cookies). Still, there are plenty of great-looking copycats on the internet if you're feeling adventurous and simply can't wait until the start of the next Girl Scout Cookie season.
