9 Girl Scout Cookies You Can Make At Home, Because Thin Mints Should Be Enjoyed Year Round
Every year, we anxiously wait for the little girls in green uniforms to walk around the neighborhood and sell their famous Girl Scout cookies. Or maybe you know a Girl Scout, and she knows exactly how many boxes of Do-Si-Dos you order each year to last you until her troop starts to sell them again next year. No matter how you look at it, the Girl Scouts of America are doing something right; troops have been selling cookies for about 97 years, and now, the Girl Scouts will take their cookie selling business online with a new program called “Digital Cookie.” And while many people buy the same type of cookies year after year after year (with sales of all those boxes of Thin Mints and Rah-Rah Raisins accumulating approximately $800 million per year), sometimes, you just want to try something (kind of) new. But not too new.
Enter this slideshow, made up of Girl Scout cookie recipes that offer a new twist on old classics. And while I definitely think you should try one of these delicious new treats, you still might want to buy a box or two of your old standbys from your favorite Girl Scout. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait a whole year until Girl Scout cookie season is upon us again.
