1. Samoas Ice-Cream Truffles
For a sweet, bite-sized dessert, roll ice cream into small balls then coat in your favorite Girl Scout Cookie crumbs. Pile Samoa truffles, Do-Si-Dos Ice Cream Truffles, and Trefoils Ice-Cream Truffles into a bowl or waffle cone to resemble individual scoops of ice cream.
Call in the troops to help with this simple after-dinner dessert. Use your favorite flavor of ice cream, extra Trefoils, and of course, the classic sundae toppings like chocolate, maraschino cherries, and whipped cream.
Only 5 ingredients are needed for this deceptively refreshing, summertime parfait. Earn your badge for creativity when you layer crushed Lemonades, blueberry filling and lemon-flavored cream.
Holly Grainger at MyRecipes.com says pick your favorite leftover cookies for decoration, crush cookies for the crust, and prepare Raspberry Glaze. If you’re making this pie for your Daisy, Brownie, Cadette, Junior, or Senior, substitute chocolate sauce for the mocha liqueur.
Just like the buddy system, this double cookie delight fills two cookies with creamy white chocolate. Use two Samoas, Dulce de Leches, or a Do-Si-Dos split in half to make these decadent, cream-filled sandwich cookies
Earn your Girl Scout Gold Award with this 5-star cookie pudding recipe. MyRecipes.com recommends Tagalongs to make chocolate peanut butter pudding, Do-Si-Dos for oatmeal peanut butter pudding, or Thin Mints for chocolate mint pudding.
7. Chocolate and Peanut Butter S’mores
Gather ’round the campfire and substitute Thin Mints for the wafer cookies to give this peanut butter and roasted marshmallow combo a hint of mint.
Finely ground Trefoils cookies make the perfect base for this elegant lemon cheesecake. Decorate with sliced strawberries and “do a good turn daily” by sharing with friends and family.
If you still have Tagalongs on-hand, give Peanut Butter-Chocolate Tagalongs Milk Shakes or Vanilla-Banana Tagalongs Milk Shakes a try.
