Make an Entire Dinner With Girl Scout Cookies Using These 5 Recipes

girl scout cookiesIt's hard to imagine that a Girl Scout cookie can be improved upon, but from the looks of these recipes, it may be true. Why just eat a sleeve of Thin Mints alone on the couch when you could be using those cookies to whip up some amazing Thin Mint popcorn you could share with your friends? Girl Scout cookies: bringing people together since whenever the Girl Scouts started. Fact is, there are a lot of Girl Scout cookie recipes, both sweet and savory, that you need to know about.

Everyone knows that you can down a box of Samoas and a quart of 2 percent milk like it's your job, but did you ever consider making a Samoa cake? It's possible. All you need is a bundt pan and a little determination to make this delicious dessert a reality.

But before you can dive into dessert, you've got to finish all of your dinner. This ingenious recipe actually uses the Girl Scouts' Lemon Chalet Creme cookies to add a zesty crunch to your fish dish. That's right. Fish dish.

As a side dish, try making stuffing using Dulce de Leche Girl Scout cookies. Butter, nuts, celery, onions, sweet bites of cookie -- sounds really delicious, and I'm being totally serious.

And as a palate cleanser, try making this popcorn recipe using Thin Mints. It's almost easier done than said.

Wash it all down with a milkshake made from any of the cream-filled Girl Scout cookie varieties and you won't be disappointed. Just blend away and enjoy.

Girl Scout cookies are already on sale in some areas, so check the website for when you can expect a friendly, cookie-promising knock at the door. And remember, order wisely. None of those weird-sounding "nutrifusion" cookies, OK?

Do you like to bake or cook with Girl Scout cookies?

    Wish these recipes had been around when I was a troop leader years ago! All I did was sandwich whipped cream into a row of cookies and freeze it. Yum.

    Hi All! Don't forget that Girl Scouts sell cookies to fundraise troop actives, like camping and travel. So when you buy a box of cookies, you are not only getting a sweet treat, but you are helping girls reach their goals! Also, many GS councils have an I Care program, where they donate cookies to local food banks and to soldiers serving overseas. Imagine how happy a soldier is when her receives a care box filled with magazines and GS cookies! When you spend that $4, you are also supporting the troops and local charities!
