Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Recipes

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season, and this year, we’re taking our favorite seasonal sweets and using them in various Girl Scout Cookie-inspired recipes, instead of just sitting down and eating a whole box of cookies on our own. Find new ways to use those happy little treats, like in blondies, cheesecakes, or even ice cream and popsicle treats. Let your inner Girl Scout out and get innovative with Samoas® or your cookie of choice! Plus, don’t miss our Girl Scout Cookie Wine Pairings, which allow the cookie flavors to dance on your tongue. 

Lemon-UPS® Crunch Pops

Bite into a refreshing, creamy lemon-flavored popsicle with a crunchy twist, reminiscent of the iconic Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Bars. They’re made with crushed Lemon-UPS® Girl Scout Cookies coated on the outside of each crunch pop. These cookies add a crumbly, extra squeeze of lemon.

Toffee-tastic® Gluten-free Cheesecake

Indulge in a gluten-free cheesecake that takes after the gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie, Toffee-tastic®. It features a buttery Toffee-tastic® Girl Scout Cookie crust, topped with a smooth and creamy cheesecake filling, offering a delightful balance of sweetness and richness. Just don’t forget the Health bars on top for a little more chocolate-caramel goodness.

Adventurefuls® Cocktail

An Adventurefuls® Cocktail is placed in a cocktail glass drizzled with chocolate syrup and rim coated in crushed Adventurefuls® cookies. Three Adventurefuls® cookies sit in front of the glass.

We give Girl Scout Cookies the adult treatment with our Adventurefuls® Cocktail. A decadent cocktail infused with the flavors of Adventurefuls® Girl Scout Cookies, combining vodka, chocolate liqueur, and Irish cream. The rim is garnished with crushed Adventurefuls® cookies for a sophisticated twist.

GS S’mores® Mini Cheesecakes

GS S'mores Mini Cheesecakes sit on a pale table with a few broken GS S'mores cooking scattered in front.

These handheld cheesecakes are inspired by the classic S’mores campfire treat that all Girl Scouts delighted in. It features a GS S’mores® Girl Scout Cookie crust, chocolate ganache, a baked cheesecake filling, and fluffy topping of roasted marshmallows. This treat is truly S’mores in a cheesier, creamier form. 

Samoas® Blondies

A pile of Samoas Blondies lay on a marble table top with lightly toasted tops.

Don’t rely on regular old blondies for your next get-together. Instead, try chewy, caramel and coconut-packed blondies infused with chopped Samoas® Girl Scout Cookies into the mix. Get a bite of irresistible buttery sweetness with a hint of tropical flavor and plenty of chocolate for your sweet tooth. 

Thin Mint® Ice Cream Sandwiches

Three Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches made with Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies sit on a green table with more in the background and a few thin mint cookies scattered throughout.

For all the chocolate-mint lovers out there, here’s the perfect combination. Cool and refreshing ice cream sandwiches are made with mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiched between two Thin Mint® Girl Scout Cookies. These bite-size treats offer a perfect balance of minty freshness and chocolate crunch.

Do-si-dos® Cupcakes

Our irresistible cupcakes feature a peanut butter lover’s dream. A Do-si-dos® Girl Scout Cookie placed in the bottom gives each of these cupcakes a burst of peanut butter in the bottom of a rich bite. Plus, you have the option to use your favorite cake mix alongside almond extract and your favorite frosting with a cup of peanut butter added. 

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Pie

An ice cream cake pie decorated with strawberries and flowers with a slice taken out of it sits on a cutting board on a white table. Strawberries and Trefoil Girl Scout Cookies surround the pie.

Use Trefoils® Girl Scout Cookies to make a decadent crust for this tasty Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Pie. It’s a sweet strawberry treat prepared with crumbled Trefoils® Girl Scout Cookies as a perfect shortcake substitute.

Girl Scout Cookie Trifle

Tagalongs® Girl Scout Cookies make an excellent layer for our Girl Scout Cookie Trifle. The peanut butter combined with brownies and other chocolatey treats leaves you wanting another scoop. Plus, decorate it to your heart’s content for something tasty and visually stunning.

The Best Girl Scout Cookie Wine Pairings

A variety of Girl Scout Cookies sit around different glasses of wine and wine corks.

If you’re still looking to upgrade your Girl Scout Cookie game, pair them with different sweet wines to bring out the flavors of each cookie. Set out a tray and tasting session for your friends and decide which pairing fits best. Ignore all those other cookie and wine articles or Facebook posts you’ve seen lately. Dry wines have no place in these pairings.
