Trend Alert: Girl Scout Cookies Into Designer Desserts!

Trend Alert: Girl Scout Cookies Into Designer Desserts!

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with a brand new series “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning and give you my twist on how to use it in your next party!  Today’s guest post is all about Girl Scout Cookies Transformed Into Designer Desserts! As a former Girl Scout troop leader, I saw first hand the amazing number of people who purchase boxes and boxes of these popular cookies to stock up since they are only sold once a year! Now what to do with all those boxes of cookies?

Jamie from My Baking Addiction has created some FABULOUS & YUMMY desserts from the top 3 most popular flavors of Girl Scout Cookies – Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Samoas! These fabulous desserts are as gorgeous looking as they are yummy! Designer looking dessert recipes using these popular cookies are popping up all over the web.

I’m sure we all have extra boxes of Girl Scout Cookies laying around and if not, it’s still cookie season and can still pick some up… now you’ve got just the excuse to buy more!  Check out these fabulous desserts and then click over to My Baking Addiction for the recipes. Enjoy!

My twist on this trend? Why not create a gorgeous dessert table with these desserts AND support your local Girl Scout troops at the SAME TIME! WIN-WIN! The cookies stay fresh in the freezer for up to one year, so you can stock up now and whip them out later in the year when everyone is still craving these!

I predict that Girl Scout Cookies and desserts made with them will be making their way onto dessert tables at weddings and in-home parties since they’ve gotten such a designer makeover! Be sure to check out this month’s “Look for Less” post where I show you how to create a fabulous “Cravings” Milk & Cookies Bar using Girl Scout cookies as an alternative to pricier dessert bars for baby showers!

Want more Girl Scout party inspiration? It’s “Girl Scout Week” over on my blog where I am sharing LOTS of Girl Scout events! Check it out here.

What do you think of this new trend? Are you inspired to try some of these recipes? Have you come up with other creative ways to use up those boxes of Girl Scout cookies? We’d love to know! Leave a comment below.
