Girl Scout cookie recipes: How to use them in new treats

Sure, Girl Scout cookies are delicious straight from the box, but for a fun new way to enjoy your favorites, try one — or all — of our tempting treats. (And if you need to buy some boxes, check out this handy cookie locator from the Girl Scouts.)

1. Chocolate Caramel Coconut Milkshake

2 bonus Girl Scout cookie recipe ideas

1. Bake a batch of Thin Mint brownies. Want a super-easy recipe that yields delicious results? Coarsely chop half a box of Thin Mints, then add to your favorite boxed brownie mix and bake according to package directions. You’ll get a burst of bracing chocolate-mint flavor in every bite.

2. Make Samoa ice cream bonbons. Roll softened chocolate ice cream into small balls and coat with Samoa cookie crumbs (to make crumbs, put cookies in a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin). Their signature toasted coconut makes a delicious crunchy coating.
