Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint Dessert Recipe

It’s Girl Scout cookie time! My daughter has so much fun selling cookies each year. Right now I have a dining table covered in boxes of cookies all set out in piles to be delivered. Lots and lots of yummy cookies. There might be more than a few boxes with our name on them.

Quite a few boxes actually. I didn’t realize that I had ordered that many cookies. As in I spent over $80 on Girl Scout cookies this year. All the classics… I’m talking the Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies, the Samoas and so many others!

Which Girl Scout Cookies are Classic?

The classic Girl Scout cookies are the ones that have indeed stood the test of time and have been around since the 1970’s. These cookies are well known, look pretty much the same as the day they were first launched and are oh so delicious. The classics are ultimately the fan favorites when it comes to the cookies that are ordered each year. It’s not surprising that the green box of cookies is the most popular and always takes the cake (or in this case cookie) on the order form.  

Thin Mints – The ones in the green box. Introduced in 1974, these mint-flavored chocolate cookies The perfect combination of dark chocolate and mint that’s covered in a hard chocolate ganache.

Samoas – Also introduced in 1974, this classic cookie is indeed a fan favorite. Cookie crunch, caramel, toasted coconut and chocolate drizzle are delectable on this round cookie with a hole in the center.

Trefoils – Here’s another original that came out from the very beginning of 1974. A delicious shortbread cookie that 

Do-Si-Dos – This crunchy oatmeal sandwich cookie earn its spot as an original in 1974. That thin layer of peanut butter filling is the perfect addition.

Tagalongs – The only classic that wasn’t introduced in 1974! This one came out in 1976. Peanut butter and chocolate. Need I say more? There is of course also a cookie crunch at the very bottom.

Speaking of the classics. Sally’s Baking Addiction has a classic Girl Scout cookie recipe for homemade Thin Mint cookies. You can get her recipe HERE.
