Tagalong Cupcakes

Mini Peanut Butter Trifles

When it comes to this take on Tagalongs, Jamie at My Baking Addiction says sizes matters: "The key word in this recipe is mini. Trust me, these are about as rich and decadent as a dessert gets, and you really only need just a few bites to get your peanut butter fix."

Girl Scout Cookie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Amber over at Amber's Nook decided Picky Palate's Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies could use a tweak, so she substituted her favorite Girl Scout Cookies for the Oreos.

See the recipe.

Thin Mint S'mores

This idea from Foodie Crush is less of a recipe and more of a brilliant addition to a campfire favorite. Instead of relying solely on plain old graham crackers to hold the deliciousness of a toasted mallow and melting chocolate together, try adding a Thin Mint.

See the recipe.

Thin Mint Trifle

Julie of Table for Two recommends letting these trifles spend the night chilling in the fridge "because the pudding gets to soak in some of the minty flavor and the cookies get all softened."

Excellent suggestion.

See the recipe.

Pudding Peanut Butter Tagalong Cookies

Cassie of Bake Your Day ran out of her favorite kind of Girl Scout Cookies — Thin Mints — but she dug some Tagalongs out of her freezer and found a way to make them equally irresistible.

Samoa Popsicles

Many baking bloggers are quick to note that they like to keep their Girl Scout Cookies in the freezer, but Jamie at My Baking Addiction is the first foodie we found who stores them in popsicle form.

A drizzle of Magic Shell and a sprinkle of coconut add to the ingenuity of this idea.

See the recipe.

Girl Scout Cookie Wedding Cake

While we were searching for scrumptious spins on these classic cookies, we found many recipes that we'd like to whip up in our own kitchens. Most of the ideas seem simple enough to execute.

However, we came across one creation that is obviously unrealistic for the average chef but certainly worth sharing.

This blogger at My Sweet and Saucy featured a bride who worked Girl Scout Cookies into her wedding cake, adding a coat of edible gold for class.
