Girls Scouts. So many wonderful memories. We talk about “Make New Friends, But Keep the Old.” I remember cookie sales and cookie deliveries almost in the middle of the night. One time at a tennis court at 10:00PM. Seems like that was the only place this lady spent her time. I don’t know how Krista found her at home to sell her cookies!
Thin Mints are my favorites. I don’t usually buy them because I don’t need them around the house to tempt me. But this cute little girl was with her momma outside a store on a very windy Friday. She was trying to sell the most of anyone in the troop. She was campaigning for the Girl Scouts and I was impressed. So I bought this box of cookies.
I was tempted to open them when I saw a box mix of Duncan Hines Snack Size Brownies in the pantry. Why not add a little more chocolate to the brownies and a little mint? We all know how much I like to use mint. (Check back to the Christmas time cookies.) These just have to be good.
So I quickly gathered my ingredients. I put a sleeve of Thin Mints in a plastic bag and beat them up into small chunks with my wooden mallet.
I topped these brownies with 8 more cookies. (Just to remove the temptation.) There were a few left so I put them in the freezer for safe keeping. We all know how frozen cookies lose their flavor!
Give these a try and support the Girl Scouts at the same time. They are fine women when they grow up. I have two of them in my family to prove that.
Speaking of Girl Scouts….it has been a few weeks since we met a new friend. Come and meet my new friend Rachel who love’s her disorganized life at New Friend Friday.
