Oh happy day

Walking home the other night I passed a garbage can with an empty box of Samoa cookies sitting on the bottom and it dawned on me that I had completely missed Girl Scout Season. No Somoas, no Tagalongs, no Shortbreads, and the worst of all…no Thin Mints!

Luckily, other people in the world have experienced this misfortune and they have come up with recipes to recreate the sacred Girl Scout cookie.

The process was super fun, especially the mint chocolate bath the wafers have to go through. It may have also been particularly amusing after I made the choice to accompany the delightful cookies with a warm Irish coffee.

Thin mints and Brady's


This was definitely something I never did while I was a Girl Scout, but boy am I glad to be able to take part in such a barbaric breakfast.

Happy Saturday to me!

  1. I missed girl scout cookies this year as well! There aren’t any girl scouts at the school where I work. Hmmm, I’ll have to plan for next year and scout out the girl scouts! lol

  2. This combo sounds delightful ~ perfect for a chilly, rainy afternoon when you want to indulge your self with sweets, a ‘can’t put down’ kinda book and your coziest comforter…
