Be on the lookout-- Girl Scouts will be canvassing neighborhoods nationwide as they sell their delectable boxes of cookies. Thin Mints, Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties are among the most popular flavors. Buying Girl Scout cookies helps support a wonderful program so it can be easy to get carried away with an order form. Before you devour them all on your own try whipping up one of these tasty (and affordable) recipes that can be shared with family, friends and co-workers.

Grasshopper Pie
In addition to a box of thin mints you'll only need five other ingredients for Grasshopper Pie: cream cheese, a can of sweetened condensed milk, green food coloring, whipped topping and a chocolate crumb crust. Assemble it in minutes and freeze overnight for a refreshing treat.


Tagalong Crescent Rolls
Susan at stickygooeycreamychewy.com found a creative way to use up a box of Tagalongs she bought from her niece. She mixed the broken cookies in with softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and peanut butter. She then stuffed the mixture inside refrigerated Crescent rolls. Find the full instructions on her blog.


Chocolate Hazelnut Parfaits
Turn a traditional box of Girl Scout Shortbread into something fancy enough for company with just a few simple steps. To make Chocolate Hazelnut Parfaits you'll need cold milk, hazelnut nondairy creamer, instant chocolate pudding and fresh strawberries. Get the easy instructions at tasteofhome.com.


Peanut Butter Cream Dessert
If something terrible were to happen to your box of Do-Si-Dos (also known as Peanut Butter Sandwiches) this recipe would ensure they don't go to waste. You'll need one cup of chopped peanut butter-filled sandwich cookies along with cold milk, instant white chocolate pudding mix, whipped topping, cream cheese, butter and confectioners' sugar to make this Peanut Butter Cream Dessert.


Do-Si-Dos Peanut Thai Chicken
Sounds odd, but when Girl Scout Cookies are an ingredient it can't be too bad, right? You'll need 8 crushed Do-Si-Dos, two pounds of boneless chicken, teriyaki glaze, Pad Thai noodles and Thai peanut sauce to whip up this recipe from littlebrowniebakers.com.


Samoa Stuffed Brownies
Buy a box of Samoas and a brownie mix to make this divine dessert from shakentogetherlife.com. Mix the brownies according to the instructions on the box and layer the cookies into muffin liners. In less than an hour and for a few bucks you'll have a semi-homemade treat to devour.
