Girl Scout cookies are a seasonal treat that many of us look forward to all year long. You can bake your own while you’re waiting for the Girl Scouts to hit the streets, but there is something fun about buying a box from a scout. To get your fix another way, keep an eye out for some new Girl Scout Cookie-flavored baking mixes from Pillsbury. The mixes are the product of a licensing relationship with the Girl Scouts and offer you another way to enjoy your favorite cookie flavors. There are four mixes based on the two most popular flavors of Girl Scout Cookies, Thin Mints and Samoas:
- Girl ScoutsÂ® Thin MintsÂ® Flavored Brownie Mix
- Girl ScoutsÂ® Thin MintsÂ® Flavored Cupcake Mix
- Girl ScoutsÂ® Caramel & Coconut Flavored Blondie Mix
- Girl ScoutsÂ® Caramel & Coconut Flavored Cupcake Mix
These mixes don’t allow you to make your own Girl Scout cookies (though my copycat recipes do!!), but they do allow you to easily make Girl Scout cookie-infused treats! The mixes are made without artificialÂ colors, preservatives and artificial flavors, so you can feel good about indulging in a batch of brownies or cupcakes. And if you know someone who is a member of a Girl Scout troop, it might not be a bad idea to encourage them to do a little baking and have an off-season, cookie-inspired bake sale to raise funds for the troop and keep those cookie customers satisfied year-round!
