Thin Mints are my personal favorite. My love for Thin MInts began when I was Brownie in Girl Scouts. Still every year I buy Thin Mints and immediately put them into the freezer. I find that they become more delicious when frozen! They are cold and crispy which is nice and refreshing with the mint flavor. Plus they last a little bit longer when I freeze them, and it’s a nice surprise when I open the freezer door!
Okay, so enough about my favorite cookie let’s get into these delicious desserts. Here are 11 Drool-Worthy Girl Scout Cookie Desserts!
Let’s Get Started!
