Like many people I have a weakness for Girl Scout Cookies, and I love supporting my local troops. This year I bought a ridiculous amount of cookies from my friends daughter and I took this opportunity to try my hand at some Girl Scout Cookie themed deserts. This past weekend I made three different truffles, Samoas (caramel deLites); Lemonades; and Thin Mints. They turned out just as delicious as I hoped and I look forward to trying more desert recipes in the future.
