Can we discuss Girl Scout cookies for a second?
I was a Girl Scout (all the way from Daisy, to Brownie, to Junior, to Cadet, to...well...Girl Scout)-it was such a fun time in my life. I was in a troop with my best friends, and all of our moms were joint troop leaders. Many good times were had. Including freezing and sitting outside the local Walmart, trying to sell some cookies. And oh...ohhh the competition of cookie sales. One year I sold the most (largely thanks to us purchasing like...30 some boxes. And many hungry neighbors. I was a great little sales lady) and boy, I felt SO proud. Like...probably way too proud. Anyway, due to this competitive nature, my family always bought a ton of cookies, which we would then store in the freezer and would last us all year long until cookie season came again! We always stocked up on quite a few flavors (lemon and shortbread for mom, and thin mints, tagalongs--or as we used to call them, peanut butter patties, and samoas for everyone else). My FAVORITE has always been Tagalongs.
Another amazing memory I have with the Girl Scouts (in addition to many other times in my life): cooking food over a fire (namely little pizza things)--ESPECIALLY, my old friend, S'mores!!! So...of course...it makes so much sense to mush together two of my childhood loves. SUCH a simple, and great idea. Chocolate, peanut butter, shortbread, toasty marshmallow.....mmmmmmmmm. You need to try this. With any cookies in your life. Just...go....go do it. And remember pigtails. And making Christmas presents. And camping in your friend's backyard. And earning badges. Remember childhood. :)
....dude....childhood tastes pretty sweet.... :P
- Tagalongs (or favorite cookie), 2 per s'more.
- Regular sized marshmallows, 1 per s'more.
- Toast marshmallows by roasting over a fire (or gas stove), or with a kitchen blowtorch, or by placing in a broiler safe pan and putting them under the broiler in your oven, checking frequently, until toasted to your liking.
- Sandwich toasted marshmallow between 2 cookies. DEVOUR!
Mmmm.....I took that bite. #noregrets
