Girl Scout Cookie Foodie Blog Favorites

A collaboration with Melissa’s Produce

Just as Girl Scouts are challenged to think outside the box when coming up with innovative and resourceful ways to help their communities—we challenged five local foodie bloggers to create imaginative, original recipes that include both Girl Scout Cookies and fresh ingredients from our friends at Melissa’s Produce.

And the results are in! As we enter our last weekend of Girl Scout Cookie sales in Greater LA, check out all the recipes below and scroll to the end of this post to find out which recipe we’ve dubbed the 2017 champ!
