The Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge is back for its eighth year!
After taking a break in February 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) is pleased to present the return of the challenge taking place February 1-28.
Chefs from venues throughout the state will participate in this year’s friendly competition to create a winning dessert with one of these classic Girl Scout Cookies: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, or Lemon-Ups.
“The participating chefs will use their culinary prowess to re-imagine these classic Girl Scout Cookies into a delicious dessert and feature it on their menus throughout the entire month of February. A portion of the proceeds will support Girl Scouting in Arizona,” says Mary Mitchell, interim Co-CEO for GSACPC.
Those who taste the desserts may also vote on their favorites at
girlscoutsaz.org/dessertchallenge and the venue with the most votes at the end of the month will earn this year’s Dessert Challenge Champion crown!
