Bite Me: Toasted Marshmallow Girl Scout Cookie Sandwiches

Toasted Marshmallow Girl Scout Cookie Sandwiches

Last week, Jeff walked into the house with a smile on his face and four or five boxes of Girl Scout cookies. That’s how we roll apparently. Anything for the children. :)  So I’ve been trying to come up with some creative ways to use them in recipes / dessert ideas, before we resort to freezing the extras.

My first thought was ice cream sandwiches, but Eden beat me to it with an awesome recipe. So, round two…toasted marshmallow sandwiches.

I’ve definitely made my fair share of marshmallow related desserts. Possibly even to the point of overkill? Nah! But I thought these would be fun, nonetheless. And easy. And delicious.

Shortbread and Toasted Marshmallow Sandwiches

All you need to make your own are these two things: a box of Girl Scout cookies (I used thin mints and shortbread (also known as Trefoils) and a bag of marshmallows.

Toast the marshmallows over an open flame (perfect excuse to get a campfire going before the temperatures start to heat up again). Then sandwich the marshmallow between two cookies. Done!

If you’re feeling fancy, you could always add chocolate and caramel for a s’more sandwich. Especially good with the shortbread cookies!

Oh no you DIDN’T! What an amazing idea! As a former Girl Scout I thoroughly approve! Mmmmm I bet samoas would taste amazing as a s’more. That toasted coconut and caramel. Or tagalongs! With the peanut butter and chocolate? Amazing. There are girl scouts selling cookies on every street corner in Savannah, GA (where I live) because we have the birth place of Juliette Low in the city. Sigh… there goes my diet.

Right? I’ve been eating the leftovers from this shoot nonstop.

Brittni | March 3rd, 2015 at 3:00 pm

I never would have thought to do this, I now consider you a culinary genius. I am in love with thin mints. I buy about five boxes a year, and hide them around the house so my husband can’t find them. I am quite stingy with them!

Alexandria | March 3rd, 2015 at 3:24 pm

Haha. That is definitely the first time anyone has ever called me that, Alexandria. But I’ll take it. :)

I’ve been staring at the box of lemon girl scout cookies on my kitchen table for the last few days wondering what to do with them and this post has given me a few ideas.

Thank you!

if you freeze the thin mints, then put the hot roasted marshmallow between them, let it sit for a moment before eating, you get a combo of cold, hot and melted chocolate.
