With flavors to suit all tastes and salespeople to charm you with their adorable vests and patches, Girl Scout cookies are easy to buy in massive amounts. How can you buy just one box when Thin Mints, Tagalongs, AND Samoas are all calling your name, and you know your purchase is supporting a valuable organization?

When you’re left with more cookies than you know what to do with, it’s time to get creative and use some of the extras to make a wholly new and delicious dessert. This recipe uses Thin Mints, but substitute whatever cookie you choose to make this quick and easy recipe, perfect for dorm room cooking. I used Pillsbury Ready to Bake! Chocolate Chunk and Chip Cookie Dough, which is pre-cut, making for particularly easy preparation.
