Mar 23 2014 - 5:45am

Girl Scout cookie season [1] comes but once a year, so there's no time like the present to stock up on boxes of Thin Mints, Samoas, and Do-si-dos. While we certainly won't discourage plowing your way through a sleeve or two, we've rounded up a handful of ways to play with your food and transform these cookies into treats like Thin Mint brownies. Scroll down for that recipe and more, including a handful of desserts that are inspired by the cookies (but don't use any) and can be made when this epic season comes to a close. (Or, keep things simple and try our recipe for homemade Thin Mints [2].)
