My mom is the
worst best. She sent up a package filled with boxes of Girl Scout cookies. They're the best. Thank goodness they're only available once a year. I couldn't handle it if they were always available. Seriously, I may have to replace Brussels sprouts with cookies as my primary diet. Which would just be awful.
Seriously, I typically have okay self control when it comes to food. These little guys? ZERO. I found myself sitting on the floor of my bedroom stress eating the cookies. Yea, it was bad. Not one of my finest moments. But, it's in the spirit of the Girl Scouts so I guess it's okay.... right?
So the Samoas are pretty amazing. I used to not like them, but they've turned into a new favorite of mine.
But the Thin Mints will always be my favorite. (Is it just me, or have they gotten smaller over the years? I justify my ridiculous consumption of them based on this fact.)
We're a "Thin Mints Belong in the Freezer" kind of family. They absolutely taste better when super, super chilled.
But want to know how to make them taste even better? My high school crew coach's wife taught us this trick and it's truly amazing. I should put a disclaimer out there that I would rather go to the dentist than drink a glass of milk (omg, gross). But this is absolutely the only exception when milk in a glass to drink is okay.
Essentially, you make a cookie straw and drink the milk. Yea. When you were little (or, if you're like me... now) did you ever drink Sprite with Twizzler straws? It's the same concept!!!
You take the cookie and bit a little bit off opposite ends. There are tiny holes throughout the inner cookie, which creates this amazing straw. The milk ends up tasting like chocolate milk and the cookie turns into the perfect texture. The colder the cookie and the colder the milk, the better. Take that oreo!!!
Do it. I dare you.
What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?
PS Has anyone tried the Crumbs Thin Mint Cupcake?! There's a Crumbs like four blocks away from my apartment and it's taking extreme willpower not to go down and taste test. I'm secretly hoping it's horrible so I don't end up eating it every morning for breakfast. My suspicion, however, is that it's delicious.
