There is something so awesome about Girl Scout cookies. From childhood memories of selling them myself (though,  I never made it past Brownie) to a secret love for the little buggers, they are awesome. So, when I saw something like 20 boxes in my father's pantry, I first worried that he was stocking up for doomsday, then 'borrowed' a few boxes for creation. We've been enjoying sweet desserts with the classic Girl Scout cookies hidden in here and there for weeks.

I saw these beautiful Tagalong Peanut Butter Parfaits last year on My Kitchen Addiction and fell in love with the idea. So when I looked at the three boxes of Girl Scout Thin Mints I had left I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

 I knew this simple dessert was going to be good.... I didn't know it was going to be 'that' good. Make an extra one for yourself, you're going to need it. 😉



  1. All That I'm Eating says:

    These look brilliant, I could just eat one now. I'm not sure what we have similar in the UK to the girl scout cookies though...

  2. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says:

    These are fabulous! I adore thin mints and know I would love these!

  3. RavieNomNoms says:

    ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?! That is so up my alley...looks amazing. Holy cow do I love mint. Well done!

  4. Extra one for myself? I thought that was all for me! Awesome!

  5. Cookin' Cowgirl says:

    YES!!! This is awesome! Anything with Thin Mints...yep, you have my vote! I made these Thin Mint Truffles in December {} ....they didn't even last one day!!

  6. So fun. This is too creative. I want one now!

  7. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    Mmmm I want some! Our first girl scout booth in the area is this weekend - woohoo. Totally putting off getting groceries until they're at the store ha.

  8. I love girl scout cookies and thin mints are one of my favorites. I freeze them though and eat them cold lol. This trifle sounds so good.

  9. See, I don't like mint. Especially not in my chocolate. I committed the apparently mortal sin of spitting out a Thin Mint I was pressured into trying anyways. Now, Samoa trifles, that would be my kind of thing 🙂 (And my wife would inhale the Thin Mint trifles).

  10. Lauren at Keep It Sweet says:

    Look at all those "light" ingredients:-) Does that mean I can eat a few trifles at a time?

  11. What a great way to play with those extra thin mints (my favorite girl scout cookie too btw). I would have problems not licking the bowls 😀

  12. Jaime @ Jaim's Kitchen says:

    This looks and sounds like an amazing dessert! x

  13. Lacy @ NYCityEats says:

    OMG tagalong parfaits & thin mint trifles - it's like girl scout cookie heaven!! I love how they're individual servings - no danger of eating a whole large trifle of girl scout cookies on my own! 🙂 This sounds amazing!

  14. Dionne Baldwin says:

    You made me spit out my raw veggies I was eating! PA-TOOEY! I don't want raw veggies when I can have THIS! Omg, these are our favorites too. I swear I smell them now...mmmm!

    You did a great job with these! I am very impressed. I love the contrast of the green mint!

  15. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts says:

    Yes!!! I have Thin Mints left, need a dessert for Sunday, and didn't want it to be horribly bad for you! This is it!!!

  16. Julie @ Table for Two says:

    Ahh I was going to make these two weeks ago but I can't find the darn GS and my friend who was goin to order them for me has flopped so I'm without the beloved thin mints to make my trifle! So upset 🙁 but yours looks FLAWLESS. So so good!!

  17. Stephanie says:

    I've tried to avoid the GS cookies this year, but omg, this looks sooo good!

  18. Oh, man, do these look wonderful, Kita!!! Both beautiful and delicious...another winner from your kitchen!

  19. I love how you think! This looks like a perfect dessert to me:-) Hugs, Terra

  20. Mary at n00bcakes says:

    Holy balls, Batman. I'm going to leave work right now to make this and play Mass Effect 3. I literally can't think of anything more appealing right now. Mmmmmmmm.

  21. Audra@The-Baker-Chick says:

    These look absolutely delicious! I am always looking for dinner party desserts- and this is a good one!

  22. I LOVE your recipes but don't comment - ever. I'm one of those silent readers who gets it via email and drools over the recipes. All of your stuff always looks so good and tempting

    I also hail from the small town of Newark and every time I go into the co-op I think "I wonder if she has any of her delicious creations at the comic book store with her?!" haha I promise I won't creepy stalk you. I just wanted to comment and say Hi to a fellow Delawarean

    1. Don't worry, I've had weirder things happen at the comic shop than someone asking for baked goods. 😉 I wouldn't find it stalkerish at all. Thanks for saying Hi. I am a silent reader on a ton of sites myself so I totally get it.

  23. Jenn and Seth (@HomeSkilletCook) says:

    i actually did the same thing with a box of thin mints this week! great minds think alike 😉 great pics!

  24. Yummy! Absolutely gorgeous photographs!!!

  25. I only have four or five boxes of these in the freezer. (I don't know how many we ordered from the niece---enough for her to get a merit badge, surely.) What a great recipe to use them up and fantastic pics!

  26. I'm expecting a box of thin mints to come my way soon and I am SO happy I found this. It looks absolutely divine!

  27. The Harried Cook says:

    This sounds divine! I LOVE mint and chocolate and this looks really delicious! Love the photographs too... Great post, Kita!

  28. Gosh how did I miss this. Head buried in the sand this week. These are spectacular. Congrats on top 9 Kita.

  29. Daisy@Nevertoosweet says:

    These look and sound amazing 🙂 I love the glasses you've used and how you've layered them ~ YUMMY 🙂 Congrats for being Top 9 on Foodbuzz!

  30. Vicki @WITK says:

    Ive been waiting for my girl scouts cookies to arrive, I'm glad I got a few boxes of thin mints! 🙂

  31. Wow, these look fantastic. I never made it past Brownie either, I really didn't want to wear the green uniform to school and carry my violin as well. Wish I had kept up the violin though. Beautiful photos and congrats on the Top 9.

  32. Parsley Sage says:


    That is one sexy ass dessert. I ADORE thin mints. I have a friend mail me like 10 boxes every year from Vegas. I'm totally bookmarking this for my next batch!

  33. Maggie @ Vittles and Bits says:

    Ugh, LOVE girl scout cookie season! My friend from work has two little girls, so I always end up buying a few boxes from him. I didn't get thin mints this year but now I wish I did!! I'll have to see if I can find a troop selling outside the grocery store or post office 🙂 These look delish!

  34. Oh my, those look heavenly. I'm definitely a Thin Mint girl--followed closely by Samoas... Or the other way around, I'm not sure.

  35. 6 boxes disappeared within days! I am going to have to pick up a few more boxes, hide them, and make this dessert!

  36. Those look gorgeous and so good! Mixing chocolate and mint is always delicious!

  37. Jackie | Sweet and Salty SF says:

    Ohh man, these look super easy to make! Will be trying these out very soon!

  38. Katie @ OhShineOn says:

    I'm (sort of) glad I don't have pudding, cool whip, or thin mints on hand because, if I did, I'm fairly certain I would have made these and eaten every single one of them!
