Girl Scout Cookie Mimics

The girl scouts stopped selling me cookies :(

And by girl scouts I meant one of my besties whom I call elephant.

Ever since she stopped being a girl scout I haven’t been able to get cookies!

Yenno those thin minty ones with the chocolate coating?

I was hooked from the first bite.

I remember buying my first box. I savoured them to make them last as long as possible.

Where did my self control go?

Years went by without seeing those little chocolatey gems.

Until…. I saw a recipe on Emily’s blog.

Bless her soul for sharing this delicacy with the world. She created the recipe by herself, isn’t that mind-boggling?

My mind sure is boggled.

These cookies are so goood. Even better than girl scout version (sorry elephant, you’re not offended are you?)

Homemade is always better, that’s what I always say :)

Even my sister, who’s SUPER picky said these were good.

I usually don’t trust testimonials, but trust my sis on this one ok?
