It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Girl Scout cookie season! As an added bonus to these delicious, diet-breaking cookies, the Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge is back for another year!

For the fifth year, chefs from some of the Phoenix area’s most popular restaurants will use their culinary prowess to reimagine one of the beloved flavors of Girl Scout cookies — Do-Si-Dos, Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Trefoils, S’mores and Savannah Smiles – into a custom dessert menu item.

Each dessert sells until the end of the month and a portion of proceeds benefits the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council.

To share your own dessert creations – or photos of you and your family enjoying any of the chefs’ creations – simply tag your social media posts with @GSACPC and #dessertchallenge.

While you’re Instagraming these delicious desserts, head on over to our Instagram (@WhereShouldWeEat) and enter to win a gift card to try one of these yourself!
