Though I am being compensated for this post, all opinions are my own. I am sharing this post on behalf my my affiliation with the Mom it Forward Blogger Network.
When I was growing up I was in Girl Scouts. I used to have so much fun in Girl Scouts and always looked forward to seeing my friends from Girl Scouts every week. I was in Girl Scout from the time I was in Kindergarten until I was 15.
The cookies were always one of my favorite parts of Girl Scouts. I loved selling the cookies and delivering cookies to everyone. My mom was the cookie mom and we always had boxes and boxes of cookies in our garage until our troop sold them all. It was inevitable that we always bought extras because we finished all of ours and because they were so tempting.
I learned so many life skills when I was in the Girl Scouts. I learned about leadership skills, helping the community, and it also taught me independence. I remember standing in the local mall, trying to sell Girl Scout cookies, which also taught me to work really hard. We sold cookie so that our troop could earn money for trips. When I was older I got to go to Savannah and Boston for a week. I really love the skills that I learned in the Girl Scouts and if I have a daughter someday I hope that she gets involved.
National Cookie Weekend takes place starting this weekend, February 7, 2014. The Girl Scouts are even hosting a premiere event in New York City on February 7. You can go to the Girl Scout website and find out where cookies will be sold near you. There is also a Girl Scouts Cookie Championship Sweepstakes.
My favorite cookies were always Samoas, Tagalongs, and Thin Mints. The cookie I like the best, though is Samoas. I love the chocolate and caramel combined with the coconut. I always buy extra Samoas every year and freeze them so that I can bake with them and eat them as the year goes by. I had some extra Samoas in my freezer so I decided to make some Samoa Brownie Truffles.
The Samoa Truffle Brownies were so delicious and easy to make. They are started off by making a regular box of brownies according to the directions on the box. Then you add a Samoa truffle mixture on top, and chocolate to top it all off. The Samoa truffle is made using crushed Samoa cookies and cream cheese.
These brownies were so delicious. I love the taste of the Samoa cookies with the brownies. The chocolate on top adds more deliciousness. I definitely recommend that you make these tasty brownies. Go buy some Girl Scout cookies and make these brownies. You won’t regret it!
