Slideshow: 7 Fun Things To Do With Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookie Banana Split

What do you do when you only have a few cookies left? Stir them into ice cream for a monster-sized banana split. We mixed Thin Mints into mint chocolate chip, Tagalongs into chocolate, Do-Si-Dos into butter pecan, and Savannah Smiles into vanilla. You'll need four cookies each, chopped fine, for two large scoops of each flavor ice cream. (Let the ice cream soften slightly before mixing.) Stud ripe bananas with coconutty Samoas, and top the whole thing with crumbled Trefoils (they're awesome if you toast them for five to ten minutes). Whipped cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and candied cherries are, of course, mandatory.
Tagalong S'mores

If you don't have access to a campfire, carefully use a brulée torch or the flame from a gas stove to toast your marshmallow. Stack a square of chocolate on a Tagalong, then add the gooey marshmallow and top layer Tagalong. The cookies' creamy peanut butter filling will likely convince you never to go back to non-peanut butter s'mores again.

Thin Mint Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwich

The Thin Mint Mint Chip ice cream sandwich is a no-brainer. Use a melon baller to get a mini scoop, and be careful not to let it slide off the chocolate-glazed cookie. Also try chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two Tagalongs.
Samoa Pie Crust

Graham cracker crusts? Been there, done that. What about a crust made from crushed Samoas? This chocolate-coconut-caramel vessel may just be the best thing to happen to your pie since ice cream a la mode.

Trefoil Banana Pudding

We may have an unhealthy obsession with banana pudding, but there's no denying it's the perfect answer to your leftover box of Trefoils. The simple shortbread cookies easily take the place of Nilla Wafers in this creamy banana treat.
