Girl Scout Inspired Baking Mixes

Delicious, EASY Samoas Blondies

I am obsessed with Girl Scout® Cookies.

If you’ve been around Something Swanky for enough years, you know this about me. Nearly every spring for the past several years (excluding the year I was crazy pregnant and the year I was crazy-baby-sleep-deprived) I’ve dedicated nearly an entire month to Girl Scout® Cookie inspired recipes. A whole week for Thin Mint® recipes, a whole week for Caramel Coconut recipes, and a whole week for Tagalong recipes.

Y’all. My love for Girl Scout® cookies runs deep and true.

Need more proof? Allow me to present exhibit A.

☝????THAT is the face of pure childhood joy.

Because when you’re 10 and at Girl Scout® camp, soap in a pair of nylons tied to a tree is the funniest thing on the planet. End of story. ????????????

So when these Pillsbury™ Girl Scout® Inspired baking mixes made an appearance at Walmart, I threw them into my cart without hesitation.

Em and I decided to make the Caramel & Coconut Blondies together, and we had a blast.

Side note: box mixes + kids in the kitchen is really just the most ideal situation. Especially if you’re working with a kid who is just learning how to read. Have you ever really stopped to appreciate the illustrations of the ingredients on the box instructions?? Try letting a 6 year old help out, and you’ll see the brilliance.

Delicious, EASY Samoas Blondies

These Pillsbury™ Girl Scout® Inspired baking mixes are easy to use, delicious to eat, and turn out beautifully. Emma loved getting to help in the kitchen, and the whole family enjoyed eating them! And it was a fun trip down memory road for me. We even dug out some of my old Girl Scout® photos to show Emma (she got a kick out the soap in nylons too ????).

If you want a glimpse into our afternoon with these delicious blondies, you’re in luck. We made a short video for your viewing pleasure:
