Another awesome feature this year is that during OC Restaurant Week – which happens to be the last week that Girl Scout Cookies will be available on sale in Orange County until 2016 – select restaurants will offer delicious desserts inspired by and featuring Girl Scout Cookies! Some of the OC Restaurant Week participating restaurants are even hosting local Girl Scouts for a Preview Tasting, where girls will get the chance to taste the sweet treats and meet with the restaurant’s chef – all important as many of them strive to earn culinary and business badges.
Featured desserts include:
–Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurants – Lemonades Cookie Cream Soda
–Maro Wood Grill – Girl Scout Cookie Crunch Sundae with Gluten-Free Trios Crumble
–Pascal – Thin Mints Mousse Cake
–Paul Martin’s American Grill – Homemade Ice Cream with Assorted Girl Scout Cookies
–Provenance – “Girl Scouts Rock” – Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mousse Torte with Gluten-Free Trios Cookie Crust
–Slapfish – Caramel deLites Chipwich with Thin Mints-studded Ice Cream
–Slater’s 50/50 – Peanut Butter Patties Push Pops and Caramel deLites Push Pops
–Sundried Tomato American Bistros and Catering – Lemonades Cookie Sandwich
In 2015, new Gluten-Free Trios were added to the traditional cookie lineup. These Girl Scout Cookies feature chocolate chips nestled in a gluten-free peanut butter oatmeal cookie. Meet all the cookies here: http://www.girlscouts.org/program/gs_cookies/meet_the_cookies.asp.
