Make Your Own Girl Scout Cookies at Home: Recipes for Families

Time for a cookie quiz. What's the top-selling variety of Girl Scout cookies? Yup, you guessed it, Thin Mints! Of all the types of cookies the Girl Scouts offer, Thin Mints account for 25 percent of sales. The next favorite? Samoas at 19 percent. Also on the list of top five favorites: Tagalongs (13 percent), Do-si-dos (11 percent) and Trefoils (9 percent). Already run out of Girl Scout cookies? You can make your favorite at home.

Homemade Thin Mint Cookies

You can make your own Thin Mint cookies at home using this recipe from Baking Bites. The crisp, chocolately cookies are dipped into smooth semi-sweet chocolate chips melted in butter. My suggestion? Make a double or triple batch!

Thin Mint Truffles

These no-bake Thin Mint truffles from Cookin' Cowgirl are easy to make. Simply whip together Thin Mints with cream cheese in a food processor. Mold the chocolate mixture in a bowl and then dip in melted mint chocolate. Try to eat just one!

Homemade Samoas

If Samoas are your favorite Girl Scout cookie, try this recipe from Just a Taste. Create buttery, shortbread cookies and then top them with caramel-soaked coconut. Finish off each cookie with a chocolate bottom and a drizzling of chocolate on top.

Samoas Cupcakes

Instead of eating a cookie, why not have a whole cupcake? These Samoas cupcakes from Sweet Pea's Kitchen have a chocolate base and a caramel frosting. The final touch is toasted coconut and a smattering of melted chocolate.

Homemade Tagalongs

You can make these mock Tagalong cookies from Pantry Chef in minutes. Here's how: Smear a dollop of peanut butter in between two butter crackers, like Ritz. Dip each cracker sandwich into melted chocolate.

Homemade Do-si-dos

Do-si-dos are another peanut butter best-seller from the Girl Scouts. You can make your own Do-si-dos at home by following this recipe from Mrs. Happy Homemaker. Each sandwich is made up of two cookies with peanut butter in the middle. The creamy filling is a mix of peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and whipping cream.
