If you’re getting a little sick of eating those cookies in their natural state, we’ve got just the thing for you: 19 ways to transform those little treats into, well, more treats!

1. Samosa Waffles with Coconut Caramel Sauce: It’s the breakfast of champions. And by champions, we mean the people who love Girl Scout cookies (basically, everyone). (via Domestic Fits)

2. Thin Mint Cupcakes: It’s just too cute for words. (via Ingredients of a 20 Something)

3. Tagalong Cake Bars: The only way to make Tagalongs better might be to combine them with cake. Oh my ‘lanta! (via Kevin + Amanda)

4. Thai Peanut Chicken with a Do-Si-Do Crust: Bet you didn’t see this coming! Do-si-dos actually make excellent crusts for Thai chicken recipes. Make it for a party and ask your guests to guess what’s in it ;) (via PDX Food Love)

5. Savannah Smiles Lemon Blueberry Parfait: How beautiful is this? Plus, it’s light and refreshing. (via Knox News)

6. Cherry Cheesecake With a Trefoil Crust: We love tiny desserts, and these are some of the best cheesecakes we’ve ever seen. Trefoils make excellent crusts for all desserts. (via The Gazette)

7. Thank U Berry Munch Granola: This granola might make repeat appearances at our breakfast table for the next few weeks. Just sayin’. (via Little Brownie Bakers)

8. Samoas Popsicles: Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better! With warmer weather ahead, we can’t help but imagine a sunny day on the beach with these beauties. (via My Baking Addiction)

13. Savannah Smiles Frozen Lemonade Tarts: These frozen lemonade tarts would also be great during summer (it’s coming, we promise!!). Those striped straws only make them more appealing. (via The Old Hen)

14. Three Layer Ice Cream Cake With Thin Mint Crumbs: The base of this recipe isn’t a Girl Scout Cookie, but we love the idea of using them as crumbs on top of all desserts. Not sure about you, but we definitely would have wanted this delicious cake at our eighth birthdays. Or our 28th. Whatever. (via Playing with Flour)

15. Samoas Cheesecake Bites: Samoas are my personal favorite cookie, so I practically jumped out of my seat when I found this recipe. Tiny dessert + Samoas + me = eternal happiness. (via Angie’s Sweet Natured Treats)
