I’m a hoarder. And I’m not just talking about books (although I do have 234242 of them). Limited edition products produce a firestorm of GOTTA HAVE IT with me.

Since Girl Scout cookies are only available once per year, it’s really more of GOTTA HAVE 10 boxes NOW before they’re gone. However, sometimes even that many doesn’t last all year.

Whether you can’t wait for your thin mints to arrive or are just craving thin mints “off season”, this recipe is for you.
