I’ve already eaten all the Girl Scout cookies we bought. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if

  1. We didn’t buy them from the neighborhood Kid and
  2.  twice from the Scouts selling at our local supermarket

Opps!

Tagalongs

My favorite girl scout cookies have always been tagalongs. The chocolate peanut butter combination is irresistible!

My homemade version starts with a crunchy shortbread cookies. Then they are topped with sweetened peanut butter, before being dipped in rich milk chocolate.
