Who doesn’t love Girl Scout Cookies? I came across this recipe at the Just 4U Creative Cake Design and Celebration Expo. The Girl Scouts sponsored a vendor table there, selling boxes of their famous cookies, along with this recipe. I tasted a sample (or three) and was hooked, so I had to try the recipe at home. Wow, these sure are tasty, but beware that they are exceptionally sweet!
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup of chocolate chips
½ cup of creamy peanut butter
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
10-12 Girl Scout Peanut Butter Pattie Cookies, crumbled
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a 9” x 13” pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix cake mix, butter and egg until a soft dough forms.
- Spread the dough in bottom of the pan.
- Top with chocolate chips.
- Combine peanut butter and milk in a separate bowl, and then spread it on top of the dough.
- Top with crumbled cookies.
- Bake 23-25 minutes.
- Cool completely. Cut and enjoy.
Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:
- I lined my pan with non-stick aluminum foil, so I did not use the non-stick cooking spray – the bars didn’t stick.
- This recipe yields very, very sweet bars. If you don’t like super sweet treats (like me), then consider using less chocolate chips or unsweetened condensed milk. Also, cut these bars into small bite-size servings, so as not to overwhelm the taste buds!
Yield: 20-30 bars, depending on the size of each bar
