Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge 2017

From February 1 to February 28, Valley chefs have partnered with the Local Girl Scout Council to create innovative and delicious desserts using Girl Scout Cookies.

Their mission – use their culinary prowess to re-imagine one of the beloved flavors of Girl Scout cookies into a custom dessert menu item. Each restaurant has agreed to feature its dessert on its menu from February 1 to February 28, 2017, with a portion of the proceeds from each dessert sold directly supporting Girl Scouting and the local Council in our community.

Your mission – taste them all!
