Am I the only one with a half dozen boxes of Girl Scout cookies sitting around begging to be eaten?
I’d like to think no. I was a Girl Scout when I was younger (a Daisy, then a Brownie, then a Junior), so I’m all for supporting the girls. Even if I hadn’t been, I love all that they stand for. Soooo, yes, Mikey and I got $40 in Girl Scout cookies this year. That doesn’t seem like too much until you realize they’re only like $4.50 a box… I’m not exactly sick of eating them on their own, but adding them to a blizzard makes them approximately 800x yummier—it’s science.
Samoas were always my favorite Girl Scout cookie. I was never really big on the Thin Mints like most others. I like them, but I’d prefer 75% of the other cookie options over them. Plus, in my book, coconut + chocolate + caramel beats chocolate + mint ANY DAY.
So, what’s the deal with these blizzards? The base is actually vegan, which is actually quite fitting seeing as Dairy Queen Blizzard bases are dairy-free, too! Did you know that? Actually, pretty much every fast-food place that has soft serve serves it dairy-free. I just think it’s funny that it’s DAIRY Queen sans “dairy.”
Buuut anyways, the base of these is coconut milk (unlike the real version which is a whole lot of things you probably can’t pronounce). It’s totally fitting since were mixing in coconut cookies, dontcha think? Plus, I cannot even tell you how creamy this is…it almost looked like soft serve before I even churned it!
Aside from the obvious addition of Samoas, there is also swirls of chocolate ganache mixed through. It’s pretty incredible. I also coated the glasses n Salted Vanilla Bean Caramel before I poured in the blizzard, and then extra Samoa pieces and more caramel finishes it off. These are outrageous. They are decadent and beautiful and perfect and once you try it you’ll understand why I can’t shut up.
