The Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge is BACK and BETTER than ever!

February 1–28

The award-winning challenge is back for its eighth year. After taking a break in February 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) is pleased to present the return of the Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge, which will take place February 1-28, 2022. 

In this friendly competition among esteemed Arizona chefs, venues throughout central and northern Arizona go head-to-head to create a winning dessert with one of these Girl Scout Cookie flavors: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, or Lemon-Ups. The participating chefs use their culinary prowess to re-imagine these classic Girl Scout Cookies into a delicious dessert and feature it on their menu throughout the entire month of February. Best of all – a portion of the proceeds support Girl Scouting in Arizona!   

Cookie fans will vote for the winner! Girl Scout Cookie fans and restaurant patrons will vote for their favorite dessert, helping us crown a champion in the central and northern regions of Arizona! Voting will take place throughout the Challenge, and the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge Champions will be announced once the votes are tallied in early March.
