Cookie Dessert Challenge


7th Annual Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge 

February 1–29, 2020

The award-winning challenge is back for its 7th year in a row. In this friendly competition among esteemed Arizona chefs, over 35 venues throughout central and northern Arizona will go head-to-head to create a winning dessert with one of these Girl Scout Cookie flavors - Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos or Trefoils. Chefs use their culinary prowess to re-imagine these classic Girl Scout Cookies into a delicious dessert menu item and feature it on their menu throughout the entire month of February. Best of all – a portion of the proceeds supports Girl Scouting in Arizona!

Cast your vote! Returning this year is your chance to help us decide which will be the winning dessert creations in the Central and Northern regions of Arizona! During the challenge, you’ll get to vote on your favorite dessert and the one with the most votes in each of Central and Northern Arizona at the end of the challenge will be crowned 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge Champions in early March. Voting platform and information will go live on Feb. 1, 2020.
