Valley chefs use Girl Scout cookies in local dessert challenge

PHOENIX - It's Girl Scout cookie season.

The Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus Pine Council (GSACPC), along with several Valley chefs, are hosting a "Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge!" It's the first contest of its kind.

Local chefs were assigned one of the troop's six Girl Scout cookies and then the chefs were tasked with creating a tasty dessert to serve in their restaurant. The desserts will be available from Feb. 1 through Feb. 28.

A portion of the proceeds will help benefit Camp Sombrero.

Blue Wasabi - Girl Scout Cookie Roll:

Ingredients:

2 Fruit Roll Ups (full size)

3 Rice Krispie treat squares

8 Samoas cookies

6 Trefoils cookies

Whip cream can

Caramel sauce

Chocolate sauce

Strawberry puree sauce

Preparation: Lay fruit roll ups down overlapping the shorter sides by 1/2 inch. Unwrap Rice Krispie treats and place in microwave for 20 seconds. Push Rice Krispie treats down onto the Fruit Roll Up and spread them onto the Fruit Roll Up into one even lay r so no Fruit Roll Up is showing. Turn upside down so the Rice Krispie treat is on the cutting board and the Fruit Roll Up is facing up. Break four Samoas in half and lay them down, overlapping just a little bit in one line lengthwise across the Fruit Roll Up. Break three Trefoils into pieces and lay them on top of the Samoas. Roll the rollup to look like a sushi roll. Break four Samoas in half and lay them across the top of the roll. Use a sushi rolling mat to crimp the roll into shape and push the Samoas down into the top. Cut into 9 pieces. Place the roll lengthwise on a plate with each piece offset slightly from the one ahead of it. Place a dollop of whip cream on each piece and generously drizzle caramel, chocolate and strawberry puree on top of the roll. Crunch up remaining Trefoils and sprinkle cookie crumbles on top of the roll.
