These are a couple of recipes using Tagalongs (or Peanut Butter Patties) Cookies from the Girl Scout website that I thought looked amazing! Nutty Caramel Turtles and Peanut Butter Trail Mix Fudge! I will be definitely be trying these out when our cookies arrive!
If you haven’t seen any Girl Scouts knocking on your door or seen any at the local grocery store, I am posting my daughter’s store below. (Her troop is saving for a trip next summer to Costa Rica where they will be participating in a Global Community Project.)
These amazing cookies are available online and she will be selling until March 25 ,2019! These cookies will come directly from the bakery to your house! https://digitalcookie.girlscouts.org/scout/madison1827
