Girl Scout Lovin’

Happy Monday! How happy are you that we are ONE day away from March? Which means we are just weeks away from Spring!!! I hope this makes you as happy as it makes me 🙂

This weekend was extremely busy and filled with food. 6 hours of my Saturday was spent cooking for my Grandma’s birthday. Thankfully I have an amazing boyfriend who helped me out A LOT in the kitchen…until the beer got there 😉 Our menu included : Sesame Ginger Shrimp, Baked Potato Nachos, Pasta A la Vodka Chicken Casserole, French Bread, Spinach – Goat Cheese – Apple – Raisins  & Candied Walnut Salad, Tagalong Cake and S’mores Cookies! I bet you can guess what I wore all day yesterday… Extreme stretchy pants from food overload! Everything turned out perfect which is a plus for you because that means I have recipes to share 🙂

Sunday, I promised the recipe that included TWO boxes of Girl Scout Tagalongs. Chocolate + Peanut Butter = the dangerously delicious most perfect combination ever.

Tagalong Cake


Ingredients

  • 1 box of Devils Food Cake  + ingredients you will need to make this (or make your own)
  • 2 boxes of Girl Scout Tagalong cookies
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 16 oz tub of Cool Whip
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Prepare cake mix as prepared on box
  • Chop 1 box of Tagalongs into small pieces

  • Add them to the batter

  • Pour batter into two greased 8 inch rounds

  • Cook for 3-4 minutes less than recommended on box
  • Remove from oven when toothpick comes out clean
  • Cool completely then remove from rounds to a platter

  • Chop 1/2 of the tagalongs into small pieces from the 2nd box
  • Warm the peanut butter slightly and fold it into half of the tub of cool whip

  • Slowly add 1/4 cup of the powdered sugar and mix well
  • Spread the peanut butter filling between the layers

  • Mix the rest of the cool whip with the remainder of the chopped tagalong cookies and frost the outside of cake.
  • Cut the last of the tagalongs in half and add them to the top of the cake

  • Refrigerate until ready to serve – Serve chilled

Look at the cookie pieces in the cake! I’m not a HUGE fan of chocolate cake but this cake takes the cake. Know what I’m sayin?

This deserves a total foodgasm face.

Next time you see those cute little girls at the grocery store asking you for $5 to buy a sinful treat say yes…and make this cake!

I have a couple more recipes from Saturday to share with you but I’m wrapped up in the Bachelor right now so I will save them for later on this week. Sneak peak…

In case you didn’t know – Tomorrow is National Pancake Day! If you don’t have time to stop by iHOP for your free pancakes then feel free to make one of my recipes… I bet mine taste better anyways 😉
