Confession: I saved my Girl Scout Cookies from last year in hopes I would be inspired to create something with them and wound up throwing them away last week. Shameful, I know, but I wasn’t going to make that mistake again. I’ve wanted to make an ice box cake for awhile (basically chocolate wafers, Cool Whip, and a lot of patience). But instead of wafers and 12 hours, I had lots of Girl Scout cookies and 12 minutes. So, I made a quick adaptation of an ice box cake that doesn’t need to sit in the fridge overnight. You’re getting both a Samoa and a Tagalong version here.

It's really as simple as that! These no-ice-box ice box cakes need to be in your hands (and your mouth) immediately.
