Parallel Post is thrilled to debut their limited-time-only dessert menu featuring the iconic Girl Scout cookie collection by working together with Girl Scouts of Connecticut. For the first time in Parallel Post’s history, an exclusive dessert menu will be prepared with Girl Scout Samoas®, Thin Mints®,Do-Si-Dos®, and Trefoils®. To commemorate the kick off of the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie season, Parallel Post’s Executive Chef Chris Molyneux and Pastry Chef Madelyn Rendon teamed up to conceptualize and perfect recipes to best accentuate the unmatched sugar, chocolate, caramel, coconut and mint flavorings of select Girl Scout Cookies.
“We are delighted that Parallel Post has conceptualized our cookies in such an original way,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “We are especially honored for their support in purchasing these cookies from our girls as they continue with this special dessert menu through February. Those dining at Parallel Post will not only get a sweet treat, but will learn more about what the Cookie Program gives girls – the skills she needs to thrive, succeed, and become a young entrepreneur!”
In addition to Parallel Post’s existing dessert menu offerings, the exclusive Girl Scout Cookie-inspired dessert options (priced at $5) will include the Raspberry SwirlCheesecake made with Trefoils® Girl Scout Cookies, a raspberry-infused cheesecake with a Trefoils® crumb crust; Trifle made with Samoas® Girl Scout Cookies, a layered white chocolate custard garnished with Samoas®, whipped cream and a dash of chocolate sauce; and the Banana Cream Pie made with Do-Si-Dos® Girl Scout Cookies, an old-fashioned favorite dessert prepared with a Do-Si-Dos® pie crust topped with vanilla whipped cream and sprinkled with toasted coconut flakes. A fourth option for those seeking a lighter treat can cool off with the Ice Cream Sundae made with Thin Mints® Girl Scout Cookies, a vanilla bean ice cream sundae sprinkled with chopped Thin Mints® (priced at $4).
As avid supporters of the local community, Parallel Post is honored to support Girl Scouts of Connecticut and to celebrate their statewide initiative of empowering girls through business and leadership skills. This limited engagement menu series of jaw dropping desserts will be available through Saturday, February 28. However, Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s cookie season won’t officially end until the end of March. Don’t forget to support your local troop!
