Girl Scout Knock Off Cookies

What a wonderful time of year...
it's the perfect temperature outside,
the house is filled with gorgeous spring colors
and Girl Scout Cookies are in!

I place the same order every year:
Caramel Delights
Thin Mints
Tagalongs

So, after we ate our last cookie I started thinking about copy cat recipes...
I found a TON of Ritz Cracker Cookies to mimic the Tagalongs.
They swore they tasted just like them...well, they lied! It's good, but it's not a Tagalong.

Then, I was perusing the cookie/cracker isle when it hit me - 
Why couldn't I use Nilla Wafers?

Here's my version of the super yummy Girl Scout Cookies!


You will need:


1 box of Nilla Wafers
1/2 cup Peanut Butter {I used crunchy, but smooth would be great!}
1/4 cup Powder Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp. Honey
16 oz. of your favorite Chocolate

In a bowl, add peanut butter, vanilla and honey - beat with a mixer until combined. Slowly add powder sugar until well incorporated. 


Lay out 48 Nilla Wafers on some parchment paper and smooth an equal amount of the peanut butter mixture on the rounded side of each cookie. 


In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate by microwaving it in 30 second increments {be sure to stir after each} until completely melted. Dip each cookie until completely covered in chocolate and place back on the parchment paper. Wait until they've dried and enjoy!


What a super easy, no-bake recipe!! They are a wee bit smaller than the Girl Scout version, but that just means we can eat 2 ... or 3! Because, they're FAB-UUU-LOUS
