Can’t get enough of those irresistible Girl Scout Cookies? Now there’s a show that will give you even more reasons to stock up this season.
Food Network’s new Girl Scout Cookie Championship will pit bakers in the ultimate cookie-inspired challenge. The competition show, which is hosted by Alyson Hannigan, will ask competitors to create desserts based on America’s favorite cookies, like Thin Mints and Samoas.
In each episode, five contestants go head-to-head creating stunning edible art in order to name the ultimate champion. “We are all obsessed with Girl Scout Cookies – from Thin Mints to Shortbread/Trefoils, everyone has their favorite,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network. “Watching these talented artists transform the beloved cookies into mind-blowing masterpieces makes for a fun, fast-paced show for the whole family.”
Hannigan along with two of the judges, Katie Lee and Carla Hall, are former Girl Scouts themselves. “I’m thrilled to be hosting Girl Scout Cookie Championship,” said Hannigan. “The creativity and expertise of these bakers is amazing and the cookies themselves bring back so many childhood memories – I can’t wait to share the show with my girls.”
The gorgeous presentations are sure to inspire some creativity in home kitchens as well. Luckily, the show premieres right in the heart of cookie season so you can stock up before you watch. The series kicks off on Food Network Feb. 3 at 8pm.
Fans can get in on the action at home by following Food Network and Hannigan on social media where judges will share their favorite cookies and you can take the Girl Scout Cookie quiz to see if you can identify these famous treats.
