This past year, Mazzy joined the Girl Scouts. She was part of a Brownie Troop with a group of girls from her school. This meant that over the spring, Mazzy had her first foray into selling Girl Scout Cookies, waiting for the Girl Scout Cookies to arrive, distributing them to everyone who purchased them and then demolishing the ones we purchased for ourselves within one sitting— I mean, one week.
When Mazzy and Harlow filmed their cookie challenge a few weeks back with Thin Mints, many of you remarked on how crazy it was that we still had Girl Scout cookies hanging around the house at the end of July.
The answer is simple: It was an unclaimed box. We might have distributed the wrong cookies to someone, received an extra box by accident or some other human error may have occurred. In any case, I hung onto the box for awhile in case someone claimed it. They did not. So by summer, I thought it was safe to open.
You can be rest assured, they are ALL GONE NOW.
Thankfully, Pillsbury has come out with a new line of Girl Scout Cookie inspired baking mixes to keep my family well entrenched in the flavors of Thin Mints and Samosas all year long.
Check out Mazzy and Harlow baking Thin Mint cupcakes. Judging by how much batter they ate throughout, I think it’s safe to say that they enjoyed them immensely.
In addition to Thin Mint Cupcake Mix, Pillsbury also sells Thin Mint Brownie Mix, Caramel & Coconut Blondie Mix and Caramel & Coconut Cupcake Mix.
If you buy one of the mixes, be prepared for your kids to demand to bake them IMMEDIATELY. Since I wanted to film Mazzy and Harlow baking them, I was faced with the odd challenge of waiting for the weekend when we could do it during daylight hours. Let’s just say, Mazzy and Harlow were less than patient about it.
If you’d like to win the full collection of Pillsbury’s new Girl Scout inspired mixes including Trefoil shaped silicone cupcake molds and cookie cutters, leave a comment below!
I will pick one winner on August 26th!
Congrats to Andrea, who was a girl scout for 15 years! Please contact annie@mommyshorts,com to claim your prize.
This post was sponsored by Pillsbury, but my kids love of baking Thin Mint cupcakes is their own.
Oh my Lord, where do I begin. OK, I want to make those cupcakes now. LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing their adorable personalities shining thru in those videos. LOVE the video chatter, Harlow holding Mazzy’s hand. AND THAT ENDING. LOL
Seriously, can I come to New York and hang out with your girls? No? Too creepy? I know! The HARLOW AND MAZZY PINKTASTIC WORLD TOUR!!!!
These look amazing! Where can I get the Trefoil-shaped cupcake molds and cookie cutters? They would be great for GG bake sales!
Is this a good baking dress? That was adorable.
Great job girls! Those cupcakes look delicious! My 2 year old loves helping me bake. Love watching videos of your girls! Reminds me so much of my sister and I growing up.
Those look great! In Canada we don’t have thin mint cookies but we always hear how good they are.
Oh. My. Goodness. How yummy!
These would be great to get my 2 year old cooking with me!
YUM! Just in time for my husband’s birthday! I am planning on making him cupcakes that looked like the poop emjoji lol
So cute. I may have just been inspired to let my little one have at baking a cake “on her own”
I love how Harlow doesn’t try to overtake Mazzy but is content letting her sister take the lead and help by holding Mazzy’s arm or allow as she pours. Also impressed with Mazzy’s quick and sincere praise when Harlow successfully followed her directions and dipped the cupcake in the frosting correctly. Such better cooperation than I had with my siblings at that age! And please tell Harlow that she is so cute that any dress she wears is a “good baking dress”.
Cuties! Is Mazzy in Girl Scouting?
I love how kids insist on touching every element of the baking process. The eggs, finger in the baking goo, the tops of the warm cupcakes! I can’t wait for my little one to arrive so I can just roll my eyes and laugh!
Loved Harlow and Mazzy working together !! and of course loved the way they use “you-tube” terminologies… 🙂
Nice job girls! The cupcakes look delicious, and yes I wouldn’t want to wait to bake them either!!!!
That’s a perfect baking dress! Especially for mint cupcakes! Love it!
I’ve seen a couple of baking tutorials from your girls. May I suggest buying them a whisk for the weekend house? It’s easier to incorporate wet and dry ingredients and results in less lumps!
Also, an ice cream scoop is super kid friendly if you are looking to distribute batter or cookie dough **as evenly as possible**.
Martha Stewert ain’t got nothin on these two!
Yes! I love everything Thin Mint and really Girl Scout cookies in general. I’ve been trying to get it in my daughters head that she wants to be a Girl Scout. Is that wrong?
Actually, it’s the perfect baking dress…
My 2.5YO had to watch this 4 times! Your girls are now her YouTube stars. Also, yes, that is a perfect baking dress.
I want to win this! But I live in Malaysia. Will you mail it to me? *fingers crossed* we picked up some Girl Scout cookies when we were in the US in May. It was so hard to hold back from eating all of it in one go!
I just want to visit Mazzy and Harlow to introduce them to my vibrant 6yo son, Hunter! We have been making toy review videos ourselves and he would love your girls, especially Harlow. He has the sweetest soft spot for helping little girls!
I loved this! “there’s not enough because Harlow is eating it!” Even when she took a bite herself. ?? loved the end so much! ????
both of them have such big personalities, and i would definitely eat a whole tray of cupcakes all by myself too!
They are so adorable! And that ending, where the box “disappeared”! Love! ???
Both my family and my Girl Scout troop would love to win that stash!!!!! Where we live, Samoas are called Carmel de lites.
This video is so cute! Thin mints are my favorite, and those cupcakes look amazing. I hope they were enjoyed by everyone!
I love the photos! I’m an avid baker and love having my two year old “help” in the kitchen!
I love watching them in their little home made videos. The last two had me craving thin mints though. LOL.
My husband works with a woman whose two girls are scouts and every year he dutifully buys me several (dozen) cookies when cookie season rolls around. Except this year. And I’m pregnant. And I need thin minty deliciousness in my face. The baby needs it actually. He told me.
Ooo! Love this!
Your girls are just adorable and now I’m seriously in the mood for cupcakes!
The cupcakes look amazing! I’ve been wanting to try these, I’m a Girl Scout cookie addict!
Oh my gosh! Why have I not heard of these before!?
