Last week we told you about the hotel doing wine pairings with Girl Scout Cookies (brilliant, Auberge Du Soleil!). This week we're bringing it back to the sugar with two more examples of hotels taking Girl Scout Cookie season beyond the boxes you can't keep your mitts out of.
The first is at Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort Golf Club And Spa, where two new Girl Scout-inspired desserts have hit the menu: the Thin Mint Chocolate Mousse (pictured above), made from the best-selling mint flavored, dark chocolate-covered cookie, and a Girl Scout Cookie Cheesecake. Ohhh yes.
The mousse features not one but three cookie flavors: Shout Out cookie crust, Samoa cookie cheesecake filling and a with Dulce de Leche cookie crumble topping. Best of all, a portion of proceeds go to local Girl Scout groups, so you can gorge guilt-free!

It's the most
annoying wonderful time of the year when irresistible little Girl Scouts set up shop everywhere you go selling their delicious Girl Scout cookies. (We confess, we gave into a box of Samoas outside a Bed & Bath last week).)
But now thanks to Kris Margerum, the wine director at Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley, you can make chowing down those cookies a little more "adult"-like thanks to his inventive wine pairings. Yes, Girl Scout cookies and wine. Delightful!
Combing the hotel's extensive 17,000-bottle wine cellar, Margerum came up with the following pairings for these Girl Scout cookies:
· Trefoils-Old Fashioned Shortbread: Margerum recommends pairing the cookies with the 2007 Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine. Tasting Note: "The creamy richness of the shortbread is balanced by the fresh lively notes of the Sparkling Wine."
