In my world, Girl Scout cookie season is a semi-official holiday. My nieces have all horribly disappointed me by not joining so I can get my cookie fix, but luckily I have friends whose girls sell them. I always buy a ridiculous number of them because they freeze well, but I still end up running out months before I can have more. While that is probably best for my waistline, it doesn’t make me happy.

It looks like there might be a solution here. Sure, this is marketed for kids, but whatever… I have quite a collection of things that are marketed for kids and I don’t feel the least bit bad about it. The Girl Scout Cookie Oven works on the same principles as the Easy Bake Oven, with a heating element that is actually a light bulb. Well, it’s probably something else now since regular light bulbs have been banned, but I’m sure it’s similar. Just put your tray of dough inside, let it cook, and out comes a reasonable facsimile of your favourite treat.

The starter kit comes with a baking pan, spatula, and measuring tool as well as a Thin Mints cookie mix. They also sell mixes separately so you can make PB Sandwich, Trefoils, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Sugar and Oatmeal (these may be called something else depending on where you live). The oven itself not only has a heating chamber with a viewing window, but also a warming station so you can melt the frostings and coatings.

The Girl Scout Cookie Oven is supposed to hit stores this fall, at a cost of $59.99 US. Each additional cookie mix will run $6.99 to $14.99 US. I’m pretty sure Wicked Cool Toys is going to end up with a great deal of my money in the near future… and heaven help the kid who gets between me and my cookies!
