Chocolate Thin Mint Supreme Pizza

Chocolate Thin Mint Pizza Supreme

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (18 oz.) refrigerated chocolate chunk cookie dough
  • 1/2 pkg. (19 cookies) Girl Scout Thin Mints
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Instructions:

Press cookie dough evenly in the bottom of an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. (Dough will barely cover the pan.) Break Thin Mints into halves or thirds; press cookie pieces into dough, covering evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Place white chocolate morsels into a small self-closing bag. Microwave the bag of morsels on MEDIUM HIGH (70% power) for 40 to 50 seconds or until melted. Snip one corner (about 1/8 inch) off the bottom of the bag. Hold bag tightly at top and drizzle white chocolate stripes over top of pizza. When cool, cut pizza into 8 or 10 wedges. If desired, top each serving with a scoop of ice cream.

Makes:8 to 10 servings

History of Women Inspiring Girls

Girl Scouts of Central California South’s Women Inspiring Girls awards honors dynamic women who have distinguished themselves through exemplary achievements in the community, in their professions, and as role models for girls. This annual event was started in 2009 and has so far honored 27 trail-blazing women from Fresno and Kern Counties, women who have inspired their communities to try a bit harder, to reach a bit further, and to believe in themselves.

Girl Scouts from grades K-12 play a major part in the running the event and in its production; they are in charge of the flag ceremony, they act as Mistresses of Ceremony, and they provide entertainment that increases guests’ knowledge of the value of Girl Scouting. In doing so, they improve their presentation skills and learn teamwork while building their self-confidence.[break] [break] Women Inspiring Girls Patch! This patch is for girls who have been part of our Women Inspiring Girls luncheons in Fresno and Bakersfield. This girl-led event prepares Girl Scouts for their leadership roles of the future. Girls manage the flag ceremony, lead the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the national Anthem, present the honorees, tell their personal stories and are the Mistresses of Ceremony at this event. They learn public speaking, professionalism and teamwork. [break][break]

How are the honorees selected?

A call for nominations is sent out to the local community through the media and Girl Scout communications. A selection panel of past honorees and community leaders meets to review the nominations submitted and three women are selected based on the award’s criteria.

[break]

What is the criteria?

• Service to the community and making a difference in people’s lives

• Being a role model for girls

• Overcoming obstacles to attain goals

• Outstanding leadership qualities

• Being known as a leader in her area of expertise

 [break]

What does this award mean?

Women Inspiring Girls are women who embody and personify the mission of Girl Scouts of being women of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. These luncheons provide funding for the Girl Scouts Connect Program which every year gives more than 5,000 local girls the chance to become Girl Scouts, learn values and practical life skills, and realize their full potential.
