Girl Scout Cookie® Championship
Food Network and Girl Scouts of the USA have teamed up to celebrate one of the most-anticipated times of year with Girl Scout Cookie® Championship – a four-episode primetime event that captures the country’s obsession with the iconic cookies. Cookies are only available for a few short months each year, making Girl Scout Cookie® season a nationwide phenomenon.
Edible Cookie Art
Hosted by Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), each episode challenges five accomplished bakers to transform Girl Scout Cookies® into show-stopping edible pieces of art. Viewers will also be taken behind-the-scenes for an up-close look at how the treats are made.

Judges Nacho Aguirre and Katie Lee are joined by a rotating third judge, including panelist Carla Hall, to ultimately determine which competitor made the most stunning creation. The results include a giant double barrel toasted marshmallow cake made with Girl Scout S’mores®, a ten-layer Do-si-do®/Peanut Butter Sandwich red velvet globe cake complete with peanut butter buttercream, and Thin Mints® are transformed into a three-tiered blueberry mint glacier cake. Girl Scout® alums Hannigan, Lee, and Hall are joined by current Girl Scouts® each week. The series kicks off Monday, February 3rd, 2020 at 8pm.
“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.”
“We’re excited to celebrate Girl Scout Cookie® season with Food Network!” said Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. “These beloved treats are part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—each purchase helps girls learn important business skills and have impactful leadership experiences. As Girl Scout Cookie® Championship shows, there are many exciting things girls do in Girl Scouts®, from the cookie program to space exploration to outdoor adventures to incredible travel opportunities. There’s something for every girl!”
“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.”
Competitors Must Sell Their Creations
In each episode, five talented bakers go head-to-head to determine who will be named Girl Scout Cookie® champion. The competitors must make a large amount of creative and delicious treats using Girl Scout Cookies®. Then flexing their business skills they must tap into their inner entrepreneur and sell their creations, just like Girl Scouts® do. The sweets are tested by host Alyson Hannigan, the judges, and a crowd of hungry tasters who decide who stays and who goes. The remaining contestants must then make a themed creation that transforms Girl Scout Cookies® into an edible masterpiece. Only the most impressive baker is left standing.
