Sure, they are fabulous out of hand or straight out of the freezer (frozen Thin Mints are to cookies as Taylor Swift is to pop music — an unstoppable force). However, once you get down to the dregs and there are just a few cookie crumbles left, it seems sacrilegious to throw them away. So, don't. Here are a few ideas (using other cookies, but Girl Scout cookies stand in shockingly well for any other brand) to get you started.

1. Rim your favorite beverage

There's no reason to go alcoholic when you have Samoas lining your iced coffee — that's a natural buzz.

2. Add to other cookies and baked goods

Swap out other cookies for Tagalongs and watch these brownies disappear.

3. Make inferior cake garnishes totally obsolete

Don't even bother about icing those tricky bottom edges of your cake. Just lay that slice atop some buttery Trefoil crumbs and call it a day.

4. Make the parfait of your dreams

How can any other cookie ever compare to our Holy Lady of Thin Mint-ness?

5. Add to oatmeal, quinoa or other breakfast cereals

It's like giving your standard breakfast jazz hands.

6. Repurpose into cake ball or truffle coating

Or, go crazy and roll frozen spheres of peanut butter ice cream in Do-si-do cookie crumbs for a peanut butter addict's dream.

Look back at the history of Girl Scout cookies:
