Why this Recipe Works:

  • The combination of the tender cracker, creamy peanut butter, and sweet chocolate makes for the perfect blend of flavors and textures.
  • Using only 3 simple ingredients, this is one of the easiest cookie recipes ever.
  • This recipe calls for classic “buttery” crackers as the base, so no need to bake up your own cookie bases.
  • These cookies are so much fun to make with your family!

Do these cookies taste like Tagalongs?

  • Yes! Even though the base is a cracker, that chocolate and peanut butter combo adds enough flavor and sweetness that you’d never suspect it.  These three ingredients together really are the perfect match for a cookie – you have to trust me on this one!

What Girl Scout cookies are vegan?

The only one guaranteed to be vegan each and every time would be the Thin Mints. However, in some regions, ABC Bakers make some of the cookies, so be on the lookout for all of these vegan options:

If your local Girl Scouts do not sell any of the above flavors other than Thin Mints, (such as the case where I live), then you can order them by clicking on the cookie titles above.

How to Make 3-Ingredient Vegan Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies:

1. Add a heaping teaspoon of creamy peanut butter to the surface of 15 – 18 crackers and set them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper.

2. Then, melt your chocolate in either a double boiler, or, in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. If using a double boiler, transfer your chocolate to a small cereal-sized bowl once it’s completely melted.

3. To coat your crackers with chocolate, hover a fork over the bowl about an inch away from the chocolate. Use your less dominate hand to do this.  Then, carefully place one cracker on the fork tines and use your dominate hand to cover the surface of the cracker with chocolate using a spoon. Once coated, use the side of the spoon to scrape away any excess chocolate dripping from the bottom of the fork.

4. Carefully transfer the chocolate covered cracker back to the baking sheet and then repeat this process with the remaining crackers.

5. Allow the chocolate to completely harden at room temperature for 60 minutes, or, for a treat you can enjoy quicker, place your baking sheet in either your freezer for 4-5 minutes or your fridge for about 10 minutes. You’ll know they’re ready when the chocolate is matte rather than shiny.

6. The cookies can be left out at room temperature, or, in the fridge or freezer from this point on.

Top Tips for Making 3-Ingredient Vegan Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies:

  • If your peanut butter is extra runny, put the crackers and peanut butter in the freezer for a couple of minutes before beginning the chocolate-dipping process.
  • If you’re feeling creative or unconventional, go ahead and add some sprinkles or colored sugar to your chocolate covered cookies. This is especially fun to do for holidays or parties!
  • If you’re leaving your cookies out of the fridge or freezer, be sure to leave them in a cool place – the chocolate will melt if it’s too warm.
  • I find that this recipe goes best with peanut butter, but if you can’t eat peanuts, I bet sunflower butter would be delicious as well!
  • When shopping for peanut butter, look for a type that only has peanuts and salt listed on the ingredients list.
