Participating restaurants and their creations include Double Chocolate Thin Mint Cookie Mousse at 32 Shea; Banana Trefoil Puddin' at Bink's Midtown, Bink's Scottsdale, and Café Bink's; Tagalong Shortbread at CHoP; Samoa Cookie Gelato at Gelato Spot; Samoa Decadence at Rusconi's; and Bruleed Salted Chocolate Tart with Somoa Cookie Crust at Second Story Liquor Bar. A portion of the proceeds from each dessert will benefit Girl Scout's Camp Sombrero in south Phoenix.
