PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Today is the last day for Good Morning Arizona's sweet features of desserts for the Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge. For the second year in a row, chefs from more than 30 restaurants in the Valley and Flagstaff will use their culinary prowess to re-imagine one of the beloved flavors of Girl Scout cookies - Do-Si-Dos, Samoas Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Trefoils, and new flavor Rah Rah Raisins - into a custom dessert menu item.

Each restaurant has agreed to feature its dessert on its menu from Feb. 1 to Feb. 28, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the transformation of the local Council's Camp Sombrero to a Leadership Center for Girls and Women.

Every day this week, Good Morning Arizona is welcoming on one of the participating local restaurants to give us a taste of their creation and welcome viewers to come taste it for themselves!

Today, Heather Thornton from the Girl Scouts along with Josh Bracher, chef at both The Gelato Spot and The Second Story in Scottsdale, joined Good Morning Arizona. Bracher made his custom dessert for Second Story, Bruleed Salted Chocolate Tart with Somoa cookie crust Chantilly cream. He also shared his second dessert challenge entry, a Samoa Cookie Gelato.
