A program designed to tempt your taste buds, Destin Desserts showcases the talents of local chefs featuring Girl Scout cookies as the main ingredient. Now in its fourth year, seven local chefs, representing six area businesses, will create delectable desserts and compete for the title of Destin Desserts Champion. All attending the event have the opportunity to vote for their favorite dessert. Guests are provided with one of a kind desserts to sample and can also bid on unique products and services from the area on display through donations from individuals and businesses contributing to the silent auction.
The 2014 Destin Desserts Champion Chef Trey Griffith of The Wine Bar will serve as head judge with (me) guest judge Susan Benton, owner of 30AEats.com.

All funds raised this year will benefit the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle Camp Kolomoki. Camping has been a part of a 102 year tradition in Girl Scouting, but this tradition is in jeopardy. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has had an adverse effect on our camps including water erosion and complete road washouts, as well as, weather rotted foundations. More than 2000 girls visit Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle camps each year with their troops. More than 900 girls were turned away this past year because of needed repairs that has closed Kolomoki until the necessary repairs have been completed.
