LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Girl Scout cookies alone are hard to turn down, but Wednesday local chefs made temptation even harder.

The chefs invented desserts using the cookies and then people got the chance to taste them during the Desserts First event held at the Mellwood Arts Center.

The winner was Andrea Essenpreis from Q&A Sweet Treats in LaGrange who created the Bacon Maple Do-Si-Do Bar using the Girl Scout cookie with peanut butter.

Essenpreis said, "It's a little surprised to have your name called, felt like on Oscars or something, very cool."

Funds raised from the event benefit Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana.
