Thin Mint

One of my favorite cookies is the beloved Girl Scout Thin Mint. The only problem is that these chocolate delights are only available once a year and I hate to admit it, but I can go through a full box of these babies without blinking.

Recently I found a recipe online to make your own thin mint cookies - I could barely contain my excitement!

The best part? It is SUPER easy and the outcome is fabulous!!!

You only need to have two things: Ritz Crackers and a pack of Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips.


1. Melt the entire bag of Andes mints in a double boiler or shallow saucepan on low heat, stirring continuously. Do not fill pan too high with water. You do not want the water to touch the bottom of the other pan.

2. One (or a few) at a time, dip the crackers into the melted chocolate, using tongs flip them over so all sides are covered.

3. Remove and place on a baking rack. Allow cookies to cool for 30 minutes or until hard.

4. Transfer to a baking sheet or pretty plate and store in the fridge.
So pour yourself a glass of milk, dip and ENJOY!


  1. WOAH! We really are twins... same birthday, same good hair, same favorite girl scout cookies... we are crazy.
