The other day I saw a Girl Scouts’ cookie booth nearby my house. Is it that time of year already?
I found quite a few easy Homemade Thin Mints recipes last year and vowed to try making them this year.
Mine came out a little messy. I placed them on cookie racks to let the chocolate dry but I should have just laid them on parchment paper so that the chocolate would dry evenly on the bottom.
These were still delicious and a good quick fix. I always try to buy a few boxes every year but I run out of the cookies so quickly, so this is a nice alternative. And since they are homemade, you can also decorate them and use different types of chocolates.
If you’re looking for recipes to make with Girl Scout Cookies, you can check out some of my recipes from last year:
Homemade Thin Mints
- 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp mint extract
- about 20 Oreos
- Twist Oreos in half, removing the cream center. Discard or eat the cream.
- Melt chocolate and mint extract on the stove. Stir in oil to thin chocolate, making it easier to dip and coat the cookies.
- Place Oreo half into chocolate, coating the back and front side with a fork and then setting on parchment paper. I found the best way to make the coating even and smooth is to coat half of the cookie in chocolate and hold it upside down, shaking slightly and allowing the chocolate to fall and coat remaining parts of cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.
- Place finished cookies in fridge or freezer to chill until chocolate hardens.
