It’s Girl Scout cookie season! I look forward to buying a few boxes every year. My favorites are the Samoas and Thin Mints. This year I tried to get the new mango ones but apparently, the troops in the San Diego didn’t get any. Boo.
Anyhow, once I got my hands on a couple of boxes, I immediately wanted to do something with them other than just eat them. I got the idea for fried thin mints after someone left a comment on my fried Oreos post.
The thin mints stand up remarkably well in the high heat. These were pretty good, especially with a little powdered sugar dusted on top.
Fried Thin Mints
- 1 1/4 cup Bisquick mix
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 10 thin mints
- Pour oil into pot being used for frying, at least one inch deep. Heat to medium-high heat.
- In a glass bowl, mix egg, milk and bisquick mix with a large wooden spoon or whisk. Let small lumps remain in batter.
- Dip thin mint until covered in batter on both sides. Grab very small edge of the thin mint to remove and quickly put into the hot frying oil before the batter drips off. Fry for about 15-20 seconds before turning over to other side. Fry other side so both are evenly brown. Remove and place on plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining thin mints. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
