Thin Mints Mug Cake

If you do your grocery shopping on weekends like me then you’ve most likely encountered a Girl Scout cookie booth in the last few weeks.

So far, I’ve shown remarkable self-restraint– buying only one box of Thin Mints. I don’t usually like mint flavored desserts but there’s something about these crunchy chocolate mint cookies I find really addicting. It never takes me long to finish an entire box.

Before I devoured them all, I wanted to make a Thin Mints mug cake. The cake itself is chocolate and mint. I also added in actual mashed Thin Mints.

The cake looked a little plain so I added a sprig of fresh chocolate mint on top and another Thin Mint cookie for decoration. I recently went to Home Depot and went a little crazy buying herbs. I can’t wait to use them all!
