DIY Thin Mints

Easy DIY Thin Mints - 4 ingredients and amazing results! | | #cookies #girlscout #thinmint #mint #chocolateDid you know that thin mints are the most popular Girl Scout cookie? Every year literally millions of these cookies are sold. But, the delicious temptation of a thin mint paired with the seasonal sales cycle of The Girl Scouts presents a problem for me. You see, I really can’t afford to have more than one box in the house at any time. Why? Because I’ll eat it.

But, since the cookies aren’t sold year-round that means that I can only buy one from the Scouts and then suffer the rest of the year thin-mint-less. That is, until now.

I’ve seen plenty of DIY Thin Mint recipes, and I urge you to experiment with whatever you think sounds good. For me, however, I felt some of these recipes were over-thinking it a bit. I mean, what I love about the thin mint is that it is so simple. These are crispy chocolate dry cookies dipped in mint chocolate. That’s no big deal! Heck, its pretty much just a graham…

And that is how it began. I ran out to get some chocolate graham crackers, coated them in mint chocolate and voila! These amazingly delicious, crispy, cool-mint cookies were born.

Did I mention that these cookies are crazy easy to make? I’ll never want for thin mints again!

What You Need:

  • Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Coconut oil
  • Peppermint oil
  • Cookie cutter (optional)
  • Chocolate melter (or double boiler)

How To Make It:

  1. Prepare the chocolate by adding 1 tsp of coconut oil to 8oz of chips in a chocolate melter. (You could also melt in 15 sec intervals in the microwave or with a double boiler) Once melted, add peppermint a drop at a time until you reach desired mintiness.

  2. If you want your cookies round like thin mints, use a circle cookie cutter to cut out the grahams. I do this sometimes, but more often just break the grahams into rectangles and leave it at that.

  3. Dip the grahams into the chocolate and allow to cool on wax paper, or on a drip rack.
  4. Store your cookies in an air-tight container on the counter for a few days, or in the freeze for a few weeks!!
