Homemade Girl Scout Thin Mint Recipe

If you have a daughter or relative who’s a Girl Scout you know it’s cookie selling time!  This is the time of year you can help the girls out by loading up on the boxes of cookies.  I know one of the favorites is the Thin Mint, it seems like every year we buy three or four boxes and they are gone within hours of purchase.  I started wondering if there were any recipes for these cookies we could make on our own.  I want to thank Nancy for sending me her recipe for homemade Thin Mint cookies, it looks pretty simple and I can’t wait to make them.

              Ingredients:

                   Ritz Crackers

                   2 tsp. of peppermint extract

Chocolate melts, for making candy, available at Walmart, AC Moore, or Michael’s

Directions:

Melt one package of chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each, until creamy and smooth, stir in the peppermint extract.  dip one cracker at a time into chocolate to cover, place on waxed paper to harden. (Hint; use two forks to take crackers out of chocolate and let excess drip off.)  Usually one sleeve of Ritz will use one package of chocolates.

Nancy warns, ‘be careful, they are addictive and taste the same as the originals.’  Enjoy!
