Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies Copycat Recipe

Are you one of those Thin Mint Cookies junkies? You can tell me. I honestly wasn’t setting out to make a thin mint Girl Scout cookies copycat recipe but today at my church Christmas party one of the ladies said, “wow these taste just like a thin mint, but not as dry” and I thought yes, yes they do (plus the other gals around agreed).

This is a keeper. Taste JUST like a thin mint. yummy chocolate dessert or treat recipe. And so easy great girl scout cookie copycat recipe.

I have a confession. I am not a thin mint fanatic. They are way too dry for my tastes. But these while being a dryer cookie than I normally eat are perfect. They are not a full soft doughy cookie like the Lemon White Chocolate Chip cookies I shared last week but they don’t give me that dry mouth feel that I always hated with the Girl Scout cookies.

delicious 5 ingredient thin mint girls scout cookie copy cat recipe. THey really do taste just like thin mints

Now I will warn you. These aren’t copy cat in the sense of you can stick them in a box and call them thin mints, but they sure do TASTES just like those highly favored morsels. ANd these are SOOOO easy and SOOOO much cheaper than those arm and a leg ones in the green box.

My new favorite. This 4 ingredient cookie recipe taste just like Girl Scout cookies thin mints. Great chocolate dessert.

(He totally unwrapped all the mints for me!)

What to Do

  1. Mix together everything except the chocolate chips and mints.
  2. Once combined stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Drop onto a cookie sheet in 1 inch scoops. Keep it small these spread a lot!
  4. Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately top each with an unwrapped Andes mint.
  6. The heat from the cookie should melt the chocolate and when it does take a knife and spread it around to make the icing. If your mints don’t get spreadable you can pop the cookie sheet back in the oven for a minute.

Fresh from the spreading these puppies are CRAZY addictive. I love love love the melty chocolate mint topping and the soft mint chips inside. But once they cool and the icing/candy hardens the cookies take on the thin mint tastes. Make sure you try them both ways!

Love these! THey are so easy and good. Taste just like thin mints. great chocolate dessert recipe
