Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂
Growing up one of the best time of the year was girl scout cookie time – I was never a girl scout but my dad always bought TONS of thin mint cookies
He would put the boxes in the freezer and slowly eat them overtime ( well everyone in the family would eat them — but they were technically his)
The problem always happened about 2 month after we bought them that there were NO MORE to be had —- then started the long wait till Thin Mint Season again
Well — we are not in thin mint season again and we thought it would be fun to make our own thin mint cookies at home 🙂
I posted this recipe over 2 years ago — so long ago that there was not even a final picture — and all the pictures were done on my cell phone 😉
Enjoy the recipe 🙂
This is everything you need 🙂 The final cost — I think we made about 2 boxes worth was about $3 — now I would not make these instead of buying girl scout cookies — but this is a great alternative once you run out
Because no matter how many your buy you will run out at some point 😉
Here is my dad melting the chocolate

Copycat Recipe: Thin Mints Recipe
- 1) Ritz Crackers ( I know what you are thinking – but just try it 😉 )
- 2) Chocolate Mints - Andre works great
- ) Create a double broiler ( simply put water in a pan while placing a pan on top of the pan with water and turn up the heat) – this will cause the chocolate to melt but not burn 🙂
- ) Give the Ritz crackers a chocolate bath! I used a fork to dip the crackers in the chocolate
- ) Place “cookie” on the parchment paper – when the tray is full place tray in the freezer and wait for 20 minutes.
- ) Enjoy!!!!
