Homemade Thin Mints

image

Whenever Girl Scout cookie season comes along, I find myself searching for cookie stands in front of the local grocery stores in hopes of picking up a box of my favorite Girl Scout cookie, Thin Mints. Although there was a point in my childhood that I wished I had one of those green, patch-filled vests, I never was  Girl Scout but have always loved their cookies! So, when I saw a recipe for homemade Thin Mints over at Cupcakes and Cashmere (via Baking Bites), I immediately knew I’d have to try it out. The entire process of slicing, baking, and dipping the cookie crisps into melted chocolate was extremely relaxing and perfect for one of those dreary Sunday afternoons.

While there are slight differences between the store-bought and homemade version, nothing beats an apartment filled with the scent of peppermint and chocolate (and a freezer of four dozen thin mints….)!

    Those look lovely especially the photos where the cookie crisps have just been dipped in the chocolate – very appetising! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

    I saw these on Cupcakes & Cashmere and immediately wanted to make these. Seeing these on here makes me think I DEFINITELY need to whip some up. Thin mints are so reminiscent of when I was a kid…I can’t even remember the last time I had one! :)
