Yum! Thin Mints have always been my favorite Girl Scout cookie. Who knew they were so simple!
I know, right? I’d have never guessed it’d be so easy to duplicate those ridiculously addictive cookies at home. Watch out, Chel. It’s a slippery slope into addiction with these Thin Mints. 🙂
Interesting take on the thin mint. They are one of my favorite cookies.
Heather @ Kraus House Mom says
My husband loves Thin Mints. If I made these for him, I wouldn’t have to do dishes for a month.
Sounds like a deal to me, Heather! What is it with men and choco-mint combos? Mine’s gaga for it too. Hope your man loves the cookies as much as we do.
Is it okay to admit that I don’t like mint? Never have, not really sure why. But this recipe looks really amazing, and I know all the Thin Mint fans will be swooning over this!
Ali Williams (@skinnygfchef) says
Mint and chocolate are my favorite thing in the world. I never think to put mint in my chocolate though. Walking to the pantry pulling out the mint extract now! Thanks for the tips!
Ali, you’ve got some mega yumminess headed your way when you combine chocolate and mint. SO so good!
Terri Ramsey Beavers says
I saw these on Pinterest and wanted to make them for the grand kids. I haven’t had girl scout cookies in so long. I’d love to make the copycat thin mint version.
Thanks so much for stopping by, Terri. I can assure you that it won’t just be the grandkids digging into the cookie jar with these Thin Mints around. Hope you love ’em as much as we do!
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
These look so fun and festive. I love all the colorful sprinkles and I always love an OREO cookie! 🙂
Best part is, you can switch up those sprinkle colors for any and all fiesta occasions! Hope you try these double decker Thin Mints soon, Jenn!
Alli Smith says
Copycat thin mints with OREOs? Yes! Your version looks so much better and I’m so hungry. Those cookies and a cup of coffee would be the perfect ending to my day.
Alli, I assure you that these cookies DO indeed make a great ending (and beginning!) to one’s day. Hope you give ’em a try this weekend. They’re so ridiculously easy you’ve gotta be careful not to get addicted to both the cookies and how quick it is to whip them up for any and all occasions.
Thin mint cookies are my absolute and utter weakness so I am so glad I came across this post. My personal trainer will have to work me extra hard this week!
Haha, your trainer just might want a teensy tiny bite of cookies too, Amanda. In my opinion, the best desserts are totally worth an extra 15 minutes on the elliptical 🙂
I love oreos and thin mints and girl scouts are the only people I will entertain buying anything from at my door! These that you made look so delicious!! Ubber ubber delicious!
I’m sure those cute little girls in uniform are more than happy to be your preferred door-to-door salespeople, Heather. Who can resist their smiles (or their cookies?) Hope you give this simple twist on the famous Thin Mints a try soon.
Wow, my husband is a HUGE fan of the thin mint cookies. I am going to have to surprise him and make these for him.
What is it with men and the choco-mint combo? Seems like a trend here in the comments and my husband’s keen on it too (not that I’m not 🙂 ) Hope you try these easy peasy cookies soon, Shell!
I don’t like thin mints-but my boyfriend does! The sprinkles are such acute addition so we’ll have to try thiese!
Thanks so much, Mar. Your bf would be in your pocket for sure if you made him a batch of Thin Mints. Have a great weekend and thanks so much for popping over.
Franc Ramon says
I’m such a sweet tooth and I would really love to buy these irresistible cookies when I see them. Girl Scouts can raise a lot of funds when they sell cookies like this.
Yum. I’ve never had thin mint cookies, I’m not sure we have them in Canada but I’ve heard lots about them and need to make these. They look so good!
Jeanine, if you’re an Andes Mints or After Eight fan, you’ll be sure to enjoy these cookies. Hope you give ’em a whirl!
Angie | Big Bear's Wife says
You have no idea how badly I want to eat these! My husband would love them too because it’s crazy over those chocolate cookies!
Sounds like you’ve got yourself a perfect cookie match! Hope you find 15 minutes to try them soon, Angie.
Yum who doesn’t love thin mints! I always love finding copy cat recipes! Thanks so much for sharing this!
Oh, yummy! I love Thin Mints, and those cookies look amazing 🙂
Omg best recipes ever!!! Thin mint cookies are my favorite and I’m not even a junk food gal. So need these in my life!
