As part of their annual fundraising projects, the Girl Scouts go door-to-door selling their cookies. Their Chocolate Thin Mint cookies are so good they’re almost addictive, and it’s always disappointing when you finish the last box. But this 3-ingredient recipe guarantees that you can enjoy them year-round even if you missed the Girl Scout’s sale.
It’s hard to believe that something so simple could be so good. And even though these cookies only require three ingredients, they really bring home some big flavor. So, even if you’re new to Thin Mint cookies, you’re in for a real treat.
All you need is Oreo cookies, semisweet or bittersweet chocolate and some mint extract, all of which should be pretty easy to find at your local grocery store.
What you do first is scrape away the cream filling from the Oreos. Then, you melt down either the semisweet or bittersweet chocolate and add a teaspoon of the mint extract. Next, you dip each half of the Oreo cookie into the melted chocolate to cover it completely before setting it aside to dry.
And even though you’re probably expecting more steps, the truth is: that’s it. You don’t have to pull out your kitchen tools or turn the oven on. And it’s pretty cool to think that when you add some refreshing mint and melted chocolate to your Oreo cookie base, you end up with Thin Mints that are absolutely perfect for your glass of milk.
