Copy Cat Thin Mints

This time of year the girl scouts start going door to door to sell their fabulous cookies, but for some reason we never get any girl scouts at our house and so I have to wait till they start selling them in front of grocery stores. No longer my friends, now I can make my two favorite girl scout cookies at home, with these delicious copy cat thin mints (and of course my other favorite being samoas – get my copycat samoas recipe here).

  1. I love thin mints from G/Scouts only problem is they r $4.00 a box and the box and cookies decreased!! The y use to b bigger an a good amount of cookies. Now it is a waste of $$

    1. Oh what a bummer! These are a great substitute for the same great taste. It may cost the same or a little more, but you should get LOTS of cookies!

  2. Came out the same way girl scouts makes them only takes 1 hour to make worth trying if craving girl scout thin mints

    I’m ready to compare the taste. Yours sounds delish.

    1. Definitely try them out and let me know how you think it compares!

  5. This looks like the easiest and yummiest treat ever! I will have to give it a try!

    1. I hope you do! They’re perfection!

  6. I heart Thin Mints so much but hate that they only sell one time of the year. I am so trying these next time I have my girls scout craving. Pinned!

    1. I agree! And the girl scouts never come to my house so I sometimes don’t even get any! So glad I can make them at home now!

  7. Mmmm, these look SO good! I love mint and chocolate. It was nice meeting you ladies this weekend at BYBC! We would love it if you would come link up this recipe tonight at our linky party!

    1. Thank you Jessica! It was so great to meet you too!

  8. These look so good! Easy and obviously delicious! Thin mints are definitely my favorite Girl Scout cookie :)

    1. I go back and forth deciding if thin mints or samoas are my favorite!

  9. Yum, these look amazing! I have a weakness for thin mints–my cousin got me hooked on them in high school, when we would dip them in hot chocolate. It was fun meeting you two at BYBC today!

    1. Oooh I love the idea of dipping them in hot cocoa. Definitely going to try that soon! And so great to meet you too!

  10. In the post it says “chocolate extract”. Did you mean to say peppermint? …Though chocolate extract would be delicious, I think. :)

    1. Thanks for catching my mistake. I fixed it!

  11. I wait all year long for the Girl Scouts and thin mints are always on my list! Love that you made your own version, they look amazing and so easy too!

    1. Thanks Kelly! They are both amazing and easy!

  12. I don’t know of any Girl Scouts in my neighborhood, so I never get Thin Mints any more. I’ll be making these for sure!
