Girl Scout Chocolate Mint Cookies

Girl Scout cookie time always makes me so happy...until I moved to Ft. Drum. I, for some reason, can never find a girl scout to purchase 8 billion boxes from. So, I have taken matters into my own hands.

What you need:
  • 2 cups mint chocolate chips
  • 70 Ritz crackers

I used Andes mints. Mmmm. Next time I want to try the lightly salted Ritz and see if it makes a difference.

Melt your chocolate in 30 second increments in microwave, stirring after each increment until smooth and completely melted. It only took me a minute total.

Dip crackers one at a time. Try not to lick your fingers too much.

Place on wax paper until the chocolate sets. Store in an airtight container.
If you like Thin Mints, make these...they are well worth it and pretty dang close. I think the Ritz cracker adds a little bit of texture difference than a regular Thin Mint and there is a touch of saltiness that isn't in the original, but I didn't mind that because it reminded me a little of chocolate-covered pretzels. I also put mine in the freezer because that's how I eat my Thin Mints :] I'm just excited to have such a simple way to get my fix of them all year round!!

Yum! Now I just need a copycat recipe for the Caramel Delites and I won't have to spend a buttload on Girl Scout Cookies every year.... :)
