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.... :)ReplyDelete
