If you’re a fan of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, then you are gonna love this recipe! This super quick and easy recipe requires just 4 ingredients (including Ritz crackers) and it requires no baking! These homemade cookies have the same crunch and minty chocolate flavor as the Girl Scout variety – I personally like them right out of the freezer with a glass of milk! 🙂
Homemade Thin Mint Cookies
(Adapted from Averie Cooks)
One sleeve of Ritz crackers (or about 27)
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil, shortening, or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon pure mint extract
In a microwave safe bowl, mix chocolate chips with mint extract and coconut oil. Microwave in 15 second increments until melted and smooth, stirring each time. My microwave takes about 3 times. (Note: Using some sort of oil helps the chocolate melt smoother with less clumps).
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Dip the crackers into the chocolate, turning your hand to drip off the excess chocolate. I used a toothpick since the crackers have small holes in the middle. Place on top of the wax paper and freeze or refrigerate until set.
These are so delicious and super quick to make on the days you want something sweet but don’t want to turn on your oven. They are a favorite in my family and I hope your family loves them too!
