Homemade Thin Mints

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

How to make homemade thin mints with Ritz Hip2Save


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!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
