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 themΒ right out of the freezer with a glass of milk! πŸ™‚

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 butΒ don’t want to turn on your oven.Β They are a favorite in my family and I hope your family loves them too!

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
