Homemade Thin Mints (Easy No Bake Cookie)

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)

Ingredients:

1 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

Directions:

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!

    I just made these last weekend, but I used the Andes mint chips. The taste is spot on, but at $3/bag at Walmart, not terribly cost effective. I am still enjoying them though 😉

      I do that too with oreos!

    Can’t wait to try these! Thanks!

    We do something similar but sandwich a thin layer of peanut butter between 2 Ritz crackers then dip in chocolate. We normally use the cheap almond bark, it’s $2 or so for a 1lb package. They disappear fast.

      My mom always did that (no mint in the chocolate for the pb version) and called them butterfingers cookies.

    I make these with almond bark so no need for oil. They taste so close to the real deal but way cheaper, we love them 🙂

    Omg these sound awesome!!

    • Ann

      Yes, can’t wait to try them.

  6. kayla

    Im going to try and make them with mint and dark chocolate morsels

    Thank you for waiting until after Girl Scout cookie selling season to post this! Sincerely, a Girl Scout Mom 🙂

    Sounds like a lot of people like these but I’m skeptical that a Ritz cracker could even remotely taste right in this haha. I may have to try it just out of pure curiosity! FYI Keebler has a cookie called a grasshopper that makes for an okay substitute when not in girl scout cookie season. 🙂

      Dollar General sells knock off Girl Scout cookies. They are delicious.

    I make these at Christmas time with mint chocolate chip morsels. They are soooooo good. People who try them cant believe they are made from Ritz.
