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! 🙂

Do you love Girl Scout Cookies? Make these copy-cat Thin Mints with a few ingredients from home! 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
Brought to you by 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.
