Just a few ingredients to make thin mints at home! You can make these for cookie platters any time of the year!
These thin mints may not have the chocolate cookie inside that traditional thin mint cookies have, but believe me, you won’t believe the tricks your mind will play on you when you try these. There is so much chocolate mint flavor in the coating that the Ritz cracker just has the supporting role of being crisp. I am going to make these for my holiday cookie trays since they require no baking, I can make these while my oven is full of other goodies.
My daughter just started Girl Scouts last month. She has her vest all ready to go. We won’t be selling cookies until the beginning of the year, so these Ritz Thin Mints will have to hold us over until then! I guess this year her troop has cookie costumes for the girls to wear while they sell cookies, I’ll have to be sure to post some photos then! What fun. 🙂 I hope you have a great week and I’ll have some more recipes for you next week.
