My first trip to our local Vermont grocery store brought a pleasant surprise….Girl Scout cookies! To help out the local troops, the store was selling the classic cookies ( in a wide variety of flavors) right on the shelves of their store.

Not only was it helping the troops out, it was great for my family….cause, you know, we love them 😉

While waiting for them to come back, right now, I can make these Thin Mint Crackers at home. They are quick, easy and honestly, do taste just like classic thin mint cookies from the scouts. #NotKidding

Ingredients Needed:

  • Round buttery crackers
  • Chocolate
  • Mint extract

Crackers: At first, I tried a chocolate cookie wafer. While they tasted really good, they are a pretty thin wafer and a more than a few cracked when coated in chocolate. So, I switched to a classic round buttery cracker or “Ritz” crackers and they worked much better.

Chocolate: Depending on your taste preference, semi sweet, dark chocolate or regular chocolate will all work. You can also do a combination of any of them. Just be sure to stick with about 2 cups.

Mint Extract: I used about 1/2 teaspoon. However, feel free to increase/decrease based on your love for mint.

How to Make:

  • First, create double boil for your stove top. Add chocolate into the top bowl and melt until smooth. Keep whisking it, to prevent burning. Once melted, stir in mint extract.
  • Dip each cracker into melted chocolate. With two forks, coat it well, then, tap fork on the edge of the bowl to shake off excess.
  • Place coated cracker on a parchment line baking sheet. Let them sit for about an hour ( at room temp) to let them set. If you wish to speed up the process, place them in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Store leftovers in a covered container.

Last Note: I did top a few with crushed Oreo cookies crumbs for a little twist. Feel free to add any desired topping/sprinkles, if you wish.
