Homemade Thin Mints! Yum-Yummy!

  • Am I the only one who despises waiting for 'girl scout cookie season' to start? Or the price for a couple boxes of said cookies?

    I sure hope not because these things are amazing!

    Here's a copy cat recipe that I found, tried and LOVED!

  • For the cookie part:

    > 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package fudge cake mix

    > 3 tablespoons shortening, melted

    > 1⁄2 cup cake flour, measured then sifted

    > 1 egg

    > 3 tablespoons water

    > nonstick cooking spray

  • Chocolate coating:

    > 3 (12 ounce) bags semi-sweet chocolate chips

    > 3⁄4 teaspoon peppermint extract

    > 6 tablespoons shortening

  • What to do:

    > Combine the cookie ingredients in a large bowl, adding the water a little bit at a time until the dough forms.

    > Cover and chill for 2 hours.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    > On a lightly floured surface, roll out a portion of the dough to just under 1/16 of an inch thick.

    > To cut them, use a spice container lid with a 1 1/2 inch diameter.

  • Continued:

    > Arrange the cut dough rounds on a cookie sheet that's been sprayed with a coating of non stick spray.

    > Bake for 10 minutes.

    > Remove them from the oven and allow to cool completely.

  • For the coating:

    > Combine chocolate chips with peppermint extract and shortening in a large microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl.

    > Heat on 50 percent power for 2 minutes, stir gently, then heat for an addition minute.

    > Stir once again, and if chocolate is not a smooth consistency, continue to zap in microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth.

  • Finally:

    > Use a fork to dip each wafer in the chocolate, tap the fork on the edge of the bowl so that the excess chocolate runs off, and then place the cookies side-by-side on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.

    > Refrigerate until firm.

    > Then eat away!!

  • And there y'all have it!

    They taste almost exactly like the original thin mints, but you get more for a better price in my opinion πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

    Hope y'all enjoy!
