Make Your Own Thin Mints at Home

Girl Scout cookie season has come and gone, and unless you have a freezer full of them, you are probably out of Thin Mints by now. Sure, you can buy mint-chocolate cookies in almost any grocery store, but they don't come with that very thin crispy wafer and the melt at room temperature minty coating. We have a recipe for Thin Mint clones that are a lot of fun to make at home. What surprised me was that the ingredients are so common that I have all of them in my kitchen now!

The trick to making these like the Girl Scout cookies is the "thin" part. The cookie dough should be rolled out really thin, and the chocolate coating should be partially removed after dipping to imitate the thinness of the original. The extra care that goes into them makes them more authentic, and more appreciated. Get the recipe and instructions at Lifehacker

Allie Chanthorn Reinmann, who devised and tested this recipe, promises to bring us more Girl Scout cookie clone recipes in the next few weeks, so you might want to bookmark Lifehacker to check for them. I'd love to make my own Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies (Do-si-Dos), as long as they have that same slightly cinnamon taste as the Girl Scouts version. -via Fark ā€‹
