Is Girl Scouts season over yet? I have no clue, but since I have enough to last me the year, I can always snack on thin mints, samoas, shortbread cookies, and lemonades anytime!! I bought the most boxes out of all my friends and families… Haha! Hey, I`m helping these people get rid of their boxes and boxes of cookies, right?
I`m a huge fan of thin mints, as you can tell with these peanut butter thin mints I created a while back. These cookies aren`t mindblowing-ly (Did I just make up this word? Possibly.) creative. It`s a chocolate chip cookie that I mint-ified. (Another made up one? Possibly.)
I have this ridiculous craving where I always want a darn chocolate chip cookie. It`s weird. I see and bake all these crazy desserts, but I always have a hankering for the classic chocolate chip cookie!! I guess, it`s a classic for a reason right?
Well, the other day, as I was pulling another amazing batch of chocolate chip cookies from the oven, I decided to make another batch of cookies. With another classic: thin mints. I`ve made them with Oreos (America’s Favorite Cookie, right?) and absolutely love them, so why not make them with another one favorite?
To boost the mint flavor, I used peppermint extract and added Andes baking chips into the batter. Look at these beautiful cookies! You can see a little bit of everything in the photos. Thin mints, chocolate chips, and some Andes chocolate! They smell excellent, too! I mean, who needs mint gum? Eat one of these and get that minty chocolate scent. Haha!
(Okay, please do not follow this advice if you`re going on a first date or an interview. I`m sure you don`t want chocolate evidence, aka smear, on the side of your lips when you go to these things…)
Store cookies in an airtight container and will be good for at least 1 week.
