Confession: I have been a royal piggie and eaten all my girl scout cookies that Scott bought me. No I am not going to say how many boxes there were… but I refuse to buy any more! So – when in my internet wanderings I saw this idea on Nannygoat , I figured I have to try it! It is a recipe to make your own thin mint cookies using Ritz crackers and Andes mints. I mean I wouldn’t be paying to get fat so that makes it ok, right? (says the sugar addict – yikes!!)
I used what I had on hand – Guittard mint chips and milk chocolate wafers, and town house crackers.
I just dumped a bunch of each in a bowl and melted them. The picture doesn’t really show it, but the combo of the mint green and milk chocolate made the brown a sludgy color . But the taste was great. (I do think next time I will try dark chocolate instead of milk though…)
Chloe had her own ideas of what would be good, and yes she is wearing a swim suit. (We signed her up for swim team this morning and she is very excited, although the actual swimming doesn’t start until May…)
my review: pretty good.- I think dark choc. will be better, and I will try that next time! It is a fun quick treat, and Chloe loved helping too
