Do you like those Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies? Well, if so, I have a secret recipe for you.........these "cookies" taste just like the Thin Mints and they are sooooo easy to make.
Here's what you need to make them:
Two bags of these Andes Baking Chips
A box of Ritz Crackers

A few candy canes....I used the mini ones but you can use the bigger ones if you'd like

Melt the Andes pieces in a double boiler. (I don't have a double boiler so I just put one pot inside of another pot to melt them) Dip the Riz crackers in the melted chocolate.....coating both sides......and remove with tongs. Place them on parchment paper (I used tin foil and it worked ok) and sprinkle a little bit of crushed candy cane on each one before they melt.
Here's the result:

I may have been a little too heavy handed with the candy cane sprinkles. You could do without them if you want and use red and green sprinkles or you could even leave them plain.
Honestly......they are delicious and taste just like Thin Mints. Enjoy!!!!!


  1. I think I just might have to try that one!!!

  2. You'd like them.....promise. Swing by my house tomorrow and I'll give you a few to try if you want.
