Put those Girl Scout Cookies to the best possible use in these Thin Mint Brownies! Just when you thought Thin Mints couldn’t get any better, I went and added them to a fudgy, incredible homemade brownie with creamy mint frosting! The result is a phenomenal dessert that you may not want to share!
My Girl Scout Cookie dealer messaged me the other day to let me know she had the goods and she could hook me up. I pretty much sprinted in her direction to collect on my Thin Mints. I look forward to this time all year round! I always regret not buying more, because pretty much as soon as I open a sleeve, they’re gone! The kids, hubby, and I all fight over them.
Ever since last year, I knew I wanted to make them into a drool-worthy, decadent dessert. But, since the cookies always seem to be part of a great disappearing act, I hid some in my special place. You know, the secret spot Moms have to keep all their most prized possessions safe from children. So, since my supply of Thin Mints were under lock and key, I could relax and put my thoughts and efforts to coming up with a way to use these delightful chocolate-covered mint treasures. The juices brewed in my head for a bit and then I decided to put together the yummiest mint brownie known to mankind.
I took these Phenomenal Mint Brownies to a whole new level of deliciousness! I used the brownie recipe from these incredible Copycat Cosmic Brownies, because it’s my all-time favorite homemade brownie ever! It gives the boxed brownie a serious run for its money. And I LOVE boxed brownies. Then I created a mint frosting to rival them all.
I crushed up Thin Mint Cookies and folded them into the brownie batter and then sprinkled some finer crumbs and larger cookie chunks on top. Dessert does not get better than this! I’m thinking I need to stockpile Thin Mint Cookies so I can make this year-round!
Mint plus chocolate equals pure bliss for the taste buds! I can’t think of a better way to enjoy Thin Mint Cookies! Part of me wants to hurry and get rid of these before I devour them all to myself and the other part wants to erase my children’s memories that these ever existed so I can hoard them. What would you do in my situation? 🙂
These brownies are killer good! I can’t wait for you to try them!
What is your favorite kind of Girl Scout Cookie? If you don’t say Thin Mints, I don’t think we can be friends. 🙂
