Mint Thins recipe

Chocolate chip cookies are so last year. Leave these chocolatey, minty taste sensations out for Santa and just see what he puts under your tree.

This was soooo quick and easy. I made these for Christmas and everyone thought I bought them. I will be adding them to my Christmas cookies next year. For Easter I'll use white chocolate .
These were simple to make and were very delicious. Keep them refrigerated until just before serving as they melt quite easily.
AWESOME! I made one batch of the mint thins and one batch of the variation...chocolate peanut butter cookies. They were a huge hit with my children and tasted just like the girl scout cookies thin mints and tag a longs. I know we will be making these often.
This recipe is delicious, everyone raves about it. How do I dip in choclate without it being so messy?
I made both the mint chocolate and the chocolate peanut butter cookies - very easy to make. They were a hit at my work Christmas Party!
Tonight I made my second batch of these - the first batch were given as gifts (I was quickly besieged by several requests for the recipe!). I adore the Girlscouts Thin Mints, so when I saw this recipe in the mag, I HAD to try them. In a word: WOW. Previous posters considered these messy - I really didn't. I used a pair of kitchen tongs to flip the cracker in the chocolate (be GENTLE so as not to break the cracker), then had a rubber spatula in my other hand to scrape off the choc. I found that it was a good idea to scrape the bottom of the cracker, but I left the top unscraped. If you don't, you end up seeing the cracker through the chocolate. I still ended up getting a full sleeve out of my chocolate. I also added a bit of veg oil to my choc - makes 'em glossy and it sets the choc nicely. I would definitely recommend keeping them stored in the fridge. Just as a previous poster mentioned, I added a bit more extract than it called for - otherwise, they just weren't minty enough. I also
I made these for the teacher's at my school. They LOVED them! I melted my chocolate in a double-boiler though and it worked well. We will definitely make them again.
I found this to be messy and dificult to make. The taste is good but the presentation did not turn out well. I will not be making this again
Delicious! Everyone made the comment of how they tasted like the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies! I always ate one more then I should have saying to myself the cracker was healthy for me! My only problem was that it didn't make a whole pack of crackers (about 3/4 of it), maybe I used too much chocolate on the crackers!
These were very good and easy to make! The next time I think I will double the peppermint extract. They weren't as minty as I liked. But very similar to the very famous kind you can only get once a year!
