We love our Girl Scout Cookies! One of our favorite varieties of cookies is Thin Mints! We usually order a large quantity of boxes so that we have some extra. We tend to freeze a few boxes too. Did you know that the Thin Mint Cookies freeze well? Well they do and we usually have a few boxes in our freezer throughout the year!
This recipe was inspired by the Girl Scouts Thin Mints Cookie. But be warned….. these are minty, really minty. I love them, my husband thinks they are amazing and he usually heats his up in the microwave for a few minutes. I have never tried it that way but it looks yummy!
