Uh-oh. Did you polish off all of the cookies in that famous little green box already? Feed your craving with this clever version you can make yourself!
There’s nothing quite as nice as that time of the year when those little boxes of cookies are sold in front of stores and from door-to-door by adorable little fundraising neighbor girls. But when those boxes of goodies run out, you don’t have to wait the whole year before tasting the chocolate-covered goodness of a minty cookie.
Here’s how to make your own Mint Thins right in your own kitchen!
Grab a box of Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake mix.
Add a half-cup of melted coconut oil to the mix and stir until well mixed. Add an additional tablespoon or two to the mix until the dough begins to stick together.
Press the dough onto a clean surface that’s been sprinkled with cocoa powder.
Roll that dough out until it’s about 1/4″ to 1/2″ flat.
Cut into 2-3″ inch rounds.
Transfer your cookies to an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake until set, about 6-8 minutes.
Allow your cookies to cool completely before prepping your candy melt for dipping.
Dip the top half of your cookie into the prepared candy melt.
Make sure the entire top of the cookie is covered.
Dip the corner of the cookie into sprinkles, if desired. Place your cookies on a piece of parchment or plastic wrap and allow to cool completely.
Once cooled, serve your cookies. To share or not to share, that is the question!
