Faux Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints are a big hit here and easypeasy to make!


One package of Wilton Light Cocoa Candy Melts (Dark if you want them JUST like their's.) One sleeve of Club Crackers. For those who do not have access to this brand, it is a rich buttery cracker. Peppermint flavoring (I use candy flavoring, not extract. It is much stronger.) Place foil or parchment paper onto your counter. Melt the Candy Melts per the package instructions. I do mine in the microwave for 2 minutes on high heat. Stir, then 2 minutes more. Stir, then in 10 second increments. Add the flavoring, ONE DROP AT A TIME. Stir. Taste. Add more flavoring as needed. This gets very "hot" fast. So be careful. Drop one cracker at a time into the melted candy. Lift out and shake off excess. I use a candy making fork, you can use a regular fork. Place onto foil. Allow to set up approximately 1.5 hours. Store in an airtight container. Hide from your family. Ration out. :o) One for them, two for you...one for them, two for you...
