Girl Scout CookieThin Mint Gooey Cake Bars

Tags: , , ,

Desserts

When Amanda and I got together in my kitchen, we created two incredible Girl Scout Cookie Cake Bars you are going to LOVE!   I made mine with Thin Mint Cookies and Amanda made hers with the Peanut Butter Tagalongs.  Both sooooo good!  Take  a look!

Gooey Cake Bar ingredient line up!

Let’s start with the cake mix and buttah!

Amanda, my lovely egg cracking model at work :)

Mix it all up.  I always end up using my hands.  Much faster.

In pieces, add the dough to the bottom of your baking dish.

Press dough evenly, does not have to be perfect.

Add some chocolate chips.

Time for some Andes mint pieces.  You can always use the whole Andes mints and cut them up if you can’t find the pieces.

Pour over your cake dough.

Ahhhh, time for the Gooey part of the bars :)

Love this part.  Drizzle time.

Time for those fabulous Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.  I broke mine into pieces.

Time to bake!  Here are both of our bars, mmmm!

Let these babies cool, cut into bars and enjoy!

Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint Gooey Cake Bars

1 Yellow Cake Mix

1 stick softened butter

1 large egg

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup Andes Mint pieces

1 small can Sweetened Condensed Milk

20 Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, broken into pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9×13 inch baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

2. Place cake mix, butter and egg into a large bowl, mix until dough forms. Using hands is easiest to mix together. Press dough into bottom of prepared baking dish. Top evenly with chocolate chips and Andes mints. Drizzle sweet milk over top and top with broken pieces of Thin Mint Cookies. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until baked through. Immediately after removing from oven, take a plastic knife around edges to loosen. Let cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.

Makes 12 bars

    I have these in the oven right now, and they smell SO GOOD. I’ve been baking something from this website every week to bring to work, and my coworkers are accusing me of wanting to make them fat. There’s never a crumb left, though, and I can’t imagine these will last long. :)

    OMG, this look delicious! Would you believe I didn’t know Andes made baking chips? Thin mints are my favorite so I’m looking forward to getting Girl Scout cookies to make these wonderful bars! :)

    They smell good and look good (just out of the oven) but the ingredients list only says “small” can of Sweetened Condensed Milk. My store only carries one size so I added 14 ounces. How many ounces does your “small” can contain????????

    Just wanted to thank you for this recipe! We used it to celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day at our cookie booth today. Besides every person LOVING it, my 7yo Brownie was able to make it pretty much independently (she asked that I put it in the oven). We will be sharing the recipe with the rest of our troop and adding it to our collection. Thanks again!

    I made them this weekend for a family gathering and everyone LOVED them! I ended up kinda doubling the chocolate chips and Andes pieces because I didn’t want to have open bags taking up space (you should see how many we’ve accumulated from my mom just buying them on sale or whatever and then not using them) but it didn’t seem to matter. There were plenty of bars left so I plan on bringing them into work later this week. Here’s the link to my post: http://dolcebellabaker.blogspot.com/2013/06/thin-mint-gooey-cake-bars.html

I brought them to the office because I could NOT have them in my house and everyone keeps coming in and saying how good they are :) Thanks for the recipe!
