Girl Scout Thin Mint Oven Strudels

Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m off to the boys school this morning for 2 big parties then hopefully dinner with the family tonight 🙂  Hope everyone has some fun plans today.

Anyone else have an overabundance of Girl Scout Cookies like we do? We have quite a few boxes around the house which is why I thought it would be fun to do a Thin Mint Toaster Streudel!

You can’t get much simpler than this recipe, which is just what I like. We loved these warm, but whoa they were good cold too 🙂

Take a peek and enjoy!

Woohoo, 3 ingredients! I didn’t add the drizzle ingredients, but these are the main ones 🙂

How good are Thin Mints? Dangerous to have around the house, they are so small and thin it’s easy to eat the whole darn sleeve!

Place those yummy thin mints into a food processor or blender, pulse until fine then mix with 4 ounces of softened cream cheese.

Lay out both sheets of your puff pastry ( I only show one sheet here)  and cut each sheet into 9 rectangles. Spread filling over 9 rectangles then top with the remaining 9.

It will look like this 🙂

Take a fork and crimp/seal edges firmly.

Brush with egg wash.

Sprinkle with a little sugar.

Ready for the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Drizzle with the cream and powdered sugar drizzle and time to dig in!

    mmmmm I might have to unsubscribe from this blog just so I can drop 30 pounds. 😉 jk I love it too much.

    I pop thin mints in the freezer and then eat them. I bet I would gobble these up warm or cold though.

    Last night, The Husband and I made your Nutella-Mallow Pillow Pockets for the first time, and both decided we had found something we love more than each other. And today you post this?? You’re killing me with the dessert genius!!

  3. Fuji Mama

    These are SO fun! Though how did you have the self-control to use the girl scout thin mints IN something? Those are my favorites and I have ZERO self-control . . . they disappear VERY quickly.

  4. Lesley

    Seriously? You made a toaster strudel out of a girl scout cookie? Have you no shame? Ha! I love it! As always they look delicous & sinful.

  5. I Amy at TheSceneFromMe

    Oh my gosh! I love thin mint cookies! I usually get a thin mint blizzard from Dairy Queen. But a girl scout came knocking at my door the other day and I bought!

  6. Liz

    Okay I was going to make your nutella-mallow pastry’s this weekend, but couldn’t find those pastry sheets at the grocery store. Where are they located???

    and NOW I have to make these too so I need that ingredient! (:

    1. Jenny

      HI Liz,
      You find puff pastry in your freezer section over by the ice cream and frozen fruit. Ask a worker if you don’t see it, sometimes they put it somewhere else depending on the store 🙂 Good Luck!!

  7. Heather I.

    Wow, was a fun idea with the GS cookies- this is one I’ve never seen before! I could eat these for breakfast every day of my life. I need to hunt down a girl scout asap.

  8. Katertot

    These look heavenly! I think I might make a batch….and then enjoy the entire batch while the kids are sleeping. 🙂

  9. Darla @ Bakingdom

    Wow. I’m scared to make these!! I know I won’t be able to resist eating them all up! Fabulous idea!!

  10. Liz

    Oh man, what an awesome idea, Jenny! Thin Mints have always been my favorite, although I would looove to do something with Tagalongs or Samoas! Have a great day 🙂

  11. Debbi Does Dinner Healthy

    Funny, in the same sentence, I thought “I can’t possibly think of anything else less healthy, yet I can’t possibly think of anything else I would rather have at the moment.” These would make a great appetizer! Thanks!

  12. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    Neat idea for using up those thin mints (though I’ve been able to avoid them successfully this year!)

  13. Cookin' Canuck

    It sounds as though you have a Valentine’s Day planned. Have a great time! These toaster streudels are a fantastic idea – filled with my favorite Girl Scout cookies.

  14. The Blue-Eyed Bakers

    AMAZING. Thin mints for breakfast!? Yes please! And we might have to try this with Samoas of course…

  15. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga)

    These should be outlawed…they look amazing!

    “they are so small and thin it’s easy to eat the whole darn sleeve!”—When I was in jr. high and h.s. I could come home from athletic practice and DID eat a whole sleeve! Frequently!

    I was also a girl scout. And was a top cookie sales person every year. Probably b/c my own personal consumption of thin mints and samoas was ridic off the charts. LOL
