Thin Mint Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thin Mint Double Chocolate Chip Cookies 2t

Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies are definitely some of my favorites! Have you tried them frozen? Oh my they are fabulous. Today I bring you a chocolatey fudgy cookie with ground thin mints throughout.

No fuss here, just some basic pantry staples and of course a few Thin Mints. Don’t worry, you’ll still have plenty to stick in the freezer, lol!


It’s a beautiful sight isn’t it? AND we are helping our community right? Love all the adorable Girl Scouts. They don’t have to twist my arm to buy 20 boxes a box.


Here are some of the lovely ingredients you’ll be using today.


Let’s start by creaming your butter and sugars.

egg and vanilla

Add an egg and some vanilla.

flour and cocoa

Dry ingredients!

Thin Mints

There are a number of ways to crush your Thin Mints. You can stick them in a blender for a few minutes or food processor or even pound them with a rolling pin inside a ziploc bag. Take your pick.

cookies and chips

Add your crushed cookies and chocolate chips right to the bowl and give a good mix.

cookie dough

Time to bake! Press down each cookie ball before baking, they cook much nicer that way.

    Using cookies to make cookies… brilliant! I love thin mints so much, I’m not sure they would last long enough to bake with them.

  35. 35

    If a surfer resembling Keith Urban shows up at your door begging he’s mine lol! Daniel will flip out when I make these, chocolate mint is his weakness especially thin mints.

    For all you thin mint lovers try thin mints crumbled over the top of a frozen shamrock shake!! wonderful!! Also if you locate your local girl scout council they can direct you to a local cookie shop. I am in Michigan and we sell cookies at our local Kroger Stores. I’m a brownie leader and at one time I had 97 CASES of thin mints in my garage! I’m down to my last box!! My troop sold over 2000 boxes of the cookies!!

    […] This recipe is inspired by one of Jenny’s recipes at Picky Palate. To be honest I knew I wanted to grind up Thin Mints into cookies from some Cookies & Cream Cookies she made years ago. This idea has been on my to do list for a while now and I knew I could pawn off cookies this weekend so that was the schedule. But great minds think alike and Jenny posted basically the same cookieย recently! […]
