I’m a straight up fool over the Thin Mint cookies from the Girl Scouts.  It’s always the first box I buy when those cute little children start hawking their sweet boxes of deliciousness.  🙂

And y’all know about my passion for all things Oreos.  Now, I’ve not been bowled over by all the crazy Oreo flavors they’ve launched recently.  That is, until, I met the Oreo Thins.  I’ll admit, I love the Oreo cream so I was fully prepared to hate the Thins.  But there’s something about the crispy crunch they have that I just love.

Then they launched the Mint Oreo Thins.  Sweet gracious, these things are incredible.

Often times at the holidays, we’ll do chocolate dipped Oreos as easy sweet treats to give and to have on hand for gatherings.  So, planning our annual Christmas candy making, I got to thinking about dipping those delicious little Oreo Thins in chocolate.  Then I got to thinking about the mint ones.  Y’all.  Y’all!  These babies taste just like a Thin Mint.  Just. Like. Them.

They’re so easy, only require two ingredients, and everyone in my family went bonkers over them. If you’re looking for something simple to add to your cookie platter this year,  I’ve got you covered right here.  Y’all enjoy!

Shortcut Thin Mints
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: About 40 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 (10.1-ounce) package Mint Flavor Oreo Thins
  • 1 (24-ounce) package chocolate flavored almond bark
Instructions
  1. Melt the almond bark according to the package directions. Dip the Oreo Thins in the chocolate to coat them. Use a fork to retrieve them and tap off the excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. Place them on wax paper to cool. Once cooled and hardened, remove them from the wax paper and store in an airtight container.
Notes
You many not end up using all of the chocolate almond bark, but it's much easier to dip the cookies with the entire amount.

  1. These look yummy! I will be making them for Christmas. I also wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. My family loved the Sweet Corn Johnny Bread that I made last year, so I will be making it again this year for our Christmas dinner.

    Well Stacey, I love your website and your content but I must say I have never seen a Girl Scout hocking cookies. In fact the pawn shops where I live do not allow the hocking (pawning) of edibles. I do have a friend whose daughter hawks girl scout cookies periodically. God bless us everyone.

  3. I am all about shortcuts that really work!

  4. Thanks Stacy,Made theSanta bellies they were great.Think I will make these.

  5. Stacey, I love, love, love the the minties that the Girl Guides (Canadian version of Girl Scouts) hock/hawk, so will definitely have to make these. Thanks for all the good stuff, and a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  6. What a great Christmas treat that can be made in bulk. I made thin mints and Samoa cookies a couple of years back as homemade gifts for my family and wish I had this hack then

  7. Hi Stacey!
    Do you think I could melt 2 packages of the Nestles milk chocolate morsels and dip the cookies in them? Thanks and Merry Christmas! Judy

    • Sure. It won’t have quite the finish and “snap” of the bark, but will work just fine. You just might find that refrigerating them will make them firmer.
