I think it’s pretty safe to say that America has a love affair with 2 very special cookies. The Thin Mint (lovingly brought to us by the Girl Scouts) and the Oreo. Both in my opinion are nothing short of AMAZING!! I have seen several bloggers- some of which are also my friends, use the cookie part of an Oreo to make their own Thin Mint cookies. While I think it’s absolutely GENIUS – I was also quite saddened by the thought of scraping out what I view as the essence of the Oreo & dare I say….discarding (GASP) it!!!! Really?? So I thought- why on earth do I have to choose between the genius of making my own Thin Mints & the essence of the Oreo? So I came up with my own solution.
This post was originally shared by me on “Or So She Says…” several weeks ago but I love this one so much I just had to share it here in my own space too.
Thin Mint Meets Oreo
Mint & Oreo – Yep, every bit as good as you imagine.
I’m not really sure I can ever go back to eating either of them the “normal” way again.
It really is the perfect marriage of 2 iconic cookies.
Mmmmmm- make these for your next gathering. They will be gone in a flash.
Thin Mint Meets Oreo
- 16-20 Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies
- 16 ounces 2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 tsp Peppermint Extract
- In medium size glass bowl - microwave your chocolate chips 1-2 minutes on 50% power. Be sure to take out & stir every 30 seconds to make sure it's heating & melting evenly.
- Once it's very melted & smooth stir in extract.
- Lower your your cookies one by one with a fork into the chocolate, flipping to coat completely.
- Raise out of the chocolate & allow excess to drain off.
- Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
- Continue with remaining cookies.
- Place in refrigerator to set chocolate for several hours.
- Remove & allow to cookies to come to room temperature before serving.
- Store in airtight container.

Oh, Gina…I think you just created the perfect cookie! I would eat these until I made myself sick. I’m wondering if they would taste good frozen, like Thin Mints do, or if they’d get too hard? I might just have to do an experiment to find out… 😉 Thanks so much for linking up at Moonlight & Mason Jars…so happy to have you joining us!

I hear you for sure Samantha. I have not tried freezing them – but the fridge worked well.
OOOH that’s a good idea!! I’ve never frozen thin mints but looks like this will be the year I try it with these.
Kim Anderson says
These look soooo good. I will have to make some of these up for gifts for some of my friends who love thin mint and chocolate mint stuff. Which is like every woman I know!
