What would you do with an extra box of Thin Mints? We actually eat the girl scout cookies. But this weekend I made a pan of Thin Mint Fudge Brownies just for fun. Who wants to come over for coffee and the best brownies ever?
Every year I try to avoid the cute little girls around town that are selling girl scout cookies. Now I fully support this wonderful club, so no emails about my lack of community service. I just don’t like paying $4 for like 4 cookies. LOL fine, 20 cookies. Whatevs.
Of course I have no issues spending $4 for M&M’s or other candies I want. Hhhmmm…clearly I am a very crazy individual.
I was feeling pretty proud of myself this year for dodging all cookie buying attempts. Then one Sunday one of the little girls in our church was selling cookies, AND she had her mom helping her.
I have no problem telling a child no…I have had 13 years of child rearing experience after all. But to have a mom ask you…let’s just say I did my cookie duty and ordered 2 boxes. Apparently I can’t say no to adults selling cookies.
Oh no, not the expensive cookies. Those ones are only for eating!!! Today’s brownies use a package of Walmart chocolate mint cookies. No way am I chopping up $4 cookies just for fudge.
Let me tell you, these brownies are amazing. Brownie bottom with a mint fudge on top with crushed cookies pieces. I was having a really hard time not eating more than one of these bites. Ok, fine. You know me too well. I had about 4 of these just in about 2 minutes flat.
These brownies are quite simple to whip up. Make up a box brownie mix or make a double batch of these homemade chocolate chip brownies and let them cool. Once they were cool, I pressed the tops down so it was completely even all over.
Then you melt together the fudge ingredients and pour over the top. The best part is the cookie crumble topping. My kitchen was so minty and delicious smelling. I was going crazy all afternoon waiting for the fudge to set up enough for me to cut the brownies into squares.
This fudge is easy but it does take some time to set up. I would recommend making it the night before if you want to make them for a party the next day.
And you do want to take these Thin Mint Fudge Brownies to a party…otherwise you will most definitely eat more than your fair share.
You need to head over to my bestie’s blog Shugary Sweets today…she and I decided to share Thin Mint goodies on the same day. She made the most amazing THIN MINT PUPPY CHOW. I want to know where my package is???
