This Homemade Thin Mints recipe caught my eye because
- I love chocolate
- it was No Bake
- it was vegan and
- I totally missed out on buying Girl Scout Cookies this year and was craving these delightful minty wafers!
Who knew that Ritz Crackers were vegan?! They are the perfect shape and the exact same texture as the original wafers, making this recipe SUPER EASY. I used Light Cocoa Wilton Candy Melts that I had leftover, instead of chocolate chips. Wilton makes them in Chocolate Mint flavor too, which I have never had before but imagine if they are minty enough, you could omit the peppermint extract.
If you use regular chocolate chips, consider adding a teaspoon of shortening to help keep the chocolate smooth for dipping. This recipe is dangerous because I could easily pop a dozen of these Thin Mints in my mouth without thinking. My plan is to store them in the freezer at all times, that way they are not out in plain sight and Keith won’t be able to eat them all and we can enjoy them for a while longer. ;)
