I saw this recipe awhile ago on Pinterest. Stuff and Nonsense created a version of Thin Mints using Ritz. This chocolate series was the perfect reason to finally make it. I simplified the recipe to use only 2 ingredients – that result in an amazing replica of the Girl Scout Thin Mints.
I know. It’s hard to believe. Two ingredients that truly taste like thin mints? I was pleasantly surprised when I made this recipe. I was more than surprised – because this simple recipe tasted almost exactly like the name brand thin mint.
Using Ritz crackers and Andes chips, it’s a frugal way to make a sweet treat. Plus, I can now have thin mints any time I want to make them. Maybe that isn’t a good thing?
I’m still amazed how something so simple can make such an addicting chocolate snack. Don’t wait long to make this treat!
1 bag Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips
Melt the Andes chips in a double boiler over low heat. Stir until melted and smooth.
One at a time, drop a Ritz cracker in the chocolate. Coat in chocolate. Lift out with a fork and gently shake off the excess chocolate. Place the crackers on wax paper and let harden at room temperature.
Store the thin mints in the refrigerator or freezer. Wait and see how long they last – or don’t!
One bag of chocolate should cover 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers.
I think these frugal thin mints are like Lay’s potato chips because I can’t eat just one thin mint! How about you?
