Who doesn’t love Girl Scout cookies? They aren’t available year round though, so I love creating copy cat recipes to satisfy those cravings anytime they might strike! This recipe couldn’t be any easier. If you like Thin Mints, you will love these!

Who knew that making your own Thin Mints could be so incredibly simple? I think I even like these better than the real things….maybe because I can coat them in an extra thick layer of chocolate if I want to (duh). Or maybe it’s because I can make them in a matter of minutes, anytime I want.

Be warned: This is a very dangerous recipe to have on hand. These Thin Mints are crazy addicting and they are way too easy to make batch after batch after batch…. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

When I made these, I twisted open each oreo and made a separate pile for the plain cookie half and the half with the cream filling. Then I had the genius idea to stick the cream filled halves together to make a double stuffed oreo, homestyle ;) The plain cookie halves were turned into Thin Mints. Nothing was wasted here!

I hope you give these a try – they are one of my favorite copycat recipes yet!!

  1. Interesting idea to use the oreos for the base of the cookie. Chuckling how you didn’t waste any part of the oreo :)

    I’ve made this recipe last Christmas for gift baskets but I used Ritz crackers, not Oreo cookies.. Sounds weird but they taste just like thin mints. Everyone gobbled them up!

  11. Sandy says:

    Did you know you can also buy chocolate wafers? They are a bit larger than Oreos but would still work well.

  12. When my son was little, he had eating issues and only liked “slick” foods, so Thin Mints were his favorite. Wish I had this recipe then!
