Homemade Thin Mints

Since it's Girl Scout Cookie season and Valentine's Day season, I thought I would celebrate the two together!  Meet Homemade Thin Mints {Valentine's Day Style}.  These are so simple, you have to be careful and not blink or you could miss the recipe!  It's got two ingredients: Andes Mints + Ritz crackers. If you can't wait for your Girl Scout Cookies to come or if you can't wait long enough to drive to your local grocery store, this is just the thing to curb your craving.  And if you have a sweetheart, consider making these for him/her for the big love day! If these don't tickle your fancy, how about a S'mores Milkshake for Two?

Homemade Thin Mints

1.  Melt the Andes on low ... careful as the mint chocolate can burn easily.  

2.  Drop a Ritz in and cover it with the melted mint chocolate using a spatula.

3.  Let dry on some parchment paper.

4.  Decorate if you would like!

And a virtual shout out to my fiance's mother who gave me the idea for this!!
