Over a year and a half ago, I made some mint chocolate bars featuring Girl Scout Thin Mints and Oreos. I was amazed by how similar it tasted like a Girl Scout cookie. Sure it was lacking the crunch your get from the green box, but the smooth and creamy texture didn’t take away from the flavor. I knew that I wanted to create this again.

Now that it is Girl Scout cookie season, I thought of no better time to to attempt this recipe again. Rather than using Oreos though, I opted to actually using crushed Thin Mints. Also in my original recipe, I used mint extract. In this recipe, I used peppermint. A slight difference, but it provides less of that herbal flavor that comes with original mint.

This is a no bake recipe which I believe is great for beginners. Simply cream your butter, melt your chocolate, assemble, and let freeze for a little bit.

Great Divide’s Yeti is an imperial stout. I was afraid the roasted malt flavors would interfere with the mint, but to my surprise it went quite well together. This would also be a good choice with Samoas.
