Bigger is better, at least when it comes to dessert. That’s our motto, anyway. So, what if we take thin mint cookies and turned them into not-so-thin mint cookies? Wouldn’t that be divine? We’ve done just that!

(Not so) Thin Mint Cookies

Girl Scouts are undoubtedly one of the most famous providers of cookies, and of those cookies their most famous cookie is the thin mint. We also love Samoas! This delicious twist of chocolate is the number one choice of many people. So what would happen if we take the “bigger is better” mentality and apply it to thin mints?

By taking the thin mint and blowing it up, you get more of what you love. Each cookie is bigger and fluffier while still keeping that signature taste that it’s loved for. This brings bigger is better to a whole new level!

The best part of these cookies? They’re super easy! There’s no magic trick here; they bake just like any other cookie. Just mix, shape, and bake. Yes, it’s that simple. Now you don’t have to wait for those Girl Scouts to come knocking. With cookies this good, those scouts may be knocking down your door for your cookies instead!

When preparing your cookies, make sure you give some more dough than usual to each cookie. After all, bigger is better. The dough will rise on its own, just like with any other cookie, but adding a bit more dough than usual will really give your cookies some nice volume.

The ingredients in these cookies are rather simple. So simple, in fact, that part of the recipe is done for you already. Just pick up a box of thin mints brownie mix from your nearest grocery store. Once you have that, just add it to the other ingredients posted below. Follow the other directions and you’ve got yourself a big batch of chocolate goodness!
