Thin Mints may be one of the greatest chocolate cookies of all time, but they become even more amazing when wrapped around a chocolate pie. Yes. I did it. I ground up Thin Mints to make a crust for my pie. Once I had that shiny green box in my hand, it seemed like the only natural thing to do.
I love the Girl Scouts, and I love Girl Scout cookie time. I also love to make things that look like Girl Scout cookies as evidenced by this Samoa Bundt Cake . I’m not sure what it is about those overpriced boxes of sugar that brings out such wacky ideas in me, but hey, whatever works right? This week I picked up my annual haul: one box thin mints, two boxes samoas, one box tagalongs, one box shortbread. $20 worth of “what-the-heck-can-I-make-out-of-this” inspiration. It starts with this chocolate pie with thin mint crust, and ends…..well, I guess we’ll see.
