Love those Girl Scout cookies? Want to have thin mints anytime you crave them. Crunchy minty chocolate taste, believe it or not you can get the same taste using a fudge cake mix and a few ingredients. I did not make the cookies too thin because we like a bigger mint cookie.
Ingredients for cookie:
1 Box of Fudge cake mix
1/4 cup cake flour
2 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 cup melted butter
5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon peppermint pure extract
ingredients for Chocolate coating:
1 bag (12 ounce) semi- sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon shortening
1 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
(for gloss) a few edible wax chips (optional)
Directions: Set Oven at 350 degrees
Combine cookie ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll into little balls and flatten with bottom of a glass or cup. Place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Before baking use a wooden skewer to poke 5 holes on top of each cookie (like girl scout style) optional .
Bake for 12 minutes. Turn oven off and let cookies sit on the cookie sheet until cookies dry(gets a little hard for crunch) about 5-8 minutes. Cool cookies for 10 minutes before dipping in chocolate mixture.
