I love Girls Scout Cookies! When we were younger, our Mom would let each of us pick out a box of cookies. We would hide them under our beds and savor them as long as we could! I was known to be the sneaky one in the family, and I would sneak into my sisters’ rooms and find their hidden stashes of Girl Scout Cookies. I always knew the sisters who ordered Thin Mints would never notice me taking one because they came with more cookies than the other flavors. :) Now I will never have to steal cookies again!
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Mint Chocolate Coating:
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8″ in thickness. Use a 1-1/2″ cookie cutter to cut circles of dough (or whatever shape or size you prefer). Place cut circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes, or until edges are set. Let cookies cool completely.
After cookies are cool, place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments until melted. Stir in peppermint extract until smooth. Place cookies in the chocolate one at a time, using a fork to flip and lift cookie out of the chocolate. Transfer the chocolate covered cookie to a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. Repeat with remaining cookies. Let chocolate harden before serving. You can place cookies in the refrigerator to set the chocolate faster.
