Another nod to the Girl Scouts with this lovely recipe for Thin Chocolate Covered Mint Wafers. This one is certainly reminiscent of the ever-popular Thin Mints that we’ve all come to know and love.
This easy recipe is one I again love for its inclusion of extract, or oil of peppermint. It is far more popular than other extracts we’ve featured before (like rose or black walnut) but still hints at that made-from-scratch quality that makes this one special.
Mom always stores her Thin Mints in the freezer, to be enjoyed with a nice cold crispness to them – and I’d recommend you trying this recipe in the same manner just for kicks. They would also be delightful on a scoop of vanilla bean ice milk. Mmmm the delight!
