Thin Mint Brownies – Delicious Semi Homemade Recipe

These semi-homemade Thin Mint Brownies are SUPER easy to make and right up my alley. It basically pulls together two boxed flavors that you probably already have in your pantry and combines them into one wonderful culinary experience.

Thin Mint Brownies

Are you a fan of the Girl Scout’s Thin Mint cookie? I certainly am obsessed with them. In fact, it’s the only TYPE of cookie I order every year. You cannot beat that crunchy goodness.

Well, combine the Thin Mint CRUNCH with the warm and gooey flavors that a freshly baked brownie offers and you have yourself one great recipe!

Make this Thin Mint Brownie recipe whenever Girl Scout Cookie season comes around. I LOVE semi-homemade recipes because they are easy to handle and the flavors are exactly what I look for from a dish.

If I want more Thin Mint flavor, then I just add a few more cookies into my mixing bowl. The options are endless! Do I feel like adding a few walnuts into this week’s batch? Then I will just go ahead and do that.

When you make semi-homemade, you spend a little time in the kitchen, but you get a big reward that still tastes like it was made from the heart. I feel like that last sentence pretty much defines me as a person.

These brownies are no exception. A very simple recipe because I am using a box fudge brownie mix to start. Usually, you just need water or an egg to start setting that up.

If you want to make homemade brownies, you can go ahead and do that. But I am not ashamed to say sometimes I don’t have it in me to make something from scratch.

Brownie Ingredients

  • 1 box of fudge brownies (along with ingredients needed to bake)
  • 1.5 cups of Thin Mint cookies
Ingredients for brownies

Prepare brownies according to directions but add 1 cup of crushed Thin Mint cookies to the mix. Pour the brownie batter into a pan. Top with 1/2 cup of crushed Thin Mint cookies. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool and then serve and enjoy!

What do you think about this yummy treat? You can’t go wrong with chocolate and mint.
