Don’t despair when all your friends are scarfing thin mints and you feel left out, I have a great recipe for AMAZING thin mint cookies that are totally gluten free and caveman approved. YAY!
There are 2 methods to melting the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate, coconut oil and peppermint extract in your double boiler, stirring constantly until the chocolate is thin and pourable. You may have to add extra coconut oil if your chocolate is too thick.
Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, take out and stir. Repeat this process until the chocolate is pourable. You may need to add extra coconut oil if the chocolate is too thick.
Once the chocolate is ready you can coat your cookies. Confession time, I’m lazy when it comes to this process. I prefer to use cookie molds to coat my cookies. It is so much easier than hand dipping. Plus they look so much nicer, when I hand dip, the kitchen looks like a chocolate serial killer just murdered a bunch of Hershey’s kisses on my counter. Not to mention the cookies themselves look like something that is less than appetizing. So I cheat a bit, don’t judge, this is why I’m almost Supermom, there is a margin of error built in.
I digress, back to the cookies. Dip your cookies however you please and voila! yummy thin mint cookies to make all your Girl Scout cookie eating friends jealous. Store in an airtight container in your fridge and enjoy!
