Author Notes

I have been a girl scout for 10 years now. I always sell girl scout cookies, but I never really loved the taste of any of them. This year, I decided to take the best-selling Thin Mints and combine them with my brownie recipe. I was inspired by a local ice cream place that used to put mint-chocolate chip ice cream on brownies. —Jessica Burke

Ingredients
  • 8 ounces 60% dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Thin Mints (1 sleeve)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pinch flakey salt
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  2. Chop the dark chocolate into chunks. Melt half of the chocolate then save the other half for later.
  3. Mix the butter and the sugar, then beat in the eggs, peppermint extract, and vanilla for 1-2 minutes until the mixture has become fluffy and light in color.
  4. Whisk in the reserved melted chocolate, then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  6. Smash thin mints into small chunks or desired size.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chunks and thin mints, then transfer the batter into a parchment paper-lined square baking dish.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, then cool completely.
  9. Slice, top with flakey salt, and enjoy!
