This looks like it’s going to become a regular feature. Instead of spending my daughter’s nap finishing Rite Aid, I’ve been all over Pinterest and the web looking at all sorts of oddities. Oh, and I still need to pull together my Handpicked post on my nifty rain barrel. Yep, I’m on it…sorta. So while jumping from subject to subject, I fell into the baking gutter. I desperately want cookies, or more specifically, GIRL SCOUT COOKIES. If you were here a few months ago, you’ll recall that I ate them morning, noon, and night. Actually, they were breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if you must know. So here I am….Girl Scout wishing the day away when it hits me ~ *Google them, you fool.* Yep, I’m making my OWN thin mints, thanks to Katrina and her awesome kitchen skills. Oh, and this is N-O-T-H-I-N-G. She makes Cookie Dough Magic Shell and her very own Cheez-Its…which, by the way, I just spent the last hour consuming more of the boxed variety than anyone ever should to compensate for the lack of cookies. :/
Make the peppermint coating: Meanwhile, prepare your chocolate coating. Using a double boiler, slowly melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until it is glossy and smooth. You can add 1 tablespoon of shortening if your chocolate is too thick. Alternatively, use a microwave in short 15-20 second bursts to melt the chocolate. Stir in the peppermint extract if you don’t have the mint candy melts.
Thanks, In Katrina’s Kitchen! You’re fabulous!
