Megans Cookin: Thin Mint Brownies

Thin Mint Brownies

I have spent my fair share of time sitting outside stores, trying to sell cases of Girl Scout cookies. I told myself when I was no longer in scouts, I would a least buy a box of two and help support these little girls. Every box sold helps. So when I found them selling their baked goods outside the grocery store, I picked up a box of Thin Mints to make these delicious brownies.

You just crush a sleeve of Thin Mint cookies and add them to your brownie batter. You could use a boxed brownie mix, but I made one of my favorite home made recipes. I used the Baker's Chocolate One Bowl Brownie recipe. It makes a delicious brownie, it only dirtys one bowl, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. Next time you run into a Girl Scout selling her cookies, pick up an extra box of Thin Mints. You must try these brownies!

Thin Mint Brownies

4 squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Chocolate
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 sleeve (1/2 box) Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, crushed

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, and crushed Thin Mint Cookies, mix well. Spread into prepared pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Great looking brownies! I never buy GS cookies, I bake too much as it is. I don't need boxed treats too:) I might have to buy a box for these though!
