Thin Mint S’mores

You guys. This recipe for Thin Mint S’mores is so easy it’s almost not even a recipe. There’s only two ingredients!

Thin Mint S'mores | crazyforcrust.com | The easiest recipe ever!

Does something ever just hit you and you think “Duh, why haven’t I thought of that before??!!”

That happens to me a lot. More than I’d like to admit, actually.

I mean, it pretty much happens every time I open up Bloglovin to read food blogs. Am I right?

Anyway, the other day at the gym, Hayley and I were torturing ourselves on the stair master and talking about dessert.

{What else is there to talk about on the stair master? Oh, and did you know that Hayley and I are neighbors? She’s, like, the coolest person ever to work out with. Can you say donut leggings?}

We got on the topic of Girl Scout Cookies and what we wanted to do with them and s’mores popped into my head.

I almost considered not even posting it. I mean, it’s so…simple. But then I tasted them.

You all NEED to know about this idea.

Thin Mint S’mores.

Thin Mint S'mores | crazyforcrust.com | The easiest recipe ever!

Two Thin Mints (or the Keebler Grasshoppers) sandwich a roasted marshmallow.

No need for chocolate bars. No need for graham crackers. Just Thin Mints and marshmallows.

{Side note: think of the possibilities! Oreos. Tagalongs. SAMOAS.}

To toast your marshmallow you have three options:

1. The most fun: blowtorch. Just be careful of your curtains and eyebrows.

2. Over a gas stove. They catch fire easily this way, but it’s (sort of) like an open fire.

3. An actual open fire. But that would mean camping and,well, I don’t camp. Actually, I don’t do fire either, which is why I should get a medal for doing #1 AND #2 for this post.

This is the perfect dessert to take with you on your summer camping trip. Freeze some Thin Mints and pack them when you go.

Or, you know, go make them now. Because it’s too easy not to!

Seriously, I’m doing this with Samoas next. And Tagalongs. And maybe even Lemonades!

    Thanks for linking up my Homemade Thin Mints! Ok this is the most genius idea ever!!! I love this!! I actually have a smores recipe coming my next post and can vouch for using the broiler as a way to roast them but you have to be CAREFUL or those puppies burn. Like literally in 20 secs they are done! I seriously love this idea!!! pinned :)

    i LOVE the simplicity here! I’ve made s’mores with Fudge Stripe Cookies and Samoas, and it’s SOOOO incredibly yummy! I just like that it takes away the need for the graham cracker and hershey bar. Way easier!

    Yet another genius idea, Dorothy! Believe it or not I have never had thin mints because I am a little apposed to mint and chocolate, but I am getting over that and now I need to try these!

    I love making s’mores from different chocolate covered cookies, but I have never thought about thin mints. Definitely need to try this next time!!! And I so wish I was neighbors with you guys…I need friend motivation to keep me going to the gym!

    Oh. My. Gosh. This is the most genius idea ever!!! I don’t really like graham crackers, so I normally make s’mores with cookies and nutella… But this idea is soo awesome! You just unlocked a whole new world of possibilities… I’m thinking Tagalog s’mores to go with thin mint s’mores! Now I just need to track down the Girl Scouts that live in my neighborhood ;)

      Thank you! I know, it seems so simple, but it’s so good. If you can’t find GS cookies, Keebler makes a great equivalent of most flavors!

    And I thought s’mores couldn’t get any easier than 3 ingredients! Love this 2-ingredient take on a classic. Great idea, Dorothy!

    Oh my gosh – THESE. I was always too busy fawning over Samoas when I was little to pay much attention to Thin Mints, but now I’m rethinking my stance!

    You can also use a microwave to melt the marshmallow. Just don’t go more than 20 seconds and watch it expand quickly. Works with a graham cracker, but not sure the chocolate on a thin mint would hold up.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 28th, 2014 at 7:20 am

      I can’t believe I’ve never thought of that!! I think once I totally burned marshmallows in the microwave (I walked away, rookie mistake). I need to try it again!

    You are BRILLIANT!!! These totally deserve to be posted. Seriously genius idea because you get slightly melty chocolate from the cookies, plus EXTRA chocolate on the outside. It’s my chocoholic dream s’more!! Now I just need to find a Girl Scout… I haven’t bought any cookies yet this season!
