And of course, you’ll need a dessert. How about something really simple? Well, here’s the easiest way to make gluten free thin mints.
You’re welcome/I’m sorry.
Sure, you could make thin mint cookies from scratch. But you'd need more than three ingredients. Here's the quickest way to get your fix.
- 1 box of gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 bag of chocolate chips
- Peppermint oil to taste (see notes)
Twist sandwich cookies apart. Scrape filling from cookies. Heat chocolate chips in microwave, reserving a few tablespoons to stir into melted chocolate. This is the easiest way to fake temper chocolate for coating. Add peppermint oil to taste.
Dunk cookies into chocolate using a fork to turn and coat completely. Let cookies dry on a cooling rack or parchment lined pan.To speed things up, chill cookies in fridge or freezer, just until chocolate has set.
For best results, use an oil based peppermint like the one from Simply Organic. Whatever brand you choose, make sure it doesn't contain water or the chocolate could possibly seize. I used about 3/4 teaspoon of peppermint oil for a bag of chips, but that might be too heavy-handed for some.
Any brand of gluten free sandwich cookies will do. Same with the chips (or hey, chopped chocolate). Whatever works for you.
