Thin Mint Cookie Bark


For those of you already planning your holiday cookie trays and neighborhood gift giving- have I got the perfect solution for you!  A fast and easy {only 2 ingredients} cookie bark that tastes amazingly like the Girl Scout Thin Mints we all know and love!

Have you seen these new baking chips from Nestle – a combination of dark chocolate and mint?  {Brilliant}  When I first spotted them on the holiday baking display and knew they had loads of potential.

Nestle has a recipe for Magic Mint Chocolate Bark on the back of the package which consists of just melting the chips and sprinkling with almonds . . . but I had visions of thin mints in my head, so instead I melted the chips on a layer of chocolate cookies.  The results were amazing . . . Don’t you love it when a plan comes together!

This cookie bark is so easy, and easy is always good at this time of year.  You can make a batch to add to your cookie trays, or it’s perfect to package up for fast and easy holiday giving!

 

 

 

Thin Mint Cookie Bark

 Ingredients:

chocolate graham crackers

2 packages  (1o oz) Nestle Winter baking chips

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line a 10 x 15 baking sheet pan with tin foil.  Lightly spray with cooking spray.  Cover the pan with a layer of chocolate graham crackers.  Spread 2 bags of Winter baking chips on the graham crackers.  Place in oven for 2-3 minutes or until the chips are shiny.  (Note- if they don’t easily swirl they are not completely melted.  Return to the oven for another minute.)

Remove from oven to a wire rack.  With the tip of a knife immediately swirl morsels.  (Don’t over do it or you’ll lose the green).

Allow to cool completely or refrigerate for about an hour.

Remove cookie bark from pan using the foil.  Break into pieces and enjoy!

  20. If I make these now — wrap them well and keep cool – will they still be good for Christmas? Thank you!

  21. Joanna- wow, it’s never lasted more than a few days at my house! I would recommend storing it a week at most…once the chocolate has melted it tends to crackle and not look as pretty.

  22. Just wanted to let you know I recreated your recipe and featured it on my blog today. I linked up your post! Have a Merry Christmas!

    Thanks!

  24. Wow. No better occasion was reserved for the words: NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM

  25. Where do I buy chocolate graham crackers? Are they chocolate or chocolate covered?

  26. I just bought chocolate graham crackers at WalMart- Honey Maid Brand. I know Kroger has a store brand also. They are not chocolate covered, they are just a chocolate cookie that look just like regular grahams. Look for them with the regular Graham Crackers.
