Browse your Pinterest feed on any given day and you’ll find an endless stream of dessert masterpieces to behold.

Cakes complete with a zillion perfectly spaced layers (including the width of homemade, creamy, mouthwatering buttercream frosting), fondant masterpieces, and sculpture work indicative of a university degree in fine art.

I’m not crafty. Not even in the kitchen with food projects.

The thought of spending copious amounts of time on tedious projects involving little bits of anything makes me want to snarl.

Not that I haven’t tried my hand at a project or two; I’ll try anything once!

And I sure do like watching others try their hand at mastering baking prowess.

Ahem, looking at you The Great British Baking Show.

Most of the time, holiday-themed desserts in our house are simple creations.

They’re ideas that have more to do with flavor-design than they do crafty-design.

This time of year we all have Girl Scouts Cookies® on the brain and in this house Thin Mints tend to be what’s hoarded.

If you don’t have access to a Girl Scout near you, then you’ll be happy to know that ALDI makes a wonderful knock-off that’ll work just fine in this recipe!

These homemade Thin Mint brownies are simple to make and loaded with rich, dark chocolate fudgy flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 box dark chocolate brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 sleeve Thin Mints (16 cookies)
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and butter the bottom and sides of a glass 9×9” baking dish.
  • Add the brownie mix, eggs, water and canola oil into a large mixing bowl.
  • Use a wooden spoon to mix the batter until the ingredients are just combined, about 50 stirs.
  • Pour half of the batter into the baking dish. Place the Thin Mints in one layer on top, 4 rows of 4 cookies each. Pour the remaining batter on top and smooth it gently to cover the Thin Mints completely.
  • Bake the brownies for 30-35 minutes, or until the middle appears set.
  • Let the brownies sit for at least 30 minutes before cutting them, otherwise you’ll have a gooey, minty, chocolatey mess on your hands.

    Hi, I'm Liza, a self-proclaimed word-nerd who loves getting sucked into whimsical stories and epic movies. I have laid-back, practical attitude towards life, and as a foodie at heart, I relish the chance to both cook and eat. (No picky-eater here!) I'm always on the hunt for the perfect mojito, inspiration for another tattoo and time to finish my novel.
