I almost called these ‘Amazing Cookies.’ My husband, who hates having sweets in the house, came home from work the day we made them and ate one while I was still nursing the baby before bed upstairs.  He texted me (yes, across the house) to say “Oh my God, these cookies are amazing!”  From a non-sweet eater.  That’s how good they are.

And they are so easy, my girls basically mixed them up themselves, with just a little help from me to scoop them out on the tray.

I used Ghiradelli Triple Chip brownie mix in this batch, but have also used Betty Crocker mixes with great end result too.  Our chocolate mint morsels were Nestle’s Winter limited edition variety – next year, I’m going to have to stock up so I can cook them all year… but you can find mint chocolate chips in many different brands year-round.  They just might not have the fun dark chocolate and light green assortment.

Chocolate Mint Cookies taste Better Than Thin Mints

The brownie mix makes for the perfect cookie consistency – crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.  All you need now is a big cold glass of milk to pair them with!

What’s your favorite Girl Scout cookie?  I think I might need to tackle making my own Samoas next!  If you enjoyed this recipe, be sure to check out our 3-Ingredient Charlie Brown Cookies and Easy Christmas Cookies, all quick and easy options streamlined by starting with cake mixes!
