Mint Girl Scout Cookies

These cookies are a simple version of the ever-famous Mint Girl Scout cookies. I’m not quit sure where the original recipe came from but they have been a favorite in my family for many years. They can be made well ahead of time and stored in the freezer or an airtight container.

This is a very simple cookie to make and very versatile. I have substituted graham crackers for Ritz crackers and used orange extract instead of peppermint or white chocolateinstead of semi sweet chocolate chips. You can use your imagination and have a very favorable creation.

Hope you enjoy them.

Mint Girl Scout Cookies


  • 1 large bag of chocolate chips
  • 1/3-cup paraffin
  • 2 drops pure peppermint oil
  • 1-box Ritz crackers
  • Wax Paper


  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside. In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and paraffin together, stirring until you have a nice thin consistency. Add the peppermint oil and stir until blended. Dip crackers in chocolate mixture one at a time. Remove excess chocolate and place on wax paper to dry. Repeat until either the chocolate or crackers are gone. It usually makes the whole box of crackers. At this point you can decorate the cookies with sprinkles if desired.
