The all day Thin Mint diner

March 4th, 2009

Where you can never be too thin or too rich.

Cafe crème d’thin – Place two crushed Thin Mints in the filter basket and add grounds to brew your morning coffee normally. I’ve never tried this myself so you might just want to make regular coffee and enjoy a robust cup of Thin Mints on the side. You still get all the flavor and triple the thinness.

Healthiest thin mint oatmeal – Microwave a cup of healthy instant oats in super healthy soy or no-fat milk for 1-2 minutes until desired healthy doneness. Crumble a Thin Mint on top. For a healthier version, do not add a tablespoon of chocolate chips.

Mid-morning power thin snack – Eat 12 Thin Mints in under two minutes.

Mint thick lunch smoothie – Vital energy in a glass! Empty a box of Thin Mints into a blender. Add crushed ice and a cup of mint chocolate chip ice cream. For extra thickness, add a whole peeled organic banana, but the truly thin do without the added trouble and calories.

Afternoon power thin advantage – Challenge yourself! Eat 24 Thin Mints in less than a minute. Power down and you’ll make short work of it before you look up even once!

Fresh and easy garden mint dinner soufflé – Line a pie plate with crushed Thin Mints. Spoon contents of eight chocolate flavored pudding cups into the center. Top with two fresh mint leaves from your own garden. Remove the leaves and it’s ready to eat!

Afterthinner emergency – You’re out of Thin Mints. Quick, contact your favorite local Girl Scout before her 8:30 bedtime.

Dedicated to our beloved long-distance cookie customers. Your crumbs are in the mail.


  1. I had my first Thin Mint of the season last night. I certainly do not miss the days I was a Girl Scout leader and had cases and cases of cookies in our garage. A couple of boxes in the freezer is the perfect amount.

  3. Can you please ask Georgia when I can come pick my cookies up? After reading this post, the craving is too intense to ignore! P.S. I’m going to be in Sierra Madre Friday morning.

  4. I’m a shortbread girl, but thin mints are far more exotic. You make them hard to resist.

  5. First, conquer the Mints, then the Trefoils, is my motto.

    Jen, too late, love. YOUR CRUMBS ARE IN THE MAIL. On Friday I’ll be winging to Palo Alto. If you’re at SME, go to the 8:30 Spotlight Assembly where GG receives her first place award in the WordMasters analogy contest!!! Then practice your patience until the cookie crumbs come.

  8. Mmmmm. Can’t talk. Drooling. I might have to hunt down my friendly neighborhood Girl Scout tomorrow to shake her down for my long-awaited box. 🙂

  9. I was wondering when those tasty morsels were arriving! You did get my check?

    P.S. They will be going off to college to nourish a still aspiring Irish football player! Mom is always losing 20 lbs. It’s much harder since menopause…..
