Thin Mint Cookie Parfait









It’s Girl Scout cookie time and boy do I have an obsession with Thin Mint Cookies!  One of my favorite treats to make is the Thin Mint Cookie Parfait.

Just like 95% of all of the recipes I make, I channeled my inner Sandra Lee to make this quick, easy, semi-homemade and budget-friendly.

This is a perfect “starter dessert” to teach your children how to read a recipe.  Especially if you use instant pudding, there is no cooking involved, and kids will get a thrill of learning how to cook such a fun little treat.

To make this fun and delicious dessert go from normal to extraordinary, make it in a fancy glass and add some chocolate shavings on top.

Zero Calorie Thin Mints

 

Do you want to support the Girl Scouts but not with all of the calories of the cookies?  When you see the girls outside of the grocery store for the next couple weeks, give them a $20.00 dollar bill and ask them to send five boxes to our military troops overseas.  Brilliant, right?

Here’s another great Thin Mint Cookie recipe from Susan at Organized 31.

Love, hugs, and opening another sleeve.

    My favorite girl scout cookie is a caramel delight, but thin mints are a very close second! Love this recipe you have here. I’m all about quick and easy desserts!

    My favorite Girl Scout cookies are Samoas, but Thin Mints are a close second. Your recipe sounds so simple, yet looks so elegant. A fancy glass sure dresses up a dessert — So fun!
