Chocolate Thin Mint Ice Cream

Does anyone even have Girl Scout cookies around, anymore?

Chocolate Thin Mint Ice Cream | #recipeOr am I the only one who still has, literally, a half dozen boxes in my pantry? And that’s after countless recipes trying to use them up, like these out-of-control Samoa Blizzards, or the super gooey Do-Si-Do peanut butter cookie bars that never even made it on the blog before they were devoured (sorry).

Buuuuut, I hope you happen to have a lone box of Thin Mints tucked away in the back of your freezer (maybe you forgot about it…maybe you hid it from yourself…), because you are going to want to make this ice cream, like right now. (Okay, but if you actually don’t, Back to Nature makes a clone cookie, as does Keebler.)

Despite the fact that this ice cream doesn’t have a custard base, it’s unbelievably creamy and rich. And guess what? There is also no melted chocolate in this ice cream. It gets its chocolate flavor from cocoa powder! And yet, it’s outrageously chocolate-y. Just look at that deep, dark color it has:

The crumbles and crumbles of Thin Mint cookies swirled into the chocolate-peppermint base. If you’re a Thin Mint-lover, this is, without a doubt, your new favorite ice cream—promise!

I created this creamy, dreamy delight for my friends over at Food Fanatic, so be sure to head over to my post there to read more about this totally addicting frozen treat!

    This ice cream looks amazing! You can't go wrong with mint and chocolate- definitely one of the best flavour combinations! 🙂

    Uhh wow, that looks ridiculously delicious! I definitely do NOT have any Girl Scout cookies left (I only bought 2 boxes – what was I thinking?!), but I'm glad to know there are similar ones I can use. Yum!

      Hah yeah, I think Mikey and I are the only ones crazy enough to buy Girl Scout cookies by the dozen (it may have had something to do with the fact his boss's kid was selling them…lol). But there are quite a few copycat cookies out there. I also seem to remember purchasing some from Costco at one point that were square.

    I have my cookies!!! I bought so many (too many, I thought… silly me, there's never too many thin mints) and they're sitting in my freezer, evidently waiting for this recipe. Looks yummy, thanks for sharing 🙂

      Oh good! It's no just me who buys them like I'm stocking up for the apocalypse, haha!

    Oh my gosh, Rachael! This ice-cream is totally drool-worthy! Kinda wishing I had a huge bowl in front of my face right now. 😉 My mom will ADORE this ice cream, since thin mints are her fav kind of girl scout cookie! Pinned!

      Thank you! It’s like Thin Mint ice cream base mixed with Thin Mint cookies—sooo good!
