Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches

Sooo, my stockpile of Girl Scout Cookies have arrived and they’re already almost gone!!! How does that even happen?! I caaan’t keep my face out of them! Do you have the same problem? I made some fun and slurpy Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches the other day and thought I’d share the grand idea here on the blog. This only adds to the GS Cookies addiction…but ya know. YOLO!

These were so good and I couldn’t stop eating them. They’re pretty daggone addicting. Are you ready for this super difficult Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe? Get ready, and take lots of notes. Juuuuuuust kidding. It’s really easier than peasy!

What You’ll Need:

 

Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches

Thin MInt Ice Cream Sandwiches(The ice cream started to get soft, so I ended up sticking it back in the freezer before finishing the rest.)

Instructions:

  1. Use a scoop to plop one dollop of ice cream on top of one cookie. Smush ice cream down with another cookie.
  2. Eat.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

See how simple that is? Plop, smush, eat, repeat! Plop, smush, eat, repeat!

Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches

Okay, now in all honesty…there are a few things I want to mention. Just to save you some time.

Before you begin to assemble these Thin Mint ice cream sandwiches, let the ice cream thaw JUST a little bit. Not too much. You want it thawed just enough that you can easily scoop it out. You still want the ice cream a bit firm, but easy to scoop.

When you smush the second cookie ontop of the ice cream, just smush it till the ice cream starts to barely seep out the side and then stop! You don’t want to squeeze it so much that the ice cream starts coming out all the way. If it IS doing that too easily, you may need to stick your ice cream back in the freezer for a bit to stiffen back up.

After assembling them, place back in the freezer on a wax paper lined baking sheet, tray, or plate until it’s time to serve them. They’re actually too hard to eat if the ice cream is soft so you want them nice and frozen!

These look SO GOOD. And would you believe that I haven’t purchased ANY Girl Scout cookies this year? I know. Shameful.

Why, oh why must you torture me? Seriously, YUM–I MUST try this and delve into sugar shock!

These look so good! I wonder what kind of ice cream would taste good with samoas? Those are my favorites.

That’s genius! And I suppose you could do it with any cookie!

You know, before reading this I thought you could not make Thin Mints any better. Now, I know that is not true. This definitely takes Thin Mints up a notch!

I just picked up two boxes of thin mints at my son’s school yesterday. Perfect timing, I must say. Perhaps it’s a sign (for us to make and eat these). ;) :)

Oh my yumminess! These look simply sinful. We have a box of thin mints in our pantry right this very minute. My husband and little boy would love these.

Toni March 4, 2014 at 7:42 am

I love how pretty these are. I am not a fan of the thin mints but I bet my friends and family who like them would love this.

Jenni Jenni March 4, 2014 at 10:27 am

Thanks Toni! They did turn out pretty. I love Thin Mints, but the ice cream just sent them over the edge!

These sound so delicious. I may need more Girl Scout cookies.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell March 4, 2014 at 11:04 am

I love doing that with cookies! It’s so beyond tasty, and I can’t think of a better combo than this one. Yum!

Reply

Jenni Jenni March 4, 2014 at 1:03 pm

The combo is amazing! I found that they’re much easier to eat after they’ve been frozen for awhile. The texture combination of the crunchy cookie and the creamy icecream is crazy good.

Brandy March 4, 2014 at 11:44 am

What a great idea! I know my kids would love this treat.

I loaded up on Thin Mints this year. I am totally going to have to make these sandwiches soon!

Reply

Ashley M March 4, 2014 at 2:40 pm

I think those might be better than actual thin mints. Cookies AND ice cream.

Reply

Amanda Her March 4, 2014 at 2:57 pm

Oh. My. WHAT?!?! Thin Mints are my favorite Girl Scout cookie and I never even THOUGHT of pairing them with ice cream. Looks SO good!

It’s crazy good! You’ll love them!

These look so absolutely amazing! I love thin mints and mint ice cream.

Krystal March 4, 2014 at 5:36 pm

Well, I’m hungry. That is a cool recipe. Thanks for the tip about putting them back in the freezer to harden up. I’d probably try to eat them too fast!

Reply

Jenni Jenni March 4, 2014 at 6:35 pm

Yeah, I tried eating them right after I made them. Melty…but yummy. Much better after being frozen for awhile. When I bit into them, the ice cream was so soft and it just squeezed right out the sides. haha!

Jenni Jenni March 4, 2014 at 6:36 pm

Did I just say “them”? I totally meant “IT”. Them makes you assume I had more than just one. ;)

Mmmmmm. These looks so good! When I was pregnant I craved Mint’n’chip ice cream like it was going out of style. I would have done some serious damage to these!!
