If you're looking for more authentic Girl Scout Thin Mints than that blechy version that uses Ritz Crackers, THIS is the way to go. The first time I tried this from Top Secret Recipes, I was a novice and had very little baking experience at all. The wafers were good enough to eat as a snack on their own, but then you dip them into that peppermint-laced chocolate and suddenly, you know you're on to something. The recipe makes a ton of them, but I can guarantee you, they won't last long after the finger twiddling wait for the chocolate to set. Do your Thin Mint loving self a favor, and give this recipe one try for yourself. You may never buy them from the door-to-door cherubs again, although, you should. The charity is worth it, and you can keep them in the freeazer and munch on them while your latest batch is cooling, chocolate dipped and glistening, in the fridge, heheh.
