3 Ingredient Thin Mints

3 Ingredient Thin Mints – The easiest “homemade” thin mints you’ll ever make. You won’t be able to taste the difference between these and the originals. 3 ingredients and 15 minutes is all you need!



  • 20 Oreos
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (or white chocolate)


  1. Separate oreos and scrape off the white cream. Line a baking sheet with wax or other nonstick paper.
  2. Combine chocolate and peppermint extract in a microwave safe bowl. Heat chocolate until completely melted in 30 second intervals or heat with the help of a double boiler.
  3. Place one oreo half at a time into the chocolate and flip over with the help of a fork. Once completely coated, remove cookie half from chocolate with the fork and tap it on the edge of the bowl a couple of times (to get rid of the excess chocolate). Place on prepared baking sheet and repeat. Place in the fridge and let set for 15 minutes before enjoying.


*Sprinkle thin mints with crushed oreos or chocolate pieces after dipping.

Cookies will keep up to 2 weeks in the fridge or up to 8 weeks in an airtight container in the freezer.
