I think everyone has a different name for magic cookie bars– I grew up calling them 7 layer bars, but I’ve heard several variations along the way. To see an original version, click here (but come back!).
I was excited to try a Thin Mint version, but wasn’t totally sure how to approach it without the coconut and the pecans– that seemed a little empty.
And even after I had made them, and took a bite fresh out of the oven–
I was kind of like, “ehhhhhhh, they’re ok…”
But they tasted a little “caramel-y” warm. Which does not go with mint.
So I set them on the counter to cool overnight, fingers crossed for a better result in the morning.
They were totally, completely, incredibly addictive.
Were, as in: past tense.
Because they are gone, gone, gone.
These are totally worth using an entire box of thin mints on.
And I don’t mess around with my Thin Mints, so you can trust me…
I’m a professional.
A professional Thin Mint eater.
(and if you just can’t bring yourself to part with an entire box, Keebler makes a great alternative)!
