My Dog Digs Florida & a Super Yummy Girl Scout Thin Mint Cake Recipe

Your Moment of Archie

More evidence I may be in over my head with Archie… This paired with the bags under my eyes sort of says it all..

Girl Scout Thin Mint Chocolate Cake

I have a niece selling Girl Scout cookies, so even though I try very hard not to eat them, I had to buy them. (I used to sell them, so I get it!)

So, what to do with them?

I made up this cake recipe for my mother who A. loves chocolate cake and B. eats Thin Mints by the sleeve. She said it turned out next-level delicious, and I tried it and have to humbly agree!! So if you have too many boxes of thin mints, here’s a twist to use up a box!

Ingredients

  • 1 box (2 sleeves) of Girl Scout Thin Mints
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 cup melted choc chips
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup  buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or melted coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Blitz cookies in food processor into crumbs
  2. Put ASIDE ¼ cup of crumbs
  3. Mix all dry then all wet ingredients, then combine.
  4. Put into a 9×12 pan because you’re too lazy to do a layer cake and they always turn out lopsided
  5. Bake 350 for 30 minutes more or less or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Icing

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

Mix, spread on cooled cake and then sprinkle the crumbs you put aside on top!

I imagine you could do the same recipe with the peanut butter cookies for a chocolate peanut butter cake…

      Hi, don’t feed regular milk, human food, especially sugar to any pet. Even some plants can be toxic to dogs and cats. As for snakes, I love them. I got a corn snake and reared it since it hatched out the egg. His name is Coral, as the reef, because of his beautiful colours. They are marvels of nature full stop. And I love the way he wraps himself round my wrist and sticks his head in my hand and stays there all day if I would leave him.
