I created these melt-in-your-mouth thin mints for a cookie exchange, and everyone raved about them. They're often requested by my family and have become one of my daughter's favorites. To switch up the flavor, try using different extracts instead of peppermint. -Michelle Kester, Cleveland, Ohio

"Just like girl scout cookies.

Another option is to mix in peanut butter instead of mint. Amazing!"

"I didn't feel like hunting the grocery stores for dark chocolate candy coating, so I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. They are okay, but I'm not impressed. Maybe they would be better with the candy coating it calls for."
