"I was in the mood for cheesecake and had Girl Scout thin mint cookies that wanted to be involved. I also have a son with a nut allergy. I substituted the 1/2 c. nuts with 1/2 c. chopped thin mint cookies and the 1 T. lemon juice with 1 T. chocolate syrup. The Thin Mint Cheesecake Bars are cool, refreshing and hit the cheesecake yen I had."
