My friends often try to guess the ingredients, but I never tell them how simple they are to make. They taste just like the Girl Scout cookie, and they're perfect for Christmas and bake sales.

"This is quick and easy, and it tastes good, but it definitely does not taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints or the Keebler Grasshopper cookies. It tastes like Ritz crackers, dipped in chocolate, which is not a bad thing at all, just not a Thin Mint. It has that salty cracker flavor that the cookies do not have."
