Skinny Mints are the perfect promoting Woman Scout cookie and so they make up 25% of all Woman Scout Cookies gross sales. They’ve simply the precise mixture of chocolate and mint in a crispy cookie to be addictive. Their taste is definitely fairly distinctive and that makes Skinny Mints very recognizable. I usually use Skinny Mints in baking recipes and determined to show them right into a refreshing espresso drink this time round – and the result’s my Home made Skinny Mint Frappuccino. It’s an ice blended espresso drink that’s full of Skinny Mint taste – and precise Skinny Mint cookies!
All the chocolate taste within the drink really comes from the cookies. Skinny Mints are somewhat extra minty than they’re chocolaty, so placing an excessive amount of chocolate into the drink simply turns this into an odd, however minty, mocha. The crispy cookies add simply the precise amout of chocolate taste, and I added somewhat further peppermint extract to spice up the mintiness of the cookies. It’s somewhat candy and surprisingly refreshing for an indulgent iced espresso drink! Don’t hesitate to splurge and add a dollop of whipped cream on prime earlier than serving.
If you wish to take pleasure in this drink and it’s not Woman Scout cookie season, you possibly can simply substitute for the Skinny Mint cookies. Keebler makes a cookie known as a Grasshopper that’s virtually equivalent to the Skinny Mint, and you’ll even use plain chocolate wafer cookies or Oreos with out the filling with good outcomes.
