Coffee-Mate Thin Mint Review & Thin Mint Brownies

by Jennifer Wieland
Thin Mint Brownies

Coffee-mate asked me if I would be interested in doing a review of their new Girl Scout line. I let them know that I am not a coffee drinker at all but that I would be more than happy to try them as a baker and come up with a recipe for them. The Girl Scout line comes in two flavors, Thin Mint and Caramel & Coconut.

Coffee-mate Girl Scouts Line

When you open them up they smell just like the cookies do. So in other words, you will start salivating and trying to hunt down a girl scout and her cookies. Both flavors do taste good but, being a huge Thin Mint fan I decided that I had to come up with a recipe for those first and foremost.

I decided to go with a quick and easy recipe that any level baker could follow along and bake. This means that I decided to adapt a box mix. I went with brownies and added a few other things to really amp up the Thin Mint taste and the end result was all kinds of good. I mean these Thin Mint Brownies are the kind of good where if you do not find someone to share it with, you will eat it all on your own good. If you are a fan of mint I highly recommend this creamer for your coffee and/or baking and if caramel & coconut is your thing then you should try it. If you are a fan of both cookies then buy both flavors and let your creativity run wild.

Ingredients
  1. 1 box of 13x9 Family Size Fudge Brownies Mix
  2. 1/3 c. Coffee-Mate Thin Mint Creamer
  3. 2/3 c. oil
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 c. Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels
  6. 2 c. Jet-Puffed Chocolate Mint Mallow Bites
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and spray a 9x13 pan with baking spray. Line with parchment paper that hangs over the sides if you want to be able to lift out the whole thing before cutting.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add the first four ingredients and mix by hand until almost completely lump free. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and follow the baking instructions on the back of the box. It should be about 24-26 minutes. About 5 minutes prior to finish open up the oven and take the pan out and sprinkle the top with the marshmallows and then the chocolate & mint morsels. Place back into the oven and finish baking the last few minutes. Allow to cool before cutting.
Notes
  1. The marshmallows will be gooey and stick to the knife as soon as you try to cut the brownies. In order to avoid this use a sharp knife. Dip the knife into ice water and shake off excess water and then cut. Do this for each cut and you should have no problem.

    I would definitely want to try the caramel and coconut. If it tastes just like the girl scouts cookies, then it’s a winner. I normally drink coffee occasionally. However, I believe that I could really get into the caramel/coconut.

    Oh Boy! This creamer is going to be dangerous:) I don’t like mint flavored in my coffee, but the caramel coconut might be the right choice for me~ I drink coffee every day and have tried just about every coffee creamer out there….I love to use creamer in my baking, since I always have it on hand, so the possibilities are endless….I can’t wait to pick some up:) Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
