I was remember the day I became a Brownie - followed by graduating into the Girl Scouts. Every Tuesday night, we would meet at my Elementary school with my Mom as our leader, learning life lessons. Year after year, I would win the award in my troop for selling the most Girl Scout cookies. Present day, Gabe has become the Girl Scout cookie monster and will purchase 10 boxes at a time. His favorite are the Samoas while mine are Thin Mints & Tagalongs.

It appears that NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® has answered both of our prayers for non-cookie season. Along with Girl Scouts®, they created cookie flavor candy bars which are only be available at Walmart until the end of summer. The three flavors available are Thin Mints®, Caramel & Coconut and Peanut Butter Crème! I will be the first to tell you - if you have these in your house, be prepared to have some self control. I don't have much of a sweet tooth and could probably take down an entire box in one sitting.
As a kid, I always crumbled Thin Mints in my ice cream so I knew exactly what I wanted to make with the cookies. Gabe got me a Blendtec for Christmas and we finally made Ice Cream with it. 45 second for homemade (and delicious) Ice Cream - score. Mixing in NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® Girl Scouts® Thin Mints - Double Score.
I am fairly certain you need a Blendtec or other blender which has an Ice Cream setting on it - but this recipe can be modified for other Ice Cream Machines.

NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® Girl Scouts® Thin Mint Ice Cream
1/4 C half-and-half
3oz sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 C (1 pint) whole-milk ice cubes (about 1 tray)
 NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® Girl Scouts® Thin Mints (I used 3 of the mini bars)

Place all ingredients except candy into the Blendtec blender, press Ice Cream setting and blend. Once it is thick and creamy, add the Thin Mints and pulse 4-5 times until blended.
We found the cookies at Walmart in Brandon, FL. Gabe was beyond excited when he saw the flavors. We purchased one of each - and the bars are miniature - for two bars, it ranges from 190 calories and 6 grams of saturated fat. I have seen full size versions of these candy bars at other stores but this was the only option at ours. At least this way, we have portion control.
