A homemade creamy mint ice cream packed with Thin Mint Cookies. This is the perfect way to use up extract Girl Scout Cookies.

I didnt really mean to make this official Girl Scout Cookie Week, but I really just couldnt wait to share these recipes with you! I started with Thin Mint Brookies, perhaps the best thing to happen to Brookies since they were invented. I followed this with a Samoa Stuffed Brownie with Caramel Frosting.

I’m having Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream today. This is a creamy, mint ice cream packed with crushed Thin Mint Cookies.

Now for this recipe, I ground these cookies into crumbs, to make sure every bite had cookies in it, but I also layered in larger chunks of the cookie. Since I usually freeze my Thin Mints (Do you not? You have to try this), I couldnt think of a better way to make this ice cream. Oh yeah, and be sure to put more cookies on top as shown below, just because.

You know what? I am totally obsessed with homemade ice cream. Now I will tell you that I havent done a whole lot of experimenting with crazy recipes, but I have made a few really good ones to share with you! Did you see my Smores Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream?

I dont know about you, but I like my ice cream slightly melted, and I used to stir my ice cream to make it into ice cream soup when I was a kid. So after I covered this ice cream in hot fudge sauce, I waited for it to melt and then devoured it. Sorry Im not sorry.
