Thin Mint Milkshakes

I love this time of year…why?  It is Girl Scout cookie time!! As a kid I sold Girl Scout cookies and as an adult I just eat them, thus supporting the Girl Scouts (it makes me feel better because the calories are for a good cause). This recipe is not complicated, in fact you may wonder why I am putting it up on the blog but I wanted to share a way to use one of my favorite  flavor of Girl Scout cookies – Thin Mints.  Have you bought a box of Girl Scout cookies yet?  It is cookie time and the Girl Scouts are out selling cookies.  I was a girl scout, my sister was a girl scout, and now my niece is one so I continue to support the Girl Scouts.  The Girl Scouts of the USA is a great organization and important for girls and young women to build confidence, character, and leadership skills that will not only benefit them but also the community.  I know this first-hand 😉

I had this recipe in mind when I bought Thin Mint cookies from my niece.  When we were at the grocery store and I saw this Limited Edition  @font-face { font-family: “MS 明朝”;}@font-face { font-family: “MS 明朝”;}@font-face { font-family: “Cambria”;}@font-face { font-family: “Lucida Grande”;}p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Cambria; }.MsoChpDefault { font-family: Cambria; }div.WordSection1 { page: WordSection1; }Häagan-Dazs® Dark Chocolate Mint flavor I knew I had to use it in this shake.

 1 container Häagan-Dazs® Dark Chocolate Mint (you could substitute vanilla, chocolate, or any other flavor you choose)
1/2 cup – 3/4 cup milk (depends how thick you like your milkshake – less milk for a thicker milk shake)

Directions for milkshake
1.  Blend ice-cream and milk (I slowly add milk to get the consistency we prefer) in a blender.
2.  You can either add the 6 cookies and blend with the blender or crush them by hand and mix them in by hand if you prefer larger chunks of cookie.
3.  Garnish milkshakes with the other 2 cookies (or eat them when no one is looking)

Mangia!
