Thin and Marvelously Minty Treats
Nothing delivers that signature whoosh of coolness like a chocolate-mint confection, and these meltaways have the flavor combo in spades. Peppermint oil, which you can find in health-food stores as a dietary supplement, or peppermint extract will both do the job. And just like the Girl Scout variety, these cookies are fantastic when eaten straight from the freezer.
