So, when I found out that the thin mint girl scout cookies are vegan I wanted to make a fun and easy, no-bake recipe with them for the kids I volunteer with at the Boys & Girls Club. These Girl scout Thin-Mint Bites are so chocolaty, creamy, and melt in your mouth, leaving you craving for more. With just enough chocolate and mint flavors, kids and adults will love those. You say why not just eat the cookies? because it’s fun! I have to warn you… These little bites are very rich so a couple of those go a long way!

Vegan dessert balls are so easy to make and are a fun activity for kids. When I was a little girl I had a kids cookbook and I loved making chocolate balls from crushed biscuits and cocoa so this is my vegan friendly version.

Love chocolate & mint combo? check out my chocolate-mint pudding recipe!

Garnishing ideas:

Skip the ganache and simply roll the balls into sifted cocoa powder or coconut

Instructions
Making the bites
  1. In a food processor fitted with metal blade add the thin mint cookies and pulse to a fine crumb texture.
  2. Combine all the rest of the ingredients together with the cookie crumble and continue to pulse until a firm batter is formed. You may need to add more milk or flour based on the consistency.

  3. With a spoon or small ice cream scoop and your hands, scoop and roll golf-sized balls from the mixture and set in the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours in a tight lid container. These treats will stay fresh in a fridge inside a container for a few days but preferably eat fresh.
Making Ganache
  1. Chop the chocolate with a serrated knife and set in a large mixing bowl. In a small sucepan heat up the none-dairy milk. Heat up until the milk starts to bubble. You do not want it to scorch.
  2. Pour the milk over the chocolate in the bowl, cover with a plate and let rest for a few minutes. Remove the plate and start whisking quickly until all the chocolate is melted and is smooth. Add the peppermint extract and whisk.
  3. Dip the balls into the ganache and garish with some chopped peppermint candy, if desired.
