Thin Mint Brownies

I love girl scout cookies. So imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t find any kids to buy cookies from! Is it just me or have they diminished over the years? I remember when I had to ration only one box per kid because there were so many kids coming to the door + coworkers selling for their kids. This year… none. Which brings me to this recipe. It reminds me of a thin mint :). I made these for St. Patty’s day because they are also festive with their bright green frosting. 

The brownie part isn’t over chocolaty, which works well with the mint and pure chocoalte glaze. I wonder if I could make other girl scout cookies into brownies.. what kind would you make?
