Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint gooey chocolate cake recipe

recipe | Girl Scout Cookie | Thin Mint Gooey Chocolate Cake
Girl Scout Cookies have been my life this past month: It's the curse of the Girl Scout leader.

My dad's birthday was coming up, and we were trying to come up with a unique dessert for Papa's birthday celebration. I remember we used to buy my father Thin Mints for his birthday when we were kids, and so I was on the hunt for ideas on how we could use some of our extra boxes for a good cause.

Inspired by a post doing a takeoff on butter cake with Thin Mints and Andes Mint pieces, we came up with a recipe for an amazingly chocolately concoction that made the birthday boy happy. (Photo at right is it before its baked; it all melts together in gooey deliciousness)

Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint gooey chocolate cake
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter
1 large egg
1 (12 oz.) bag chocolate chips
1 small can sweetened condensed milk
1 box Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, broken into bits.

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
Beat cake mix, butter and egg until dough forms; spread into the pan. Top with chocolate chips then condensed milk. Sprinkle with the crushed Thin Mints.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool before enjoying.

When I saw the title of your post {via HDYDI Link Party}, I thought that the cake sounded great - but what really made me click over was wondering how you manage to have left-over Girl Scout cookies!! :) The recipe looks wonderful - we'll have to give it a try soon!

Yes, I was wondering that, too, since we're sold out of thin mints. :)

Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday!
