Homemade Thin Mints are just like the real thing! Crisp mint chocolate cookies coated in chocolate. They taste amazing! These cookies are easy to make and everyone will rave about them. The perfect balance between mint and chocolate will have you reaching for cookie after cookie. The dough can be made ahead and frozen or the fully baked cookies can be frozen for a quick snack.

For the cookie
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
For the coating
12 ounces dark or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Make the cookies
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir with a whisk; set aside.
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with a hand-held mixer, beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg white followed by the vanilla and peppermint extract. The dough may appear curdled, this is normal. Gradually add the flour in 3 additions, beating just until incorporated after each one. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
