Thin Mint Muddy Buddies Recipe

I seriously cannot get enough thin mints in my life.  I love girl scout cookie season!  My kids were having a particularly rough day a few days ago, so I rewarded myself with these Thin Mint Muddy Buddies.  Trust me, it helped.  I almost forgot the chaos from the day while I devoured a few too many handfuls of these bad boys! 🙂

  1. I just saw the lunch lady brownies from Bonneville Jr high school ( my alma mater). Do you think there is any way you could ferret out the recipe for Ucon elementary (Bonneville school district) peanut butter balls? My three sisters and I talk about these delightful morsels every time we get together. They were rolled in powdered sugar and were moist not dry and hard to swallow like so many we have tried. I would be so grateful if I could surprise my sisters with these sweet tidbits. We won't share with our brother, he hates peanut butter, silly man. We would appreciate any help you could give us.
