I have a confession to make. I avoid girl scouts.
I know, I know not nice, but those damn cookies are so addictive. I see the girl scouts sitting over at their table by the exit doors when I go into the grocery store entrance doors. The carts separate us so I can check out their location without making eye contact. I make it a point to exit through the entrance doors when I leave to avoid buying the cookies or telling those cute girls in their green uniforms “no”. I am weak.
I have another confession to make, I love going to tractor supply. Don’t judge me. It is such a cool place. I get my chicken food, and other stuff my chickens don’t need. I check out the farming magazines and look at the gardening signs, and even last week they had baby ducks and chicks. Nothing cuter than baby ducks! Took some i-phone pics and sent them to my husband threatening to bring some home. I am a TOTAL DORK!
So, I didn’t see them when I cheerily grabbed my shopping cart out front of the Tractor Supply last week to make my trek through the store to see what I could see. As I rounded the corner there they were…. the girl scouts and their Mom. “Hello would you like to buy some girl scout cookies” they asked. “Why, yes I would” I said, when I was saying silently in my head “NO, NO, NO I would not”
So that is how I ended up with a “few” boxes of girl scout cookies and yes you know which ones… the thin mints. What other girl scout cookies are there. Yes, I know the coconut ones are good, but really? Its’ all about the thin mints.
So here you have the best damn mint chocolate cupcakes you have ever eaten! I really out did myself with these babies. I blame it all on Tractor Supply and those cute little girl scouts.
P.S.- if you don’t have girl scout thin mints they sell all different just as addictive thin mint cookies in the cookie isle at your grocery store.
