    The only good thing about the negative comments is that people are reading the nutritional info. That in itself is a good thing. But if you don't want to make something then just don't make it. Thanks for sharing the idea. I can't get Girl Scout cookies here in Norway. Spark on! - 3/15/09

    This is a great idea! Not sure why people have to be so negative about a 'not-so-low-calorie' recipe! The idea of Spark is to adjust your lifestyle to learn to incorporate & enjoy that type of stuff! Moderation & self-control!! - 12/26/08

    I make something similar during the Holidays, but instead of the candy melts, I use almond bark (3 blocks chocolate and 1 block vanilla) and peppermint flavoring to coat them. I'm not sure how that would effect the calorie/fat numbers, but it's a good alternative if you can't find the candy melts. - 12/26/08

    These were so easy to make and look and taste like the real thing!! I am gong to make these for Christmas gifts next year. Not really healthy, but probably lower in calories and fat than the real thing. Thank you for submitting this one! - 2/24/08

    Hmmmm. Murray's has a new Sugar-Free Fudge-Dipped Chocolate MInt Cookie that is like the Thin Mints, but you get FOUR cookies per 126 calories and not two. - 2/20/09

    Actually, four Girl Scout cookies contain the same amount of calories as two of these...not that healthy after all. But they still taste good! - 4/5/07

    Haven't tried these yet but probably will. Some comments on the # of calories, first are the real deal the same size or slightly smaller. Second, I can only get the real deal once a year, this would be any time I have the craving and the time. - 12/21/09

    I have made these before. There are complaints about the number of calories, but when you have cravings, it is better to have something to satisfly the cravings before they get out of hand. I would make them. They would take some time, but they would be cheaper than buying them. Thank you. - 12/18/09

    I made these and they were yummy. I made them as gifts and wrapped them in florists paper tied with a bow. I think they are a great idea. I put a sprinkling of hazelnuts on every alternate biscuit and they looked great. Maybe not too healthy, but homemade and a lovely gift idea. Thanks Lorelei2 - 12/21/08

    Not exactly what I call healthy dessert but they are very excellent and ACTUALLY taste like girl scouts thin mints. They also were so easy to make. I made them for a baby shower and I know no one is gonna believe me they aren't girl scouts, LOL! Loved them just wish there was a healthier version - 11/29/07
