Chocolate Thin Mint Bread


 I have another Girl Scout cookie recipe for you today.  Thin Mints were the Girl Scout cookie I remember most as a kid.  My mom loved Thin Mints and she used to order about 6 boxes of them.  No joke we used to plow through them.  With 5 people in the house those 6 boxes never lasted very long.  I really like Thin Mints because I love that combination of mint with the chocolate.  Thin Mints are great for this type of year because the chocolate mint flavor always reminds me of St. Patrick’s Day.
I decided to make some delicious chocolate bread using Thin Mints. I love all kinds of bread, but nothing is better than chocolate bread.  Also the more chocolate chips in the bread the better, yum! I made chocolate chunk bread and added Thin Mints to the bread.  The Thin Mints gave the chocolate bread a slight minty flavor.
This Chocolate Thin Mint Bread was so moist and chocolately with a hint of mint flavor.  The mint added some good flavor to the bread but was not overwhelming. I also added some chocolate chunks to the bread so there was melty chocolate in every bite.  On the top I added a combination of chocolate chips and crushed Thin Mints to add a chocolate mint topping.  This bread is really delicious and my family loved it, we ate it right up.  I hope you enjoy this bread!
