Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake is like a blast from the past! We used our favorite Girl Scout Cookies as the inspiration for this months BundtBakers. Do you enjoy Girl Scout Cookies? I have loved them since I was, well.... a girl scout. Of course that was eons ago, and we sold those yummy cookies door to door. In those days, we took orders and then weeks later, we delivered the cookies to our customers, in my case, my neighbors and relatives. If you were lucky, your Dad would take the sign up sheet to work, and he would return with lots of orders. I was not that lucky girl scout. But I sold my share, and sometimes I got to eat a couple of my favorites, Thin Mints! So today the Thin Mints are my inspiration for this Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake. I hope it evokes good memories for you too!

  9. I wasn't a Girl Scout for very long but I do remember selling cookies door to door. As a kid I never liked thin mints, I know, I'm the only one, but as an adult they might be my favorite. Maybe. There's a box of tagalongs on the counter that still have the potential to remain my favorite.
