If you like Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies you happen to be in the the right place. 3 ingredients to mint, chocolate heaven. That's it! I'm all about simple :) And to think, it all starts with a Ritz cracker.
While I'm not a mint fan (it brings back bad childhood memories involving Milk of Magnesia), my kids LOVE it! These cookies didn't last an hour in my house. These are great when the weather's hot because you don't have to heat up the oven to devour a yummy cookie and milk. Enjoy :)
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
1 bag of dark chocolate chips (I used chocolate candy coating)
1/2 tsp. pure peppermint extract
Melt chocolate in a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave (I stir every 30 seconds until melted). When chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in peppermint extract. Dip crackers and remove with a fork. Tap fork against side of bowl. Transfer cracker to waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill in refrigerator until chocolate sets.
