Easy Chocolate Thin Mint Ritz Crackers Cookies Recipe

These little chocolate mint cookies are so easy to make . . . and they have a secret surprise ingredient: Ritz Crackers!
Once they are covered in the mint-flavored chocolate, you can’t even tell that it’s a cracker! They taste really similar to mint grasshopper cookies and you can whip them up in no time.
These little cookies also make a great neighbor gift! Once the chocolate hardens, stack them up in a little cellophane bag, tie with a festive ribbon, and you have a darling gift to give.
1 pound dipping chocolate or 1 pkg milk chocolate chips
1/2 tsp mint extract
28-30 Ritz Crackers

Line cookie sheet with wax paper – this makes it easier to transfer cookies to a cool place so they will set up quicker.

Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe dish, stirring occasionally. (I usually microwave the chocolate for 60 seconds, then pull it out and stir. Place back in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir again. Continue at 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until chocolate is completely melted.) When chocolate is completely melted, stir in 1/2 tsp mint extract.

Dip Ritz Crackers into chocolate. Tap off excess chocolate. Lay crackers on wax paper.

You can leave them plain or garnish with crushed candy cane. Also, cute when drizzled with red and green icing.

    If you use Andes mint chips (by regular chocolate chips) you can skip the mint. I put the crackers in the melted chips, then fish them out with a fork, tapping off the excess, and put them on the wax paper. I like to store them in the freezer, but they don’t usually last that long, anyway. :)

    Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any method you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    I absolutely love Thin Mints so I was anxious to try these. I had them when a client brought them into the salon so I knew they tasted great. I could probably tap a bit more of the chocolate off the crackers, but I don’t mind that they aren’t perfect. I may try to use the Mint chocolate chips or Andes Mint chips next time.. but then I have this whole bottle of mint flavoring.. 😉
