  • Cookie Sheet
  • Wax Paper
  • Microwave Safe Bowl


  • 1 pound dipping chocolate or 1 package of milk chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon mint extract
  • 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.


  • You could most definitely make these using mint chips. However, if they are mint chocolate chips, we prefer those. They taste better with a hint of chocolate to them.
