Thin Mints (homemade)
These are SO YUMMY!!!! Just like the Girl Scout ones. They are so easy to make.
- 1 lb
- bittersweet chocolate
- butterery round crackers (ritz)
- 1/2 tsp
- peppermint extract
1Using a double boiler method, melt the chocolate coatings over hot tap water for 15 - 20 minutes. Stir . Do not cook or get water into the chocolate.
2After it is melted, stir in a couple drops of peppermint flavor into the chocolate.
3Dip crackers into the melted chocolate and then place onto a cold cookie sheet and put into the refrigerator to set. (A freezing tray to rest the dipped cookies will keep the bottoms neat looking.)
4In a few minutes take them out and package in candy cups. The cookies are best kept at room temperature or a cool dry place away from any odors.
