Missy's Story

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

Directions Step-By-Step

Using 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.
After it is melted, stir in a couple drops of peppermint flavor into the chocolate.
Dip 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.)
In 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.
