How to Make Thin Mints (homemade)


  • 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.)
