My husband just loves mint thins and I saw that you could mix mint flavoring into chocolate, but I found Andes Mint pieces and these Mint Thins were born. The crushed peppermint on top just adds some prettyness to them.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg
    dark chocolate(or regular milk chocolate)
  • 1/2 pkg
    andes mint pieces(or less if you do not like the mint to be too strong.)
  • 2 pkg
    ritz crackers
  • 1 stick
    peppermint candy crushed(for topping)

How to Make Mint Thins

Step-by-Step

  1. Crush peppermint candy into small chunks in a plastic bag. Set aside.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Start at 30 seconds first and for each additional spin through the microwave, only goo 10 seconds at a time to keep the chocolate from burning.
  3. Add the mint pieces and stir, microwave at 5 seconds intervals if mixture is not melted all the way.
  4. Take the Ritx crackers and drop into the chocolate/mint mix and coat evenly on both sides. Decorate with a few peppermint candy pieces. Set on either aluminum foil or waxed paper until firm.
  5. Enjoy!
