Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

If you love 'Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies' you will love this recipe because it tastes VERY similar! Girl Scouts only sell cookies once per year, so I had to come up with a way to have these all year round.

I found this recipe many years ago. It was posted on a cooking site by one of my favorite home cooks known as Marky90.  I've made these cookies many times and everyone loves them. If you can melt and dip chocolate, you can make these cookies! Just make sure to use 'peppermint' and not 'mint' extract because 'mint' is made from the leaves of a mint plant. And 'peppermint' is made from pure peppermint oil, which is more like the flavor of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies.

2 sleeves of Ritz brand classic crackers
1 & 1/2 pounds peppermint chocolate chips

NOTE...If you can't find peppermint chocolate chips just use
regular chocolate chips(milk choc or semi-sweet) and add 1 tsp. peppermint extract. Extract must be 'peppermint' not just 'mint'.

Melt mint chips in microwave according to directions on package.
Or if using regular chips, add in the extract before melting the chips.
Stir melted chips.
Keep the chips warm and melted by placing
the bowl of melted chips over a simmering pan of water.
Do not let the bowl touch the water
or get any water on the melted chocolate or the
chocolate will seize and become unusable.
Dip each cracker completely into the melted chocolate in a thin layer.
This will be messy but so worth it!
Place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet and freeze until firm.
Once chocolate is firm place cookies on a platter to serve
or store in an air tight container.
Serves about 8-10 people.
