The following recipes are the most simplest recipes, yet one of them is another version of a famous cookies that we all love; Girl Scout Thin Mints. This will be a popular recipe at Christmas time with the colored candies crushed on top. What's so hard to put chocolate on top of Ritz crackers and then crushed colorful peppermint candies on top..?? I will say...nothing. You will appreciate that crispy chocolate treat later.
1 pkg (8 squares) baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted, slightly cooled
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 sleeve ritz crackers (36 crackers)
1 candy cane (6 inch), crushed
1 MIX chocolate and extract.
2 DIP crackers in chocolate mixture, turning to completely coat each cracker. Carefully scrape off excess
Place crackers in single layer on waxed paper-covered baking sheets; sprinkle with crushed candy.
3 REFRIGERATE 30 min. or until chocolate is firm.
