Chocolate Mint Cookies (Copycat)

These will remind you of Girl Scout Thin Mints, this is a clone of the other copycat recipe when I couldnt find mint chocolate chips and all I had was bar chocolate. They keep great in the freezer!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs chocolate (milk, dark, or a combo)
  • 14 teaspoon peppermint oil (not extract)
  • 72 round buttery crackers (2 stacks like Hi-Ho or Ritz)


  1. Melt chocolate, I do it in the microwave 1 minute at a time, stirring after each minute, until chocolate is almost melted, then stir until completely melted.
  2. Add peppermint oil.
  3. Drop crackers 1 at a time into chocolate, coating all sides, I use toothpicks and try to grab the little holes in the crackers, but sometimes its just as easy to use your fingers.
  4. Place on wax paper to harden.
  5. Store airtight.

These are so yummy, best when frozen! Sometimes dipping them can be tricky, I use tongs. I also just use peppermint extract, and that seems to work well too. If it is for my Christmas trays, I like to sprinkle them with colored sugars.

Fun! My 6 yr old girl wa very skeptical about the whole cracker/chocolate thing..she said "well I don't think that's gonna taste very god with the salt and all mom"! Yummy rich treat Laurie. I used 1/2 semi chocolate and 1/2 milk but will go straight semi next time.
