      Love um. Easy as can be. I made 2 batches as written and 2 batches with the andes mint chips. I like them better as written. You get a thicker coating of chocolate and I think the flavor is closer to the girl scout cookies. Thanks for this great simple holiday cookie! Update - couldn't remember what type of chocolate I used the last time so I used semi sweet chips this time. I think they're better with milk chocolate! The problem people are having with the chocolate seizing when they add the extract can be fixed very simply - you add the extract to the chips and toss BEFORE putting over the heat. The seizing is caused by the temp difference. Using tweezers is also a great idea!

      I enjoyed these. I was craving the mint and chocolate combo so this was quick fix. I just bit into them and let the chocolate, cracker and mint taste melt away in my mouth. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and peppermint oil instead of extract because that is what I had on hand and also added a bit of butter to the melting chocolate and it got this lovely glossy look to it. Since I used peppermint oil I slowly added it in using a toothpick so it would not be overpowering. Now to dip these, this may sound funny - I took a plastic fork and broke off the middle two "sprongs" and it was a perfect handler for holding the cracker and turning it in the chocolate, lifting it out and putting it on the sheet. Quick and easy and the mint taste just lingers in your mouth afterward. I like it, thanks for sharing.

      Made these with a friend to take to a cookie exchange and they were a huge hit! Very messy to make but simply delicious. Used semisweet melting chocolate and had to add quite a bit of sugar to make it sweet enough. Probably ended up using 2 tsp of peppermint extract as well. Will definitely be making again! Thanks!
