This recipe was a hit everywhere I took them this Christmas! One thing I highly recommend doing is using the chocolate melting disks that is sold in craft stores in the candy section. I used Wilton brand Dark Chocolate Mint disks and they work wonderfully. There really is a difference in taste and texture.
I wasn't able to find mint chocolate chips in my local grocer so I used 2 bags of regular chocolate chips and 2 table spoons of mint extract. Tasted REALLY good. Not sure if you can get 60 cookies out of this recipe though? I used more chocolate chips than what was called for and only got 40, although my first 50-10 cookies I was too liberal with the chocolate probably accounting for 10 on the cookies anyway. This recipe is real easy to make and tastes pretty close the original! Thanks!
Closest thing you will ever eat to Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies! I used good semi-sweet chocolate and added peppermint extract as suggested by another member and it worked out perfect. I sprinkled each cookie with green sugar crystals.
I haven't made the recipe myself but I have eaten them and they are fabulous! I will definitley be making them next Christmas. I have to note the I was leary of the ritz crackers but you would never know that there was a salty cracker as the base. (Martha Stewart made these on her show recently but called them Ritz Mints.)
My family loved these. Thanx for posting. They were extremly easy to make.
