Very clever and yummy (can't tell its a ritz cracker in there; its salt balances the sweet and mint favors) ...but difficult to coat. Either the cracker is too delicate or the chocolate too thick. I had to keep melting it again n again to get it to coat.

I made these with the andes creme de menthe chips. They were fabulous. I took some to work to share and my boss kept them all they were so good. I used the two forks method to get the cookies out and on the tray to dry

I actually didn't make this but my teen-age sons did. Very easy to do. Some we spread with peanut butter, some we didn't. Quick and easy recipe to fill those Christmas Holiday Cookie Trays. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
