    mandabears's Note:

    These are good, but not really the same as Thin Mints, but in a pinch they work. Thought this was an interesting recipe on its own.

      An easier way to do this recipe is to buy low sodium Ritz crackers (so there isn't so much salt) and Andes mint chocolate pieces--you can find these where you'd find chocolate chips. Melt the chips in a glass bowl in the microwave and stir until all pieces are melted. Dip the crackers in, place on parchment paper (I spray with a little Pam) and you have cookies that I think are BETTER than the favorite girl scout version.

      These are so easy & so good. I found that the store brand crackers work a little better because they aren't so salty.

      I also added more mint flavor to mint flavored chips. The flavor was there , I had a problem with the crispness
