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
We thought these were awesome! I actually found this recipe elsewhere and came to see if anyone had posted. They are absolutely delish! I used a 1/2 tsp peppermint extract instead of peppermint oil. We liked that little bit of saltiness the crackers added. I will be making these again. Next time though I might try 1/2 Tbsp of crisco - just because I never use crisco. I had to go out and buy a small can as it is not something we keep in the house. We store them in the freezer and eat them right out of the freezer. The fridge might be good too if you don't like them frozen.
These are very good! They're messy to make but so worth it! I agree with other members, to use low salt crackers! And I love the Andes candy idea too! I'll have to try that! I added my photo!
This is very good. I have made this several times and everyone loves it !!!
i think that the salt on the crackers don't give the thin mint taste, but other than that they are good!
