Sandra Lee - Mint Wafers

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by mandabears

This is a Semi-Homemade, easy, delicious recipe. I don't use the Peppermint extract, DH doesn't like mint, but have used both Lemon and Vanilla extracts with good results. I'll post it with the peppermint.

Very easy -- but must heat the chocolate slowly or it gets too thick and won't stick. Almost as good as the real Girl Scout Thin Mints.
