Ritzy Christmas Mint Cookies


The very first Christmas cookie exchange that I went to had some amazing cookies, but the one recipe that caught all of our attention was the thin mints Susan made....out of Ritz crackers.

Yes, you read it right---RITZ CRACKERS! 
I'm sure the recipe was on a Ritz cracker box, but I'd never seen them.
 Really, they were so good! 

Here's the recipe for these Ritzy Chocolate Mint Cookies:

1/2 lb semi-sweet dark chocolate chips
2-3 drops peppermint extract
1 sleeve of Ritz Crackers
Some crushed candy canes

Melt dark chocolate over low heat or in a glass cup at 15-second intervals in the microwave (stir after each 15 seconds.) Stir 2-3 drops of peppermint extract into the melted chocolate (don't use too much peppermint--the 2-3 drops is plenty.) Using a fork or dipping tool, dip each Ritz Cracker in the melted chocolate. Place on a foil covered cookie sheet making sure they don't touch each other. Sprinkle each chocolate dipped cracker with a small amount of crushed candy cane. Chill. Eat. Enjoy.
