Day 10: Thin Mints

I think you will either love or hate these crackers. I had a lot of people who love thin mint cookies, say these tasted almost just like them, and they loved them! Other people just didn't the idea of a chocolate on a cracker. I really enjoyed them, and I hope you will too!

Thin Mints
Makes 80

  • 1 pound bittersweet chocolate
  • 80 Ritz crackers
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  1. Melt chocolate using a double boiler or the microwave. (Do not overheat or get water into the chocolate)
  2. Once chocolate is melted, stir in a couple drops of peppermint flavor into the chocolate.
  3. Dip crackers into the melted chocolate and then place onto a cold cookie sheet and put into the refrigerator to set. (The cold sheet tray will keep the bottoms neat.)
  4. After a few minutes take them out and package them up.
If you'd like to add sprinkles or crushed peppermint, do so after dipping and before refrigerating.



  1. Wow. I was so surprised to see that these are made with Ritz crackers. Can't wait to try them!

  2. These look so festive and yummy, and are so simple-great combo! Chocolate on crackers sounds good to me! :)

  3. I've never seen this idea before - but love it! I think these mints would go down a treat :)

  4. Love, love, love thin mints--and these look so easy! Thanks for the recipe!
