Day 11 - Easy No Bake Thin Mints



These are the perfect treats for last minute gifts (nestled up in your Homemade Gift Cans) or a yummy snack for a family get together!


Easy
No Bake Thin Mints


Ingredients:


  • 1 pkg (8 Squares) Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate, melted and lightly cooled


  • 1/4 tsp Mint Extract


  • 1 sleeve Ritz Crackers (35 crackers)


  • 1 candy cane (6 inch) crushed


Instructions:
Mix Melted Chocolate and Mint Extract together until smooth.


Dip Crackers in chocolate, turning to completely coat each cracker. Carefully scrap off excess chocolate. Place crackers in a single layer, on wax paper-covered baking sheets, sprinkle with crushed candy cane.




Allow to cool, until chocolate is firm.

Some great variations: Use Oreos, Nilla Wafers, pretzels, or Nutter Butters. You can also omit the candy canes and use holiday sprinkles!

Pin It!
