Ritz Cracker Thin Mints
40 salted Ritz crackers
16 ounces chocolate 1 pound or approx 2 1/2 cups
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil or coconut oil
Place chocolate and vegetable oil in a bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of gently simmering water (ensuring the bowl doesn't touch the water). Stir gently until melted. Once melted, stir in the extract.
Dip crackers into the chocolate mixture and allow excess to drip off.
Place on a parchment-lined pan and refrigerate until cooled.
Try substituting Peppermint with Wintergreen, Spearmint or Cinnamon for a different flavor.
Ritz thin mints will keep for 3-4 months or even longer in the freezer. Place in zippered baggies on the door of your freezer so that yummy chocolate fix will always be in easy reach! No thawing required!
