Copycat Thin Mint Cookies - Crazy Easy!


  • 1 cup chocolate of choice (see note)
  • 3/4 tsp mint extract
  • 18 Ritz Crackers (Approx)


1_ Melt chocolate. You can use whatever chocolate you prefer - dark, semi-sweet chips, chocolate “coating” “confectionery” or “dipping” wafers or chocolate with a bit of coconut oil or shortening mixed into it. I used Wilbur dark chocolate wafers.

2_ Melt via bain marie method, short bursts in the microwave or in a saucepan. I prefer the bain marie method - it's easiest to control and maintain the chocolate temp. I do not bother tempering the chocolate for this recipe.

3_ Mix in ¾ teaspoon mint extract to melted chocolate. This might cause your chocolate to thicken up a little - depending on what type of chocolate you're using.

4_ Dip the Ritz crackers in the chocolate. I drop it in the bowl, gently flip it around with a fork and remove it carefully with two forks. Let excess chocolate drip off. If chocolate is too viscous, you might have to scrape excess off.

5_ Place dipped cookies onto cookie sheet with wax paper.

6_ Cool and store cookies in fridge. These cookies are best eaten straight from the fridge. Enjoy : )
