Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins

12 Comments

Hey all,  I though that today that I would show you a recipe I am planning on making today.  I am sure they will turn out good… if not I will probably still eat them cause they are chocolate, and I am prego.  But these looked so cute and easy, I knew that I had to show them off.
 
Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins:
 
Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins
yields approx 36 thins
 
1 pkg (8 Squares) Baker’s Semi Sweet Chocolate, melted and lightly cooled
1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers (36 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 
(Kraft recommended placing them in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool, but I have always had problems with the chocolate blooming (getting white streaks)- maybe I get it too hot to begin with, so I wouldn’t try it!- tell me if you do and how it works out for you!) 
 
Optional versions:
Oreo cookies
 
Chocolate Peanut butter version: 
Omit the extract and spread the cracker with peanut butter before dipping n chocolate.
 
Omit extract and candy canes and use any holiday’s themed sprinkles

    >Hi Cassity! I wandered over here to visit you on this lovely sunday afternoon and I am now following your blog, facebook and tweets. This is my first time linking to your sunday recipe swap, and I am linking up a Giada recipe for cheese-stuffed dates with prosciutto that we had as a starter for our thanksgiving meal and it was a hit! I love your site, what a wonderful mix of projects, food and green! All the best, Alex@amoderatelife
