Homemade Thin Mints

Category: Cookies, Vegetarian, Inexpensive, Quick & Easy, Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 1 box Ritz Crackers
  • 1 package Ghiradelli Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tbsp Crisco All Vegetable Shortening
  • 1.5 tsp peppermint extract


No bake and only 4 ingredients: Ritz crackers, semi-sweet chocolate chips, vegetable shortening, and peppermint extract


Put your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with the crisco and microwave until melted. Mix well.
Add in the peppermint extract. Taste the mix to be sure it”™s enough, and if you want it even more minty, add some. Just be careful that you don”™t add TOO much or your cookies will taste like mouthwash.
Dunk your Ritz Crackers into the chocolate until they”™re completely covered. Lay them out on a piece of wax paper or aluminum foil. Once you have a whole tray filled up, stick them in the fridge to harden up. The Ritz Cracker turns into a cookie once it firms up!
After the chocolate is firm, I placed all the cookies into a tupperware container and threw them in the freezer for easy storage.
