Thin Mint Crackers

*Adapted from c/o Michella Koryta

These taste very similar to the Girl Scout thin mint cookies & are less fattening.

1/2 box Ritz crackers
1 lb. bittersweet or milk chocolate (I use milk chocolate chips)
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract

Melt chocolate in the microwave in a medium size bowl.  Stir in peppermint extract.  Dip crackers into melted chocolate until coated. (I use chopsticks if available to dip crackers).  Remove dipped crackers & place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.  Depending on the temperature in your kitchen, you may want to stick your cookie sheet in the freezer first so that the bottoms of the dipped crackers don't melt.  (You will still want to use wax paper with a cold tray).  When your sheet is full, place in fridge.  These are best kept in the fridge or a cool place until served.  Look good served in candy cups.  You can also top with sprinkles to add variety.
