This is a very simple way to get your fix of those crispy, chocolatey, minty cookies. I had seen a similar recipe and they used Andes baking chips. I had never heard of them. But sure enough, there they were at Target! I almost paid the $3 for the bag, but realized I probably had all the ingredients at home to make them just as good. Be warned that once you eat one, you will want to keep going until the whole platter is gone!
Total Time: 10 minutes, plus time for the chocolate to harden
Yield: About 20 "cookies"
I have seen several recipes for faux Girl Scout cookies made with Ritz crackers dipped in mint chocolate. I did mine a bit differently.
Melt the chocolate and wax.
Put some fondant in the middle of a Ritz cracker and press and form with fingers on top to the edge. When chocolate is melted, use a knife and spread the chocolate over the top and down the edges of the cracker and set on wax paper to dry.
You may prefer to dip the whole cracker. I also have ground up candy canes and sprinkled on top of the wet chocolate. These also freeze well.
