Chocolate Mint 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.



  • Ritz crackers (whole wheat)
  • milk chocolate morsels
  • parafin wax

No Cook Fondant:

  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter (softened) (not margarine)
  • 1/3 cup light Karo syrup
  • peppermint extract (to taste)


Combine fondant ingredients together to form a soft ball. Put in air tight container.

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.

These sound good, but our local Dollar General, carries a chocolate mint cookie, $1.00 a box, that tastes just like the Girl Scout cookies.

Hey Dee..

Sometimes you can't beat them dollar stores. Merry Christmas!

Sounds great. I have the original recipe too. It just has melted chocolate, crackers and peppermint drops. I'll have to fool around with this one. I think orange would taste good in the fondant instead of mint.
