Homemade Chocolate Covered Ritz Crackers

Who thinks of putting chocolate on crackers? The test kitchen people at Kraft, that’s who. And that’s why my future does not include being in a test kitchen,  I am just not bold enough. I am not cut out for adventurous cooking like this.

But…they are salty…they are sweet….they have chocolate…and they have mint.

Hawt damn, what a combo.

Ingredients:

2 cups of chocolate chips
1/3 tsp mint flavoring
box of Ritz crackers
1 peppermint candy cane, crushed

Sigh. Love it. That is a pile of happy below, y’all. A PILE O’ HAPPY, I tell you.

Melt your chocolate chips.

Stir in your mint flavoring, and get ready to dip!Dip…

..then place on wax paper. The number of treats you end up with depend on if you are a heavy dipper or a light dipper

Once the dipping is done, time to sprinkle!

Oh lord. These are my favorite crunchy salty sweet minty snack. Just look at that perfection.

    I have made them for years we always have called them girl guide cookies.

    I made these for a cookie exchange at a previous workplace. Everyone liked these best, even over the more difficult cookies to make

    Made these last week and they are great! I used Lindt milk chocolate for some and mixed 70% Lindt dark with milk chocolate for the rest. Great way to use up some old candy canes! On my list for next year for sure!

  5. Hi Karlynn, thank you so much for your website. Your recipes are a marvel. I just did these with my daughter for Christmas baking gifts. A little more finicky than I was expecting (probably cuz you make everything sound sooooo easy!) My girl got right in there and sprinkled for me, she even went and got her bell to let me know when she was ready for the next one. LOL Surfing those Ritz around took a little time. They turned out amazing though!! I am very happy and thanking my lucky stars for finding your website. Thanks again, next we are tackling your cream cheese truffles.

  6. What would I do with out you? I was just trying to figure out what to to take as my contribution for the kids xmas party this weekend. These look yummy, festive and my fave part easy to make! Thanks for another great idea!
