Super Simple Make Your Own Thin Mints

I learned how to make these from a woman in our church, at an Apples Of Gold class.  :-)

Ritz Crackers
Mint Chocolate Melting Wafers

That's it.  Really.

I get the wafers at Ac Moore.  They go on sale for $1.77 a bag, and when they do, I stock up.  do not like the chocolate wafers from Michaels - they are too waxy, in my opinion.

I found Ritz crackers at our grocery outlet (Wengers in Mifflinburg)

You can melt the chocolate in the microwave - just make sure the bowl and spoon are COMPLETELY dry.  One speck of water can make chocolate seize.

We don't have a microwave here (no big health reason, I just got tired of them dying, and we don't really use it..  a counter top convection oven was under $40 and works better for reheating food)

I have a melting pan similar to this one. I paid under $20- check Michaels or JoAnns and use a coupon for a good deal on one.  If you melt a lot of chocolate (we make a LOT of peanut butter eggs each year) it's well worth the investment.

To coat the crackers, drop them in, then lift out with a fork, shaking the cracker back and forth gently to even out the chocolate and remove the excess.  Then place on wax paper, or parchment paper, to dry.


  1. G'day! These are on the list to do!
