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