This was soooo quick and easy. I made these for Christmas and everyone thought I bought them. I will be adding them to my Christmas cookies next year. For Easter I'll use white chocolate .

These were simple to make and were very delicious. Keep them refrigerated until just before serving as they melt quite easily.

AWESOME! I made one batch of the mint thins and one batch of the variation...chocolate peanut butter cookies. They were a huge hit with my children and tasted just like the girl scout cookies thin mints and tag a longs. I know we will be making these often.

I made both the mint chocolate and the chocolate peanut butter cookies - very easy to make. They were a hit at my work Christmas Party!

Tonight I made my second batch of these - the first batch were given as gifts (I was quickly besieged by several requests for the recipe!). I adore the Girlscouts Thin Mints, so when I saw this recipe in the mag, I HAD to try them. In a word: WOW. Previous posters considered these messy - I really didn't. I used a pair of kitchen tongs to flip the cracker in the chocolate (be GENTLE so as not to break the cracker), then had a rubber spatula in my other hand to scrape off the choc. I found that it was a good idea to scrape the bottom of the cracker, but I left the top unscraped. If you don't, you end up seeing the cracker through the chocolate. I still ended up getting a full sleeve out of my chocolate. I also added a bit of veg oil to my choc - makes 'em glossy and it sets the choc nicely. I would definitely recommend keeping them stored in the fridge. Just as a previous poster mentioned, I added a bit more extract than it called for - otherwise, they just weren't minty enough. I also

I made these for the teacher's at my school. They LOVED them! I melted my chocolate in a double-boiler though and it worked well. We will definitely make them again.

I found this to be messy and dificult to make. The taste is good but the presentation did not turn out well. I will not be making this again

Delicious! Everyone made the comment of how they tasted like the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies! I always ate one more then I should have saying to myself the cracker was healthy for me! My only problem was that it didn't make a whole pack of crackers (about 3/4 of it), maybe I used too much chocolate on the crackers!

These were very good and easy to make! The next time I think I will double the peppermint extract. They weren't as minty as I liked. But very similar to the very famous kind you can only get once a year!
