Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT recipe. EXCELLENT recipe. The BEST mint cookie I've EVER had! I used Almond Bark like others had suggested (Use entire pkg of 1lb 8 oz, double the extract, and makes two sleeves - about 64 cookies). I also crushed 20 round peppermints (placed in sandwich baggie and hit with hammer outside on concrete) and sprinkled the top while WET with the peppermint using a teaspoon. My daughter and I could whip these out in about 45 minutes from start to finish. I really can't brag on these enough. When I posted the picture on Facebook, my neighbors immediately messaged me asking for a sample. Good times!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just finished making these cookies. I just finished making these cookies. They look beautiful and taste great, but they're melty when out of the refrigerator, so I cannot share them with co-workers as I had planned. I also used Baker's chocolate squares like another reviewer. I will probably make them using a different kind of semi-sweet chocolate next time. I made the peanut butter version many years ago, although my recipe called for spreading the peanut butter between two Ritz crackers and then dipping them in melted milk chocolate. Delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one is a keeper! This one is a keeper! My husband was reluctant at first with the thought of using Ritz - but these are AWESOME! Best to keep cold either in the fridge or freezer. We also dipped marshmallows and Oreos ~ Yum! We left the peppermint candies off the top, but if I were giving these as a gift or had them out for company, I'd decorate them with the crushed mints. You must try! Also, I used tongs to pick up the crackers and used spatula to wipe off excess and melted over the stove using double boiler method.

I substituted half milk chocolate chips and half semi sweet chips instead of baker's chocolate. I also put a little Crisco in the chocolate to make it smooth and it gave it a great glaze. I used my twirly chocolate dipper and had no problem with a mess. I also crushed the peppermint and used a spoon to garnish. They looked just like the picture in the magazine. I can't wait to share with my friends tomorrow!!

I was skeptical about combining Ritz crackers with chocolate but the ratings were so good that i had to see for myself. I made them yesterday for a gift but they wont make it to the intended recipient because we just couldn't help but eat them. I really thought (because of the comments) that this was going to be messy but it only got a little messy having to dip the crackers and then at the end when your scraping what's left of the chocolate to get it out of the pan and onto the crackers.

My only complaint is I find the peppermint candies and the candy canes hard to crush to a fine enough texture. I had some caramels on hand, so I made another variation where I spread a thin layer of melted caramel on the cracker and let it set before I dipped into the bare chocolate. With the peanut butter and caramel varieties, I would use Milk Chocolate instead of semi sweet or bitter sweet. Definitely will make again. The possibilities are endless!

I made a few extra for my husband & I to try, just in case. WOW! are they good and wouldn't guess they are Ritz crackers. I am bringing the recipe with me to the cookie exchange as I am sure everyone will want to know how to make them. A bit messy, but otherwise very easy. Too late I saw a tip about using tweezers to hold them. Will try that next time. And there will be a next time..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great, simple, tasty treat! What a great, simple, tasty treat! I don't love peppermint so I omitted the extract and they tasted sooooo good. I didn't think of tweezers so I used a wooden skewer, poked it through the middle whole in the cracker and swirled it around. Worked fine once I got the hang of it. Also, I wanted to use up the little bit of melted chocolate so I dipped marshmallows in it and then sprinkled with christmas colored sprinkles..they were a big hit too!
