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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing taste & so easy. Amazing taste & so easy. I didn't have a lot of luck with the dipping & mess, so I spread the chocolate on top like icing -- it was also easier to eat with bare edges. I like both versions so I spread peanut butter on half the crackers & iced them then added 1/8 tsp. peppermint to the remaining chocolate and iced the rest. So good... two different treats in 10 minutes.

Then, I melted choc chips and put them in a ziplok bag. Then I cut a small hole in the bag, and I piped the chocolate on the cracker in a zig zag way. Then I added sprinkles. Very easy, fast, and looked great.

These are simple and awesome, for the peanut butter variety I mixed some peanut butter chips with some semi-sweet choc. chips, it eliminated having to spread the peanut butter on the cracker and tasted the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These were really good! These were really good! Although 8oz of chocolate did not make 32 mint thins. Which is good, b/c we ate all that we made-about 15. Glad I made them and they are very easy. The kids helped!
