Faux Girl Scout Mint Cookies

Donated By Theresa


  • package of Ritz, or Town House round crackers
  • 12 oz bag of Chocolate chips
  • 2-3 Tbs of Crisco or butter
  • peppermint flavoring


  1. Temper & melt the chocolate. Melt the chocolate chips in either a double boiler or in the microwave with the butter or Crisco. Be careful not to burn it. If you microwave, only for ~30 seconds at a time and stir… repeat, until it’s melted and smooth. Set it aside to cool down a little.
  2. 2. Open the sleeve of the crackers and make them quickly accessible. Cover a cookie sheet (2 or more) with wax paper.

    3. Drop a couple of drops of peppermint extract or oil into your chocolate and mix. Taste it. You can add more drops until you reach the taste you desire. Remember: you can always add, but you can’t take away. If you find you’ve ‘over done it’ melt some more chocolate and add it into the mix to cut back the peppermint.

    4. Drop the crackers one at a time into your bowl of peppermint chocolate. Make sure that the cracker is fully covered. Lift the cracker up out of the mix – I use a fork – and let the excess chocolate drip off. You can tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to speed up the process. Lay the cracker onto the cookie sheet with the wax paper. Fill the sheet(s) up and let them ‘dry/harden’. You can also speed up this process by placing the cookie sheet into a refrigerator or other cold location.

    5. Once the chocolate hardens, you can easily peel them off the wax paper. Store the cookies in a air tight – sealed container. I often use Ziploc bags and toss them into the freezer.
