I was first introduced to these when a friend's mom brought them to a Christmas cookie exchange. And they are so unbelievably easy that I find myself tempted to make them just about as frequently as I crave Girl Scout cookies (as in daily!). With it being Girl Scout cookie season and all plus the fact that St. Patty's Day is this weekend (and somehow I think mint goes along with it...green=mint, right? anyone else?), I figured now was a good time to share the recipe with you all.
- bag of chocolate mint chips/wafers (friend's mom recommended AC Moore brand, and I probably agree they are the best, but the Andes ones are pretty tasty as well!)
- sleeve of Ritz crackers (I used reduced fat)
1. Melt chocolate wafers in double boiler. Obviously, you could do this in the microwave as well, but I prefer the double boiler so the chocolate stays melted.
2. Using a slotted spoon, coat the Ritz in chocolate. Remove them to parchment paper.
3. Allow chocolate to "solidify."
Seriously, y'all, I warn you...these things are addicting; just like the real thing! I made them this time for a St. Patrick's Day party we have this weekend, and needless to say, I don't think they're going to make them there!
