Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins and Recipe Link-up Party

05 December 2010

Hey all,  I though that today that I would show you a recipe I am planning on making today.  I am sure they will turn out good... if not I will probably still eat them cause they are chocolate, and I am prego.  But these looked so cute and easy, I knew that I had to show them off.

Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins:

Easy No bake, Holiday Mint Thins
yields approx 36 thins

1 pkg (8 Squares) Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate, melted and lightly cooled
1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers (36 crackers)
1 candy cane (6 inch) crushed

Mix Melted Chocolate and Mint Extract together until smooth.

Dip Crackers in chocolate, turning to completely coat each cracker.  Carefully scrap off excess chocolate.  Place crackers in a single layer, on wax paper-covered baking sheets, sprinkle with crushed candy cane.

Allow to cool, until chocolate is firm 
(Kraft recommended placing them in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool, but I have always had problems with the chocolate blooming (getting white streaks)- maybe I get it too hot to begin with, so I wouldn't try it!- tell me if you do and how it works out for you!) 

Optional versions:
Oreo cookies

Chocolate Peanut butter version: 
Omit the extract and spread the cracker with peanut butter before dipping n chocolate.

Omit extract and candy canes and use any holiday's themed sprinkles

I've made a recipe with ritz crackers, peanut butter and chocolate before, but this one is new to me and sounds yummy! Simple too, which I love.

My first time at your party - thanks so much for hosting!

This looks delicious. Wish I had a recipe to add, but I don't have any new posts for now.

Hi Cassity! I wandered over here to visit you on this lovely sunday afternoon and I am now following your blog, facebook and tweets. This is my first time linking to your sunday recipe swap, and I am linking up a Giada recipe for cheese-stuffed dates with prosciutto that we had as a starter for our thanksgiving meal and it was a hit! I love your site, what a wonderful mix of projects, food and green! All the best, Alex@amoderatelife
