Faux Thin Mints out of Ritz Crackers
I saw this receipe at and had most of the ingredients, so I thought I would give it a try. The taste was surprisingly similar to the Thin Mints that you buy from the Girl Scouts, but was chewy.

Who would have thought a cracker could me made into a cookie!
I tweaked the ingredients from the original recipe as I did not have Milk Chocolate Chips by using the full bag of Dark Chocolate Chips and adding 2 TBSP margarine and 2 TBSP milk.

    To coat the crackers, I put them in the chocolate and lightly turned them over and covered each with chocolate with a spoon, then put on a parchment lined piece of wax paper to cool. After they cooled off for about 5 mins, I stuck them in freezer for about 10 minutes then served them.
