Reviews for Contest-Winning Chocolate Mint Wafers
"This are good when you are craving that certain mint wafer cookie, when it's the wrong time of year lol"
"C ftytxytfdtfydd ft y"
"Can these be shipped thru mail. My granddaughter in college would love these"
"I used Ritz crackers instead of the wafers, they are wonderful. Look for the snowflake shaped ones for Christmas."
"I have done these this way..but instead of vanilla wafers you can use ritz crackers..."
"How lovely...crisp and light and wonderfully chocolate-ey and minty. Disappeared in a flash at my house! Thanks for sharing, Michelle!"
"Similar to Grasshopper cookies."
"Just like girl scout cookies.Another option is to mix in peanut butter instead of mint. Amazing!"
"These were great! My husband ate them all that night, and said they were just like the girl scout cookies."
"I didn't feel like hunting the grocery stores for dark chocolate candy coating, so I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. They are okay, but I'm not impressed. Maybe they would be better with the candy coating it calls for."
"Awesome recipe, made these for my work for a St. Patrick's Day party and everyone raved about them. I refrigerated the cookies after dipping them in the chocolate and they hardened quickly. A great and cheap substitute for thin mints."
"I didn't have wafers, so I used graham crackers. My family loved them!"
"These were so easy and yummy! When i made them, the chocolate covered 62 wafers, which is a lot more than the 24 the recipe said it would make, which changes the nutritional value(62 might be to many though becuase some of them didn't get much chocolate on them). I also used 4 oz Ghiradelli dark/bittersweet 60% cacao instead of chocolate candy coating and it worked fine."
"So easy and tasted even better then thin mint cookies. My family loves them."
"Love, love, loved it. It was YUMMY!"
"I made these with mini wafers and they were delicious! Also, I made a batch without the mint and instead added a heaping spoonful of peanut butter. AMAZING! This recipe has endless possibilities and will certainly be making them again. These will be a great addition to my Christmas treats this year"
"I make these with Ritz crackers and they are always a hit. I use the regular salted ritz and the little bit of salt really works well with the chocolate! I'll have to compare them to the vanilla wafers, as I always thought the cracker made it taste just like the Thin Mints."
"I tried it using the dark chocolate but thought it was much better using the milk chocolate almond bark (also easier to dip with)"
"These are excellent, and so easy to make, they're a keeper, for sure. My family absolutely loves them and helps me make them every chance we get."
"These were a huge hit! Taste just like GirlScout Thin Mint cookies."
"Excellent! These were a hug"
"Pretty good and very easy. I just couldnt find dark chocolate coating so I just used milk chocolate."
"This cookie is fabulous!!! So easy and fast!! You can find the candy coating at Michaels craft store. I also took the advice from someone who said to use a fork to dip the wafer and then tap the side of the bowl. It worked perfectly. You will NOT be disappointed when you make these!"
"On the same line, you can take vanilla wafers and put peanut butter between two of them, and then dip in the white chocolate. Very good. I have tried this recipe and it is very good. 4 stars EVL"
"These were great! I even used some melted white candy coating and decorated little flowers on them! Very tasty!"
"Wilton (cake supplier) and CK Products make candy coating. You can make candies or use for dipping. They have a lot of flavors. Hope this helps!!"
"I, too, would like specifics regarding the dark chocolate candy coating. Can anyone help? Thanks."
"What kind of chocolate candy coating is used for this recipe?"
"You can also do this with hi ho crackers and they taste just like mint cookies from girl scouts"
"I think these would be great using chocolate wafers, I am gonna try them.(almost like girlscout thin mints)"
"I have been doing this with Ritz Crackers for the past few Christmases. I will try the vanilla wafers, too."
"I just did this recently using Ritz crackers. Everyone enjoyed them!"
"Re:Chocolate Mint Wafers I use a fork or tongs to dip cookies into melted chocolate. Once they have been throughly dipped I lift them out, letting the run off chocolate drip back into the bowl, before placing them onto a wax paper lined tray.hi2udlr"
"What is the best way to dip the cookies and/or crackerrs in the melted chocolate? I have visions of gooey chocolate all over fingers, forks or other utensils."
""Dot" is usually a nickname for Dorothy. Maybe she was simply signing her comment."
"doratheasmith -what does "...dot" mean?"
"This was the easiest treat to make and tasted great too! Reminded me of Girl Scout Mint cookies. While the chocolate was still warm I sprinkled red & green colored sugar on them and used them as Christmas gifts. I will definitely make these again next year. Thanks for this quick recipe!"
"i use ritz crackers and peanut butter like a sandwich and cover with chocolate...dot"
"I love the Ritzcrackers,but I tried ginger snap cookies,tasted great!!!!"
"We too use Ritz crackers. They are so simple and easy to make and do taste like scout cookies."
"We have used this recipe in our family for a number of years. Instead of vanilla wafers, we use ritz crackers. They taste like the famous mint cookies sold by the girl scouts and look like them too."
