Contest-Winning Chocolate Mint Wafers

I created these melt-in-your-mouth treats for a cookie exchange, and everyone raved about them. My family requests them often, and they're my daughter's favorite cookies. To switch up the flavor, try using different extracts instead of peppermint. -Michelle Kester, Cleveland, Ohio

    I used Ritz crackers instead of the wafers, they are wonderful. Look for the snowflake shaped ones for Christmas.

    How lovely...crisp and light and wonderfully chocolate-ey and minty. Disappeared in a flash at my house! Thanks for sharing, Michelle!

    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.
