Easy Mint Thins
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + standing
I have been making a similar version since 1982. I use a few drops (5-6) peppermint oil, not extract. It gives it more peppermint flavor, and doesn't thicken the chocolate like I have found extract to do. They remind me of the thin mints before they started using a chocolate cookie. I also find the salted crackers to be necessary to the overall taste.
This is quick and easy, and it tastes good, but it definitely does not taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints or the Keebler Grasshopper cookies. It tastes like Ritz crackers, dipped in chocolate, which is not a bad thing at all, just not a Thin Mint. It has that salty cracker flavor that the cookies do not have.
