Ingredients

  • 10 ounces white chocolate melting wafers I use Ghirardelli
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 62 Ritz Crackers two sleeves

Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate wafers in a double boiler until smooth, stirring with a rubber spatula. Once the chocolate is melted, add the peppermint extract, mixing until incorporated.

  2. Dip the crackers in the melted chocolate and place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with red or green sprinkles. Once the sheet is full, place it in the freezer until the cookies are frozen.
  3. Store in a zip lock bag in the freezer.

Recipe Notes

Sometimes simply dipping the crackers doesn't get the chocolate on the cracker. I usually drop the cracker in the chocolate, flip it around a couple of times with forks or small tongs, and then pull it out. Tapping the fork or tongs against the side of the double broiler gets the excess chocolate off the cracker.
