Simple Thin Mint Cookies
1 bag safe chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp mint extract (the amount depends on how strong of a mint flavor you like)
2 1/2 sleeves Ritz crackers (we prefer Whole Wheat Ritz Crackers for these cookies)
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, thoroughly stir in the mint extract. Completely coat the crackers with the chocolate mixture then place them on waxed paper lined baking sheets. Place the baking sheets in the fridge to set the chocolate. Store the cookies in an open container in the fridge.
* If desired, coat the cookies with another layer of chocolate once the first coating has set. This step is not necessary, it just gives you a thicker layer of chocolate on the cookies.
* If desired, you can omit the mint or use another extract.
