I had another post about homemade soap I was going to put up today but it is shoved out of the way for this monumental find.
You may have seen my post about some tasty lemon cookies I got from Dessert For Two.
At the same time I saw her recipe for Thin Mints. She used RITZ CRACKERS! I mean wtf, that is NOT a cookie substance, how could that even work? Next time I was at the store though I picked up some Ritz, chocolate chips, and some mint extract (I use it in my tea anyways). I had to see if the comments I saw were truthful. They said they tasted spot on.
Today I see that they were completely TRUE.
I was just trying this out so I didn’t take any pictures but when Peter found out what I was doing he swooped in with his phone. Glad he did.
Popped them in the freezer for 10 mins and had a taste. I was like WTF, this doesn’t even taste like a cracker, this is a cookie. I gave one to Peter and he quickly said, “Yup this is legit.”
- If your chocolate isn’t smooth add another teaspoon of shortening, it will smooth things out.
- Taste the chocolate mix for minty-ness. Add more if you don’t think it’s enough. A little goes a long way.
- These go great with milk or tea.
- Give these away to Thin Mint lovers, they will thank you many times over.
- No the salt on the crackers doesn’t make them salty. You can’t taste it. I think most of it melts with the chocolate and provides a nice flavor.
Go forth and make these!
