How About Some Super-Easy Mint Chocolate Ritz Cookies??
Make them up ahead of time – they are perfect for office parties or family gatherings. Beware, though, they are addictive!!
Mint Chocolate Ritz Cookies:
1 Sleeve of Ritz Crackers
1 package of meltable chocolate mint candies – I like Wilton Dark Cocoa Mint, sold where Wilton cake decorating supplies are sold – I get mine at Michaels Crafts stores.
2 squares of vanilla almond bark
Melt the chocolate mint in the microwave, it takes about 30 seconds. Stir after 15 seconds.
Dip 1/2 of a Ritz Cracker into the melted chocolate, and set on wax paper to dry. Do this with each Ritz.
When the chocolate has dried, melt the almond bark in the microwave for about 30 seconds, stirring after 15 seconds.
Dip the other half of each cracker into the almond bark and set on wax paper to dry.
You can also dip the entire cracker into the chocolate, and use the almond bark as a drizzle over the cracker.
Dipping mini vanilla wafers into the chocolate makes a great cookie as well. Mixed with the larger Ritz cookies, they make an attractive platter.
