Ritz Thin Mints

Easiest recipe ever!

Ritz Thin Mints


  • Ritz Crackers
  • Chocolate Chips or Wilton Chocolate melts
  • 1 t peppermint extract
  • crushed candy canes optional


  1. Melt your chocolate according to package directions. (Remember that if your chocolate isn't thin enough you can add a little vegetable shortening to it. Never add water, it seizes up the chocolate.)
  2. Add peppermint extract to your chocolate.
  3. Dip Ritz crackers in chocolate and remove to wax or parchment paper to harden.
  4. If you want to add the crushed candy canes, sprinkle on top of chocolate while still wet.

Another post that I scheduled from January. These are a huge hit in our house. My husband craves them.

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a "baby "chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she's still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She's since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
