80 cookies


  • 1 pound semi sweet chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • 80 buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®)

  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract


  1. Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just barely simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula, until chocolate is melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Do not get any water into the chocolate.

  2. While the chocolate is melting, line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set in the freezer to chill.

  3. Remove melted chocolate from the stove and stir in peppermint extract.

  4. Dip crackers into melted chocolate and then place on the cold, prepared baking sheets. Set the baking sheets in the refrigerator until chocolate sets, about 5 minutes.

  5. Package cookies in candy cups if desired. Store at room temperature or in a cool, dry place away from any odors.

    Cook's Note:

    You can also use bittersweet chocolate instead of semi sweet.
