Homemade Thin Mint Cookies

  • 1 sleeve Round Whole Wheat Crackers
  • 1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

Melt chocolate chips on a double broiler or in the microwave in 30 second increments.  Once the chocolate is melted, stir in peppermint extract.  Using a fork, dip individual crackers into the chocolate, coating both sides.  Lay coated crackers on parchment paper. Chill in refrigerator until chocolate is set.  Store in airtight container.
