Merry Christmas! I wanted to share one more fun cookie recipe with you before you are sick of looking at cookies :) These will remind you of those yummy mint Girl Scout cookies. They are super easy to make and the are really good.
This recipe is free of milk, eggs, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, fish and shellfish
*Could be wheat free if you used the right cracker
1 10 oz bag of Enjoy Life semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
about 36 crackers (I love Back to Nature Classic Rounds because they do not have trans fat or other junk in them..BUT they do have wheat...so you can pick your favorite wheat free cracker to substitute for this recipe).
1 safe peppermint candy cane (or dinner mints) crushed
Microwave chocolate in a small microwaveable bowl. Make sure to do it a little at a time, so you do not burn the chocolate. Stir until completely melted. Blend in extract.
Dip crackers in melted chocolate, completely coating crackers (I gently set one side in the chocolate, and then flip it over into the chocolate). Place on waxed paper covered baking sheets; sprinkle with safe crushed candy.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm
