Easy Thin Mints

These remind me of Girl Scout Thin Mints and are super easy to make!

  • Ritz crackers
  • Andes mint chips (the kind you find in the baking isle)
  1. Empty the bag of Andes mints into a shallow saucepan.
  2. Heat on low (this is key), stirring continuously until all of the chips are melted & smooth.
  3. Drop a few Ritz crackers in the melted chips, turn over with a fork and turn once more (just until all sides are covered.)
  4. Remove and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
  5. Place the dipped crackers in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to set.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
  • One bag of Andes Mint Chips will do approximately two sleeves of Ritz.
  • Once the cookies are set, they don't need to be stored in the fridge. However, we love to leave them in the freezer for a summertime snack!
