Christmas Cookies~Mint Thins~Day 4

The cookie that I am sharing with you today, is quick, easy and no bake. I’m not really sure that they qualify as a cookie, but they are very festive. And there are many possibilities with these Mint Thins.

Mint Thins.fixed.1


  • Ritz Crackers
  • Almond Bark
  • Red and/or Green Candies, crushed
  • Sprinkles
  • And other decorations that you like


Melt Almond Bark, dip Ritz cracker in melted chocolate, covering both sides, place on wax paper. Immediately top with crushed peppermint candy or sprinkles.

I forgot to get a picture of the Chocolate Almond Bark before I melted it, so I took a picture of the Vanilla that I had. You could use either, or even both would be very good.

Mint Thins.fixed.3

These are called Mint Thins because of the mint candy on top. But, because my boys don’t really like mint, I decided to try some with sprinkles.

  3. These look very interesting and easy! Maybe I could do these . . . Never thought about a chocolate cookie made from a cracker!

  4. Another easy one to do with Ritz crackers is to make little “sandwiches” with two crackers with peanut butter between them, them dip them in the chocolate bark. You can even do the little Ritz bits with peanut butter minis and dip them as well, but I think the bigger ones are better for some reason.

    These look so cute! I’ve made something similar, except with mine you make them into sandwich cookies with peanut butter in the middle. It’s so good! I’ve never thought of decorating them with sprinkles or anything though. I’ll have to try it some time in the future!
