Minted-Chocolate Cookies


Transform store-bought wafers into chocolate-covered cookies without baking.

  • Yield: Makes 16

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2010


  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Chocolate wafers


  1. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave in 30-second increments until melted, about 2 minutes. Add peppermint extract and stir until mixture is smooth.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Working with 1 cookie at a time, place a chocolate wafer into melted chocolate and turn to coat. With a fork, lift cookie from bowl, letting excess chocolate drip off. Transfer to prepared sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, about 10 minutes (or up to 1 week).

    I make an equally quick and easy variation of these. required 1 box of Ritz crackers, Andes Mint chocolate chip pieces. Melt the chocolate chips, dip the crackers set on wax or parchment/rack to dry and voila.......DELICIOUS!!!!! People have told me they are similar to thin mints.
