  • 3 (12oz bags of semi sweet chocolate chips )
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 6 tbsp of shortening


  1. Combine chocolate chips, peppermint extract and 6 tablespoons of shortening in a large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Heat on 50% power for 2 minutes, stir gently and then heat another minute. Stir again and if chocolate is still not melted and smooth keep zapping in the microwave at 30 second intervals.
  3. Dip Ritz crackers in chocolate mixture with a fork remove and let some of the chocolate drip off before placing on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate to firm up.
  4. *** You can also use Vanilla Wafers but you won't have the little ruffly edges as you do with the Ritz Crackers.
