Tuesday's Tasty Treat (Homemade Thin Mints)

Today's Tasty Treat I'm leaving with you is a homemade version of a girl scout thin mint cookie, yum!!
It's one of my favorite Christmas Treats to fix.

What You'll Need:
1 pkg of almond bark chocolate flavor or chocolate chips, melted
(I personally like the almond bark because it's supper easy to melt)
1 bottle of peppermint oil
2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers
Wax paper, spoon, & fork

Melt chocolate, then adding 1 to 2 drops of peppermint oil.  I do it to my personal taste.
Usually 2 drops is enough for a batch.  Mix well. 
Then I roll the ritz cracker slowly not to break them in the chocolate.
Lifting the cracker out of the chocolate with the fork so that the chocolate can drip off a little.
Placing the cracker on the wax paper to cool and set up.

Makes approximately 2 sleeves of crackers.
Believe it or not these are REALLY good, and reallly simple to make.

Just an update, I went to the doctor yesterday.  She says I will live, lol.  I have a horrible sinus infection trying to move into my lungs, so I'm suppose to take it easy rest, rest, rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take my meds she says.  My post will probably be short and sweet this week.
Hope you all are having fun getting prepared for Christmas.  In the midst of it all, please don't forget the
Reason For the Season, Jesus.
