1 package Bakers semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 t peppermint extract
1 sleeve Ritz crackers (35)
1 peppermint candy cane (6 inches) crushedDirections:
Microwave chocolate in small microwaveable bowl as directed on
package. Stir until completely melted. Blend in extract. Dip crackers
in melted chocolate, completely coating crackers with chocolate.
Carefully scrape off excess chocolate. Place on wax paper-covered
baking sheets; sprinkle with crushed candy.
Refrigerate 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Makes 35 or about
12 servings, 3 coated crackers each.
Variation: For a chocolate peanut butter twist, omit peppermint
extract and candy cane. Spread each cracker with a thin layer of
peanut butter before dipping into the melted chocolate.
