Easy Tips For Preparing Thin Mints At Home
Keep ingredients ready:
- The main ingredients necessary for these mints are low-sodium crackers, dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips and peppermint extract. Make sure these ingredients are readily available so that you don't have to run to the store to grab something while you're in the middle of making these!
Melting the Chocolate:
- You need to melt the chocolate carefully so that it gets a smooth, even texture. This is why we recommend using a double-boiler on your stove top rather than melting the chocolate in a microwave. This ensures an even temperature for melting the chocolate so that you get a smooth, shiny consistency rather than a lumpy, maybe even burnt, mixture.
Dipping the Crackers:
This might seem like the most difficult part of making these cookies, but by using a fork you can make the process a lot easier. Use a fork to dip the cookie into the melted chocolate and pull it out once its evenly coated. This will ensure that every angle of the cookie is coated in delicious chocolate!
Using wax paper:
- You need to use wax paper in order to cool the cookies without having them stick. This will make your life a lot easier once the cookies have cooled and you want to remove them from the wax paper.
