This week on Cook With Brooke, I’m puttin’ on the ritz, and sharing my Chocolate Mint Ritz recipe. A perfect holiday sweet treat and gift!
Last year around this time, I did a Facebook Live, and filmed this recipe how-to. I received so many messages asking me to add this easy recipe to my Cook With Brooke series, and also to my YouTube channel, so of course I’m happy to share!
I got the idea from a friend on Instagram who was making them, who in turn got the recipe from someone else. Think of it as a passed down recipe. So, a big thank you to whomever came up with this easy two ingredient treat!
All it takes is some Andes Creme De Menthe Thins and some Ritz Crackers. Melt the mint chocolate in a double boiler, dunk the crackers in, one by one, and let them dry on a sheet of wax paper. It’s truly that easy. Once you try one of these, you won’t be able to stop.
If you’d like another option to dip the Ritz in, melt a bag of white chocolate chips. Melt the same way as I’ve directed, dipping the crackers in one by one. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over top for the win.
A couple Editor’s notes: In the video I dried the chocolate mint covered crackers on a baking rack. Although this works just fine, I would recommend using wax paper as they remove easier.

Chocolate Mint Ritz Sweet Treat
- medium glass bowl
- medium sized sauce pan
- baking sheet
- waxed paper
- two forks
- 2 packages Andes Creme De Menthe Thins 56 individual mints total
- 1 sleeve Ritz crackers approx. 24 crackers
- Fill the sauce pan with 2 inches of water.
- Place glass bowl over the water, making sure that the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. If it does, just pour a little water out.
- Unwrap each mint and place in the glass bowl. Turn heat on medium high, until water comes to a soft boil and the chocolate begins to melt.
- In the meantime, line a baking sheet with waxed paper and set aside.
- Stir the chocolate periodically, until chocolate is completely melted, then turn heat down to a simmer.
- One by one, place a cracker in the chocolate, turning to coat with both forks. Use both forks to take the cracker out of the chocolate and place on waxed paper.
- Repeat with remaining crackers until there isn't enough chocolate to coat a cracker.
- Let the Chocolate Mint Ritz cool until chocolate is hardened. Store in airtight container for up to a week.
