Easy Mint Christmas Crack is a delicious mint chocolate cookie. This take on the traditional saltine cracker toffee, also called Christmas Crack is a hit every year. Tastes like a better version of a Thin mint, the popular Girl Scout Cookie.
I love making treats during the holidays. I love to gift them to neighbors, teachers and friends! They are also fun to add to a holiday dessert board for a holiday party! I also tend to navigate towards cookie recipes that are fool proof and EASY.
If you know me by now, you know I don’t bake. However, I am an excellent chocolate melter so when I found this recipe circling around Pinterest I knew it was going to be a favorite.
EASY MINT CHRISTMAS CRACK
This Christmas crack recipe might be my favorite dessert I have ever made. It’s addicting…like really addicting. Hence, the name Christmas Crack. Just wait till you take the first bite…. you won’t be able to resist another!!
What I love about this recipe is that you can change it up! The traditional recipe is made with graham crackers but you can use Ritz crackers, regular graham crackers and in this recipe I used chocolate graham crackers. You can also use dark chocolate, white chocolate, or mint chocolate! If you love chocolate and mint this recipe is for you!
