Mint Chocolate Covered Ritz Crackers

I know this sounds weird, but I love this little Christmasy treat! The mint and chocolate and crispy crackers all go together so well. Almost like Thin Mint cookies. Thanks to my friend Sadie who came up with this recipe!

Mint Chocolate Covered Ritz Crackers

14 oz bag dark candy coating chocolate (I used Wiltons Candy Melts Dark)
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
Ritz crackers
sprinkles (I used peppermint flavored sprinkles)

In a microwave safe bowl microwave candy coating chocolate and peppermint extract in 30 second intervals, stirring between times, until melted. Dip crackers in chocolate, using a fork or a candy coating tool, turning to cover. Tap off excess chocolate and place on waxed paper to let chocolate set. Sprinkle with sprinkles while chocolate is still wet.
