This "cookie" recipe arrived in the in-box on July 21 and I decided
it has to be an acquired taste and therefore suitable for silly season 2009.

  Ritz Mints

  Makes about 68 crackers

    * 2 sleeves Ritz crackers
    * 1 (14-ounce) package dark-cocoa-mint-flavored melting wafers


   1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
   2. In a heatproof bowl, set over (but not touching) simmering water,
      melt chocolate wafers. Stir with a slotted spoon. Dip each cracker
      into melted wafers, using tweezers or your fingers, until fully
      coated. Transfer to prepared baking sheets.
   3. Let stand until coating has set and is no longer glossy, 20 to 30
      minutes. Store in an airtight container up to one week.

      Tip: Dark Cocoa Mint-flavored Melting Wafers can be purchased at
      <http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?sku=1911-1920> or
      your local baking/craft specialty store.

Don't let it be said that I was a spoon tease on this one...
