No Bake Desserts: Skinny Mint Cookies


2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips
20 unwrapped Andes candies (chocolate mints)
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 (9-ounce) package plain chocolate wafer cookies (Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers)

In medium microwave-safe bowl, combine semisweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. Microwave on high power for 1 minute; remove and stir. Return to microwave and cook on 50% power for 1 minute longer; remove and stir. Continue microwaving at 50% power and stirring until chips are melted and mixture is smooth.

Remove from microwave and stir in the chocolate mint candies until smooth. Add peppermint extract and stir until combined. Dip the cookies, one at a time, into the chocolate mixture. Gently shake off excess chocolate and place on waxed paper to cool and set. Store in cool place.
