- 2 cups CHIPITS Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (500 mL)
- 2 tbsp shortening (30 mL)
- 60 to 70 round buttery crackers (250 g)

- 1. Line several trays or cookie sheets with wax paper.
2. Place mint chocolate chips, chocolate chips and shortening in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. Continue heating 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
3. Drop crackers into chocolate mixture, one at a time. Using tongs, push cracker into chocolate so that it is covered completely. (If chocolate begins to thicken, reheat 10 to 20 seconds in microwave.) Remove from chocolate, tapping lightly on edge of bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place on prepared tray.
