HERSHEY'S Easy Chocolate Cracker Snacks Recipe


  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 66 round buttery crackers (about one-half 1-lb. box)
  • 1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Mint Chocolate Chips


  • 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. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens (about 20 minutes). For best results, store tightly covered in refrigerator. About 5-1/2 dozen cookies

Ratings & Reviews

    I have been making these for years for my Christmas Cookie Trays I give out. They are so easy, quick
    These are great and just as easy as the recipe suggests. My variation was to use mint chips and special dark chips (instead of semi-sweet). It tastes really good but works best as an after-dinner-mint type of thing. Also, any remaining melted chocolate works well as a "bark" kind of thing.
    Super easy! I used Reese's PB chips and milk chocolate and another batch with special dark chocolate and mint extract. Took them on a camping trip - great snack!
    these are quite good, a nice mixture of salty and sweet. i did have some difficulty with coating the crackers with chocolate, but the taste was wonderful
