Frugal Cookies

Here's a recipe that I made today. You may even have a version of this and made it before. I thought it was a great idea since there are few ingredients and you don't even have to heat up your stove and use electricity! Here are the 2 versions of this that I made today.
Thin Mints
Ritz Crackers
Chocolate Chips
Peppermint Flavoring
Mint Oreos or Candy Canes
Melt the chocolate chips with mint flavoring and maybe a little Crisco to make it thinner. Dip the Ritz crackers in the melted chocolate, cover both sides. Put on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Sprinkle with either crushed candy canes or mint oreos. (I did the oreos because that's what I had on hand) Cool or freeze until chocolate is hardened and enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cookies
Ritz Crackers
Peanut Butter
Chocolate Chips
Make little sandwiches with the peanut butter and ritz crackers. Dip in melted chocolate chips. Cover both sides with chocolate. Place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and let chocolate harden. I put pretty stripes on them with melted white chocolate chips.
Does anyone else have any ideas for cheap holiday cookies? Post them in the comments or email them to me!

I made the peanut butter ones today before taking off for my sister’s and they were a huge hit! Thank you so much for sharing!
