{Recipe} Easy Homemade Thin Mints





I'm going to let you in on one of my little entertaining secrets. 
 Well, this might be the only one I have!
One of the easiest things to add to a dessert menu is a homemade mint. It takes one ingredient....a bag of mint chocolate wafers! Melt and mold and done! My local Hobby Lobby has had the white chocolate for a while now. Recently, I noticed a dark chocolate and gave it a try last month for a bridal shower. They were a hit! While checking out with them the cashier informed me that someone told her that you dip a Ritz cracker in the dark chocolate mint and get a thin mint. 
I had no choice but to try that!!
Verdict: total success!!
Now looking through Pinterest this can also be achieved with Andes chips found in the baking aisle. But now you know it can be achieved with these too!....




Easy Homemade Thin Mints

1 Package Dark Mint Flavored Candy Wafers
1 and 1/2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers

Directions:
Melt wafers according to package. Using a fork dip cracker in chocolate. Tap the fork on the side of the container to remove excess chocolate. Place on wax paper to dry.

Store in an air tight container.
Watch them disappear!!

  


Probably adding these to my Christmas goodies I make!!

Happy Thursday!!

Chic Couture-Uniquely You


I love florals! I'm pretty much a girly girl so no surprise there! I even have a floral phone case right now! Modcloth is probably one of the best places to get girly girl floral dresses like the Story of Citrus Dress in Noir.  I played around with it on Polyvore and brought out the green in the dress to take it into fall. I love the dainty leaf details on the sweater and on the handbag! Add some delicate pieces of jewelry, some sparkling nail polish (Julep of course!), and a pretty fragrance and you get a unique outfit that's right up my alley!


Uniquely You



I might be wishing I had the outfit to wear this Sunday!

Happy Friday lovelies!!
