1

Line several trays or cookie sheets with wax paper.

2

Place milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet 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. Stir in peppermint extract.

Tip

Peppermint extract can be optional.

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

Variations:

Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate: Use 1-2/3 cups (10-oz pkg.) REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips, 2 cups (11.5-oz pkg.) HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips and 2 tablespoons shortening. Proceed as above.
 
White Chip and Toffee: Melt 2 bags (12-oz. each) HERSHEY'S Premier White Creme Chips and 2 tablespoons shortening. Dip crackers; before coating hardens sprinkle with HEATH BITS O' BRICKLE Toffee Bits.
