Easiest Christmas cookies ever

This is what we set out to create.   
It is one of our favorite easy Christmas recipes.  No baking, no rolling, no cookie cutters.
So easy even kids could make them (although it is admittedly much messier when they do)
  1. Crush candy canes using a heavy blunt object.  Kids will fight over who gets to do the smashing.
 2. Melt baking chocolate in the microwave then add 1/4 tsp mint extract.
 3. Dip Ritz crackers into the chocolate.
 4. Lay them on wax  or parchment paper.  Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
5. set aside to cool and harden.
6. clean off your fingers, the spoons and the bowl by thoroughly licking them.

 I didn't manage to take a picture of them nicely displayed on a platter but here they are freshly made.   Not quite as pretty as the picture in the recipe book, but they taste great and took only a few minutes to make.
