Thin Mint Imposters

Waaaay Easy.  I have absolutely no measurements, but DO NOT be scared, really these are pretty fool proof.  I think these taste A LOT like the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies.

1 Box Chocolate or Vanilla Wafer Cookies. 
 *Chocolate ones are harder to find, Vanilla really does work ok.
Chocolate Almond Bark or semi-sweet chocolate chips melted. 
(I usually start with 1/2 pkg of almond bark for one batch. ) 
Peppermint Oil

Directions:  Melt almond bark/cc as directed.  Add very, very little peppermint oil and mix well.  Taste!  Taste testing is very important.  Some like it really minty some don't.  This oil is STRONG stuff DO NOT DUMP.  I use a toothpick, Old infant Tylenol dropper or something of the sort.  Some come w/a dropper already.  If you want more minty flavor  add more, but again little at a time.  After determining the right amount of mint.  Dip vanilla wafers.  Tap off excess chocolate and place on wax paper.  When chocolate is hard and set.  EAT & ENJOY  (These are great for Cookie exchanges and FREEZE GREAT.)  I would recommend not sharing these cookies in a container w/other cookiesin the freezer as they do give off a small amount of minty "breath"
