Thin-Mints or Thin-Oranges

Sorry I can't be more specific for this recipe but it is one that you really have to make to suit your own taste buds. I think I found the mint recipe in a simple and delicious magazine a few years back, they are faux thin-mints! I loved these and decided to try it with orange extract cuz my orange man doesn't like mint...AMAZING!!!

vanilla wafers
2/3 cup Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips
Orange or Mint Extract to taste

Melt chocolate chips in microwave, add flavoring. Dip wafers in flavored chocolate. Put on wax paper in the fridge of freezer. Enjoy the Antioxidants!

Dinner Rolls

This recipe turned out awesome!!! I still can't believe I made these from scratch. I don't have a bread machine or a kitchenaid so I did it all by hand, so I think I burned all the calories that I ate when I was kneading the dough!
Tip: Don't dissolve the yeast in water that is too hot. To get it to rise faster, put dough in oven on preheat just until warm with a pan of boiling water, then turn the oven off ; you want it to get to about 80*
