Place the chocolate into a heat-glass bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until creamy and smooth. Alternatively, place the glass bowl over a pot of simmering water over medium-low heat and melt until smooth, stirring frequently.
Once chocolate is melted, stir in peppermint extract.
Place a cracker onto a fork and dip into the metled chocolate, allow the excess chocolate to drip off throng the prongs of the fork.
Place cookie on wax or parchement paper to dry.
