1/4 teaspoon mint extract
2 to 3 drops green food color
1 (9-ounce) package chocolate wafer cookies

Line cookie sheets with waxed paper; set aside. Place candy coating in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (3 to 4 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in mint extract and food color.

Tipping saucepan slightly, dip chocolate wafers halfway into melted coating. Lightly shake off excess coating. Place coated wafers onto prepared cookie sheets.

Using spoon, drizzle melted chocolate over dipped cookies. Allow coating to set at room temperature or in refrigerator. Store cookies in tightly covered container at room temperature.
