Chocolate Mint Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate mint rice krispie treats

These turned out spectacular. I had found a bag of Jet puffed chocolate mint marshmallows and thought they would add just the right touch of flavor. To my disappointment there was not a lot of flavor to them at all, just a hint of what I was looking for. So I went back and looked to see if there was anything to give these rice krispie treats a little more chocolate kick.

While I was looking at regular milk chocolate chips, I came across a bag of Andes baking chocolate and knew immediately it was a match meant to be. Mint and chocolate marshmallows and chocolate chip with mint.

 


I am a beginner at making anything in the kitchen, so I had to learn how to melt the chocolate which didn’t turn out to be hard at all. There were a couple of options I ran across. Either putting them in the microwave or placing a glass bowl over a pot of hot water. I chose to get the experience of trying it over the oven.
Here is how you make them.

What you need:

  • 1 bag Andes chocolate
  • 1 bag chocolate mint marshmallows 8-10 oz
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 5 cups rice krispies
  1. Spray your pan you plan on putting these in with no stick.
  2. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a pan.
  3. When all is melted add the rice krispies.
  4. Stir together and hold the handle tight, because these things stick together.
  5. Scoop into your pan and place wax paper over to spread evenly.

For the chocolate

  1. Place a small pan of water on the stove and put a glass bowl on top of it.
  2. Pour about 4 oz. of chocolate in and stir, (be sure to have your potholder handy).
  3. When its all melted pour over the rice krispie treats.
  4. Put in the fridge and let cool
  5. cut into squares or however you want to
  6. Eat em up..
