Chocolate Mint Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

Chocolate Mint Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

This Chocolate Mint Rice Krispies Treats Recipe I made to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day gets a double dose of chocolate from both the cocoa in the cereal and the white chocolate used for dipping.  If you’re not a fan of mint, you can always leave that out for simple white chocolate dipped cocoa krispies treats.  Those are good too!

Chocolate Mint Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

1/4 cup butter
1 10 oz package of marshmallows
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
5 1/2 cups Cocoa Krispies
10 oz white chocolate/almond bark
1/4 cup sugar
green food coloring

  • Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and mint extract. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  • Add the cereal into the marshmallow mixture and stir until well coated.
  • Use a buttered spatula to evenly press mixture into the 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • While the krispy treats are cooling, mix 3-4 drops of food coloring into the sugar. Stir well until color is evenly distributed. Break up any clumps.
  • Once treats have cooled, turn out onto a cutting board and cut into rectangles – however big you would like them.
  • Melt chocolate according to package directions.
  • Dip one end of each treat into chocolate and immediately sprinkle with colored sugar.
  • Place on wax paper to cool.
