Thin Mint Krispie Treats

funsweets

This weekend was pretty busy.

Most weekends are, nowadays.

The time in my life where I lazed about on Saturdays and Sundays is a thing of the past.

 

Now, it’s sports games, food shopping, cleaning, laundry, Home Depot…

Today I went to the mall.  On a Sunday.  I urge you to never go to the mall on a Sunday.

Utter chaos, I tell you.

I like the week-day mall scene, where its moms and grandparents and babies in strollers.

Not the weekend mall, where it’s lots of high school kids standing around in groups blocking my way to the Cinnabon counter.

Don’t you kids have chores to do?
I am apparently 80 years old.

BUT at the mall today there were girls selling Girl Scout cookies.  It’s all about the silver lining.

 

So yeah…that leads me to now.  Thin Mint Krispie Treats.  You need them in your life.

Thanks, Sunday Mall.

First chop up some cookies.

Then make some krispie treats with Cocoa Pebbles.  Add in your cookies and stir it up with love.

Last, add in one cup of Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Bits.  It’s your secret ingredient.

Press them all in the pan, press on some more Andes Mints on top and cut into squares.

Minty goodness.

A Thin Mint isn’t just a Thin Mint anymore.

Soooo…..I just found your blog via Kevin and Amanda, and what can I say? You had me at Thin Mint Krisy Treats! I just finished off a box of Thin Mints last week, but it looks as if I shall have to hunt down a girl scout just to make these yummy looking treats! I look forward to reading your entire blog and finding plenty of ways to add some more junk to my trunk! 😉

Weekday mall is like a whole different time warp. It’s happy and calm and I can walk right up and get a pretzel and find somewhere to sit like, no biggie. Weekend mall is from the devil.

So are these krispie treats. But in a good way.

I made “thin mint” krispy treats a few weeks ago but without actual thin mints, I love that yours have a double dose of chocolate and mint ingredients combined with cocoa pebbles. I might have to make these JUST so I have an excuse to buy some cocoa pebbles…

I love thin mints and to have them as marshmallow treats is genius! I’d love for you to share this yummy recipe at Mix it up Monday:

These are the silver lining on Sunday Mall? Shoot. And I stayed inside and ate cereal for dinner.

Thin mints, marshmallows, and Andes. What more could you ask for?!

I love rice krispie treats..and you are coming up with some doozies! These are my Mom’s fave cookies..maybe I need to make her a batch! 🙂

Have you thought about making a cereal treat cookbook? Because your ideas are ALL genius. And I need them all in one place so I can sit on my couch and look at them instead of doing productive things. Please say you’ll think about it!

These little treats are just what I would love to have right now! Chocolate and mint is a fantastic combination! You have a beautiful collection of recipes in your blog!

Sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

Oh. My. Goodness.

Mint, Chocolate and Krispie treats!? Yum! All my fave things in one treat. My kids would love these. And talking about kids: yes, my kids do chores… sometimes, lol. I think it’s important but quite unheard of now. I must be 80 too!

Also, just wanted to let you know that I’ve hit you up with a link to your blog back on my blog. Your blog and work is fantastic so definitely link worthy! 🙂

I’m in a rice-krispie-treat death match with a cousin, and I am determined to WIN. This might be just the recipe I need to give me the winning edge! Thin Mint Krispies are like a kick in the face to her boring old orange-with-mini-chocolate-chips krispie treats! Thanks!

Follow up: I made a slightly modified version of this today, and let me tell you, they are divine! I’m so glad you gave me the idea!! I’m getting ready to blog about this now. Is it too presumptuous to just go ahead and declare myself the Krispie-Treat-Death-Match winner now?

oh my…these look so good! Thanks so much for sharing!

Christina @ Ovenadventures

Oh Thin Mints how I love thee! These are insane with the baking bits on top too!!

We went to the mall yesterday too and omg where do all those people come from!!?? I wish there had been girl scouts there. Then again, i still have 10 boxes in my living room…

Deborah
Guest

I actually walked past the girls selling Girl Scout cookies at the grocery store today, but now I’m regretting it!!

robin marie
Guest

made these but with regular rice krispies… so so so good!!!

i love your site!

Tracy
Guest

Yum! Though I tend to go for Samoas over Thin Mints, I definitely want to stock up so I can make some of these fabulous krispie treats!!!

Kaytee @ Little Red
Guest

I just bought a pack of girl scout cookies the other day – YUM! I remembered how much I love Samoas and Thin Mints. Will have to try this Krispie Treat recipe!

Great idea!
I made a bunch of recipes last year with my thin mints and I can’t wait to dive in again this year!

Awesome! I just did a rice krispie treat with added nuts and berries (a healthier version).

sarah

Let’s suppose a tight-wad like me wanted to make these w/out “wasting” a perfectly good box of thinmints, because for crying out loud, those things are like $5 a box! What could I use as a substitute?

Nichole
Guest

I can’t find a girl scout to sell my thin mints and it’s making my life miserable! A co-worker came in with half a sleeve of thin mints and I trade homemade chocolate chip cookies for them. Now I need them even more!

Darla | Bakingdom

Oh lord. I’m in trouble now. Thin mints AND Rice Krispy treats? Together? Like besties? Resistance is futile.

James
Guest

I’m addicted to thin mints and these might be my downfall. Definitely going to have to try these out with a little bit of mint & chip ice cream on the side.

Betsy
Guest

I just found a left over box of thin mints in my pantry (how’s THAT happen) and I am going to buy rice krispies now…
Can’t wait!!!

Somer
Guest

I wasn’t able to find the Andes baking chips at our grocery store. If I just chop up Andes candies will it work the same?

Lori
Guest

Where I live they stopped selling cocoa pebbles unfortunatly. that was my favourite cereal as a child, I was wondering if there was any alternatives that I could try that would have around the same result?

Emily
Guest

These look great! I’m going to make these for Christmas. I’m just curious why this recipe calls for Cocoa Pebbles instead of Cocoa Krispies?

Becca
Guest

Love these! Mint chocolate is my favorite combination, especially this time of year. I just made a batch to bring to work, and I actually used a 9×13, after freaking out that 9×9 wouldn’t be enough to bring in. Worked out perfectly!

Rachael
Guest

I did the same! While looking at the size of everything, it looked like WAY too much for 9×9. Even at 9×13 the height of these was tall! The mints didn’t stick onto the top when I pressed them, which was disappointing. But other than that these were minty and delicious!

Maggie
Guest

Just made these tonight, delicious!! I used a thin mint cookie that is the Walmart ‘Great Value’ brand…tastes just like the girl scout cookies to me and is available year round (at less than half the price!) I did the 8 by 8 pan ‘cuz you can’t beat a nice thick rice crispy treat 🙂

Alexa
Guest

These are the most amazing treats I have ever made! Thank you so much for this recipe!!!

Natalie
Guest

I just made these! I couldn’t find Andes baking bits, so I just bought a pack of the Andes chocolates and chopped them up. It worked great! I’m thinking it might even be good with regular rice krispie treats to cut down on the richness a little bit, but these are fabulous!

Cocoa pebbles as much I liked the name given, I had a really good read. Nicely jotted recipe! I’m coming UP with THIN MINT KRISPIE this weekend for my children.
