Thin Mint Krispie Treats


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.

Thin Mint Krispie Treats
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 7 cups Cocoa Pebbles
  • 24 Thin Mints (or Keebler Grasshoper cookies) coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Chips, divided
  1. Line 9x9 pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray
  2. IN a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir periodically until melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in Cocoa Pebbles and chopped cookies until incorporated.
  4. Let sit for 2 minutes. Then add in 1 cup Andes baking chips. Stir until they are distributed.
  5. Press mixture into prepared pan and then sprinkle remaining cup of Andes baking chips on top and press into kripies.
  6. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

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! 😉

YUM-O!!! These look incredible!!!

March 11, 2012 9:12 pm

Alright so I need to find a mall in Manhattan…ON IT.

March 11, 2012 9:20 pm

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.

March 11, 2012 9:23 pm

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…

March 11, 2012 9:34 pm

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:

I hope to see you soon :)

March 11, 2012 9:35 pm

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

March 11, 2012 10:40 pm

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

March 11, 2012 11:08 pm

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! :)

March 11, 2012 11:13 pm

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!

March 11, 2012 11:46 pm

These look amazing! And I love those Andes baking chips, too.

March 12, 2012 12:17 am

Two of my fave things: RKTreats AND Thin Mints…in one! LOVE IT

March 12, 2012 5:26 am

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!

March 12, 2012 7:45 am

oh yeah those look good, almost worth going to the mall to get the cookies on a weekend. Almost;p

March 12, 2012 8:56 am

Goodness gracious, those look heavenly!

March 12, 2012 9:00 am

Oh. My. Goodness.

These look delicious and right up my mother-in-law’s alley! I might make her some – after I make myself a batch of course!!! 😉

March 12, 2012 9:54 am

Great minds think a like! I made mint chocolate chip rice krispie treats this weekend!

March 12, 2012 10:19 am

Love chocolate and mint together! Gotta make these!

March 12, 2012 11:02 am

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!

March 21, 2012 3:53 pm

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?

March 12, 2012 11:19 am

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

March 12, 2012 3:20 pm

i want these in my face NOW!


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

March 12, 2012 5:29 pm

I love all your rice crispy recipes! This is perfect for St Patricks Day!

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…

March 13, 2012 1:17 am

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

March 13, 2012 12:07 pm

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

i love your site!

March 13, 2012 1:14 pm

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!!!

March 13, 2012 1:47 pm

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!

March 13, 2012 9:27 pm

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!

March 14, 2012 9:11 am

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

March 14, 2012 1:46 pm

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?

March 16, 2012 9:08 am

[…] don’t really enjoy Rice Krispie Treats, but this recipe from Cookies & Cups may just change my […]

March 17, 2012 9:59 pm

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!

March 18, 2012 12:05 pm

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

March 18, 2012 2:17 pm

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.

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!!!

March 31, 2012 10:03 pm

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?

April 2, 2012 1:55 pm

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?

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?

December 11, 2012 8:37 pm

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!

December 26, 2012 5:35 pm

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!

January 16, 2013 2:13 am

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 :)

February 13, 2013 8:48 pm

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

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!
