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


  • 1/4 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 9×9 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! 😉

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!!! 😉

  7. 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! 🙂


  8. 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!

    1. 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?

    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…

  10. 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?

    1. shelly

      hahaha!! Well, Keebler makes a version of thin mints called Grasshopper cookies and they are basically the same, just as good and cheaper!

    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!

  12. 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.

  13. Betsy

    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!!!

    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?

    1. shelly

      If you can find Cocoa Krispies that would work, OR you could use regular krispies with marshmallows and squirt in some hershey’s chocolate syrup when you add the marshmallows…just a little bit and that would work!

  15. Emily

    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?

  16. Becca

    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!

    1. Rachael

      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!

    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 🙂

  18. Natalie

    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!
