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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    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!!!

  2. 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 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!

  4. 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?

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

    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…

  6. 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?

  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. 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!!! 😉

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

    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! 😉
