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

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