Mint Chocolate Crispy Treats

Crispy treats are such a quintessential dessert classic. They’re easy and fast to make, not to mention so yummy. Both my husband and I grew up on them as a childhood favorite, but that didn’t mean we couldn’t enjoy them as adults! When I made my homemade mint marshmallows this week I decided to use a lot of them to make these delectable mint chocolate crispy treats.

I made my own mint marshmallows ahead if time but if I didn't have the time or inclination there are excellent store bought mint marshmallows to buy! From there it was the same procedure as the classics to make these mint chocolate crispy treats! The butter and marshmallows formed the base.

From there it was the same procedure as the classics to make these mint chocolate crispy treats. The butter and marshmallows formed the base.
To keep the mint chocolate crispy treats from being too sweet, I made sure to add a little salt before stirring in chocolate rice cereal. I had to get the chocolate version of everyone's favorite rice cereal to go with the mint since mint chocolate is my favorite combination in the world! Then I pressed out the mixture into my well greased 9 x 13 pan. The final touch was to add a whole bunch of chopped chocolate mint candies on top while the mixture was still hot. That way they could meld right in and stay put.

Once the tray of mint chocolate crispy treats cooled completely, I just cut them into squares. Oh my goodness, the second I bit into one I was transported to my childhood. It had that fantastic gooey texture with loads of amazing chocolate mint flavor. They were such a fun take on the classic that Marc and I absolutely loved. They kept well in sealed containers too so we could savor them slowly over the week. Hope you all enjoy this childhood favorite as much as we did!
