Thin Mint Muddy Buddies

These thin mint muddy buddies are a twist on the original. The mint effect is doubled up with the addition of Andes mints and Girl Scout thin mint cookies.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups finely crushed thin mint cookies
  • 2 tablespoons chopped creme de menthe candy, such as Andes® mints
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • 6 cups crispy cereal squares, such as Chex™ cereal
  • 3/4 cups confectioners sugar

Directions

Step 1:

Place thin mint cookies in the jar of a blender or food processor, and blend cookies to yield 3/4 cup. Crush Andes mints; set aside.

Step 2:

Add semisweet chocolate chips, butter, and mint extract to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, and stir. Continue to microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring well each time. Continue the process until mixture is smooth.

Step 3:

Add cereal to a large bowl. Pour melted mint chocolate over cereal and stir to coat thoroughly. Add coated cereal to a large resealable bag. Pour in confectioner’s sugar and crushed thin mint cookies. Shake it all together until cereal is evenly coated in the mixture.

Step 4:

Pour cereal mixture out onto a baking pan; sprinkle chopped Andes mints over the top. Once mixture is cooled and set, transfer to an airtight container.
