Chocolate Mint Krispie Treats

Everyone loves krispie treats. I mean everyone! Some of you may be like me, somewhat of a closet marshmallow treat lover. You sneak a square when no one is looking. But then some of you may be more like my family. You grab a corner of the marshmallow treats (still in the pan) lift up and tear off a big chunk! No plate or napkin required. Chocolate Mint Krispie Treats are sensational.

Chocolate Mint

I found Jet-Puffed Chocolate Mint Marshmallows at Target while on a recent trip visiting my daughter in Athens GA. What a tasty find. Not only were the marshmallows light green and brown swirled, they had a delicious aroma. Yes, I smelled the bag!! Chocolate mint treats are made in the same fashion as all marshmallow treats are. Simply mix together chocolate mint marshmallows, chopped chocolate-mint candies and cocoa pebbles cereal and you have a fantastic treat.

Did I Mention…

I think I forgot to mention that chocolate mint krispie treats are topped with a can of vanilla frosting that has 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract added. Frosting the marshmallow treats with a canned frosting is super but the addition of that small amount of peppermint extract takes them into the WOW zone! What’s a WOW zone? Adding something extra special to a recipe that takes it from so-so to WOW!
