Double Chocolate Mint Krispie Treats

Double Chocolate Mint Crispy Treats 9

First of all, a huge thank you for all of your inspiring comments on Sunday’s post!  I was actually a little nervous to hit publish but I’m so glad I did.  I love this community:-)

Now, let’s get back to the desserts!  For the shower, I made some of my old favorites and a couple of new recipes.  Additionally, I made cookie brownie layer bars, a strawberry birthday cake (recipe to come!) and these Double Chocolate Minty Treats.

Coming up with the menu for an event like this is so much fun.  Just like with my Thanksgiving dinner party, I wanted to have a variety of delicious and fun pick-up desserts.  After accounting for chocolate, caramel, peanut butter and sweet and salty, I knew I needed to fill the hole for Sara’s love of chocolate with mint.  Madison’s rice krispie treat pops immediately caught my eye, but I knew I didn’t have time to make individual pops for a big crowd.  Instead, I made the rice krispie treats in their regular form and dipped them in chocolate to keep them special, fun and delicious.  It turns out these were the favorite for quite a few people so I think the recipe was definitely a success!

    Yay! I”m so happy these turned out well for you, and I love the way you adapted them. Such a fun little chocolate-dipped treat. Isn’t amazing how sometimes the simplest desserts can such a hit?

      I know, sometimes makes me wonder why I make complicated desserts too:-) I wish I had the patience for your pops, though!

  8. Jessica @ Stylish Stealthy and Healthy May 18, 2011 at 9:05 am #

    I should make these and then promptly bring them to work as to not eat the entire pan. Plus then everyone will love me for sure.

    • KeepItSweet May 18, 2011 at 11:50 am #

      lol they will definitely love you and i have the same issue… the leftover desserts in my freezer have been calling my name!

    These look SO GOOD! Do you think you could have dipped the rice crispy treat bars in melted Andes chocolates to make it extra minty?

    • KeepItSweet May 18, 2011 at 11:50 am #

      It definitely would be good if you like extra minty!

  10. Florida Foodie May 18, 2011 at 9:43 am #

    P.S. I don’t know how you have the patience for dipping each bar individually!

    • KeepItSweet May 19, 2011 at 9:58 am #

      You could probably melt chocolate and pour it over the top of the whole batch and then cut them up:-)

  11. Ashley @ the fit academic May 18, 2011 at 11:32 am #

    mmmm – these look amazing! I am really a kid at heart, as rice crispy treats are one of my all-time FAVE snacks/desserts already. Add chocolate + mint = genius! : )

    I stopped over here because of a comment you left on food bride sometime last year. I went into a sugar happiness heaven just looking at your banner. This post got me thinking about what I can add to rice crispies…oddly enough, zucchini came to mind. :)

  22. Lucy @ Lucy eats May 19, 2011 at 7:04 am #

    I love how they are bite sized. Looks so fun to make and great for parties

    This looks really awesome, I have been thinking of ways to incorporate puffed rice into recipes – thanks for the idea.
