Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats

Last week, I played bunko for the first time, and at bunko were rice krispie treats. To be honest, I cannot remember the last time I indulged in the marshmellowie goodness of rice krispie treats. That’s when it instantly hit me. I wanted to make a St. Patty’s dessert for the blog (and my family and friends), and thus the mint chocolate chip rice krispie treat was born.

I love the mint chocolate chip combo; however, my husband isn’t a big fan. So I knew that my brillant idea would not strike a cord in his book. Oh well, I remind myself time and time again that we can’t please everyone, and this treat I automatically knew would not please him. He did try a bite which I was shocked and he said that they tasted like the candies from Olive Garden. In my book I knew this treat was a success because that’s how I wanted them to taste like… like, mint chocolate chip!

    Any reason not to use regular chocolate chips? I have a big bag of them already…

      You can use regular chocolate chips. I just had the mini version on hand–so that’s what I used. Good luck and happy cooking!
