I originally found this recipe on Creations by Kara who makes so many delectable things, plus I just love her! I could not find a bag of Andes mints so I changed the recipe just slightly.
- 1 rectangle package Andes mints
- 12oz chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
- 2 cups Rice Crispies cereal
- 1/2 package of Oreos, crushed
Melt mints and chocolate chips in a large glass bowl in the microwave at 50% power, stirring often. Add the Rice Crispies and Oreos and stir till combined. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let sit until hardened.
I put mine in the fridge to speed up setting and keep them from melting to nothing during their stint in the car during GNO dinner. I liked them room temp and straight from the fridge. Well, as you can see I didn't even wait for them to set up before testing the mint chocolate crunch goodness. How could I resist?
