Thin Mint Muddy Buddies–St. Patty’s Day Edition

If you looooove Thin Mint cookies, you will love this twisted treat! *BEWARE--these are addicting!


  • Chocolate Thin Mint Flavor:
  • 4 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 12 Thin Mint cookies finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Green Pieces:
  • 4 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or melts
  • Green food dye to get them green optional (use gel only)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Extra Thin Mints; roughly chopped


  • For the Chocolate Thin Mint Cereal pieces: Place cereal in a large gallon size bag and set aside. In a small microwave proof bowl, melt chocolate and stir until smooth.
  • Pour the melted chocolate over cereal in bag and gently stir with a spatula until coated, you can also shake the bag but I usually like to wait until my powdered sugar is added.
  • Add finely crushed cookies and powdered sugar and shake.
  • Pour covered cereal onto a cookie sheet and let cool.
  • For the Green Cereal Pieces: Repeat steps 1-6. This time using white chocolate and add green coloring, about 5 drops of gel but use to your desire.
  • Once both flavors are done, mix the two together and add sprinkle more Thin Mints on top for decoration!
