I actually first made these Green Mint Oreo Rice Krispie Treats at Christmas time when I did our annual Grinch Party but I thought they could totally work for St. Patrick’s Day too! They are made with the Guittard Green Mint Chips and follow the same recipe that I used for the White Chocolate Oreo Rice Krispie Treats (with the exception of using green mint chips instead of white chocolate). I wasn’t sure of the flavor combinations when I was making them but they totally work! Everyone raved about them and were surprised how much they liked them! These come together really quickly for a dessert and you can make a lot of them! This recipe makes a thicker Rice Krispie treat as it is made in a 9×13 pan.
Green Mint Oreo Rice Krispies Treats
1/4 Cup Melted Butter
1 (10.5 oz) bag plus 1/4 of another (10.5 oz) bag Mini Marshmallows
6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
26 Oreo Cookies Crushed up in rough chunks (Divided into 16 for filling and 10 for topping)
1 Bag Guittard Green Mint Chips
Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Crush 16 Oreos and set aside. Melt butter in a large non-stick pan and add marshmallows. Mix until marshmallows are melted and combined with the butter. Remove from heat and stir in the Rice Krispies cereal. Add the 16 crushed Oreos and mix. Pour and press the mixture into the prepared 9×13 pan. Melt the green mint chips in the microwave for 30 second intervals. Pour the green mint on top of the Rice Krispie mixture, reserving some to drizzle on the top afterwards. Smooth the green mint with a knife. Crush the remaining 10 Oreos and sprinkle on top of the green mint. Drizzle the last of the green mint on top of the Oreo layer. Allow the green mint to cool and harden before cutting the Rice Krispies Treats.
