...also...what a GREAT treat for St. Patrick's Day...
Mint and Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
3 T butter
1 package (10.5 oz) mini marshmallows
dash of salt
1/2 t. mint extract
10-12 drops green food coloring
1 cup Andes Crème De Menthe Baking Chips (I couldn't find any at my local grocery store, so I used the Andes mints and chopped them in thirds)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
Directions: Melt butter in a large sauce pan on med-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add a dash of salt, mint extract and food coloring and stir well. Stir in cereal until well mixed. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of a 9x9 inch pan lined with wax paper. Layer the mint baking chips and chocolate chips onto the cereal mixture and press into the bottom layer. Add the rest of the cereal mixture and press down into the pan firmly. Let set for 15-20 minutes. Remove from pan, cut and serve.
