My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Minted Rice Crispy Treats

Minted Rice Crispy Treats

We are slowly coming upon everything peppermint season and I couldn't be more excited!  I try to incorporate the flavor when I can and it's typically together with chocolate.  You can't go wrong with that!  I had made some classic rice crispy treats and a thought popped into my head of how much better they would be with some minty chocolate covering them!  These Minted Rice Crispy Treats are a new family fav and I love that they are bite size!

Did you know that Ande's Mint Chips make for the perfect dipping chocolate!  It melts really smooth and hardens nice and glossy!  Just think of the possibilities!

Since mint can be a pretty strong flavor, I cut my squares into a bite size.  They turned out not only delicious, but kind of adorable too!  Who doesn't like mini desserts?
I'm thinking these would make a great treat for neighbors and teachers this holiday!
