Grasshopper Muddy Buddies

After quite a few busy weekends in a row, it was really nice to have a weekend with no plans.  Especially because the next season of sports is going to be start in a couple weeks, and that means our weekends will be full of football followed by baseball.  So relaxing, a trip to Costco, and just being outside was a nice way to spend a weekend.  But that means, we are back to Monday.  The only way I can see to make Monday better is to have a sweet treat.

So it seems that St. Patrick’s Day either involves booze or mint.  These Mudslide Brownies have the boozey dessert angle covered.  So how about a quick and easy snack that has the mint angle covered?  Seriously, these are so easy.  You are about 10 minutes away from snacking.  I had a problem staying out of this muddy buddy mix, they were just down right addicting.  I packaged them up right away to send in to work with my husband.  But I kept having to stop myself from going into the mud room to sneak a handful.

If you have Thin Mints that you haven’t eaten yet, use them here.  If you don’t have any, pick up the Grasshopper Cookies by Keebler, they are essentially the same thing.  Use 1 row of them to mix with the powdered sugar to coat the cereal, the other row you just mix in and get to eat those pieces 🙂 I found the dark chocolate mint M&M’s to add some color, but if you can’t find them just leave them out.

I like the different textures in this recipe. The smoothness of the chocolate pieces combined with the flavor of the mint extract really livened up the mix. The powdered sugar was the icing on the cake as the soft sweetness of the sugar mellowed and soothed the biting after taste of the mint when you accidentally add just a little too much! ;D
