Mint Chocolate Rice Krispies

I have been on a Rice Krispie treat kick lately.  My youngest had some and told me that he wanted to have his friends over from school so they could try the yummy chocolate rice krispies that his mommy made.  Awe!  He really knows how to melt my heart!  :)  I love the way that you can easily change rice krispie treats and make them your own.  I’ve even covered them in fondant and put them on a cake to decorate.  They are so yummy and versatile that there isn’t anything not to love!  I decided to make these mint chocolate to help celebrate St. Patty’s Day but really who needs an excuse for mint and chocolate, right?  You can easily add more chocolate to this recipe, I was running out but you do still taste the chocolate with this version.  Play around and give them a taste.  Let us know what you think!
