Hi. My name is Carrie and I am addicted to Muddy Buddies. Ok phew. The first stage is admitting it. Unfortunately, I have also accepted the fact that I will always be addicted! What is it with these that are so delicious? I even had to get a bag on our most recent road trip. They weren’t the same as a fresh batch made at home, but they still were great! Someone told me a few weeks back when I posted the last muddy buddy recipe that I should make a mint kind. I gladly took on the challenge. Holy yum! I loved the mint flavor in these!

5 oz
guittards green mint chips (or green candy melts, the thin mints will still make them minty)

4
Melt the mint chocolate chips (or green candy melts) and milk chocolate in separate microwave safe bowls. Melt 30 seconds at a time with 1/2 teaspoons shortening in each stirring after each 30 seconds until melted.

Once melted, stir in the chocolate into the separate bowls with Chex cereal until the Chex are coated well with the chocolate.
6
Add the mint chocolate and milk chocolate separately to the gallon sized bags with powdered sugar and crushed thin mints and shake until they are coated.
