I love mint.

[You know that doesn’t mean I’ll grab a tube of toothpaste and chow down, right?]

Mint is wonderful.

 This recipe is the perfect mix of crunch, mint, and chocolate.

Here’s the source for this refreshing [it’s mint — of course it’s refreshing] treat.

Here’s how things went down when me and my baking buddies, Cathy and Tyler.

[I hope you ever have the chance to meet them. They are remarkable and delightful people.]

It’s a 3-ingredient list:

6-7 cups Rice Chex cereal [Using a generic brand proved as tasty.]

2 boxes (4.67 oz each), unwrapped and melted
[If you happen to try melting the little nuggets with the wrapping on, please let me know how that works.]

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

You’ll also need a large mixing bowl, a medium microwaveable bowl, a 1-gallon size plastic bag, and a large mixing spoon/spatula.


Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl.

Measure the powdered sugar into the plastic bag and set it aside.

Unwrap those delectable Andes Mints into a microwave safe bowl.

If you plan [and I use the word plan intentionally because that’s what I did–planned] to nibble on them whilst you’re unwrapping, make sure you purchase an extra box.

Use the 30-second rule when melting the chocolate candies:

30 seconds in the microwave.


Melt and stir.

Melt and stir.

That’s 30 seconds into the melting and one stir.

I plunked in 30 seconds more and checked it at 20 seconds — a quick stir and it was done.

Pour the melted mint and chocolate over the Rice Chex and mix.

Carefully mix until the cereal is evenly coated.

[You don’t want microscopic pieces of cereal to rule the day.]

Remember the plastic bag with the powdered sugar in it? Yeh-yeh. Grab that.

Okay — add that tasty mix of cereal and melted Andes Mints to the bag of powdered sugar at your convenience.

As long as ‘at your convenience’ is fairly quickly — you don’t want the chocolate to start acting like cement that’s drying.

Transfer the cereal mix to the powdered sugar in the plastic bag [don’t use a paper bag]
and shake, shake, shake until there’s a fine, wonderful coating of the powdery stuff covering every morsel.

Wait for the dust to settle.

Pour the Muddy Buddy Andes Mint mix into a fancy bowl.

Or just a bowl.

Or eat it out of the plastic bag.

It’s delicious and quick.


Measure. Pour. Measure. Pour. Unwrap. Melt. Stir. Melt. Pour. Place. Toss. Eat.
