Like a Krispy Treat, only Popcorn! Mint Chocolate Chip Popcorn Treats are filled with marshmallows, mini chocolate chips, and a packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations in Mint Chocolate Chip to give them their minty flavor and green color!
Last week, on Instagram, I posted a picture of a recipe fail. The picture was of a bunch of green popcorn in the trashcan. That was a sad, sad moment. I really, really hate recipe fails. It kind of feels like when you were a kid and dropped your ice cream cone three licks in. Except now, as an adult, my mommy isn’t here to buy me more ice cream.
Luckily for you, that recipe fail turned into these bars of wonderful.
I had originally been trying to make a popcorn concoction with white chocolate, marshmallows, and Duncan Hines Mint Chocolate Frosting Creations. White chocolate and me, we are not BFFs. Let me put it this way: when I buy white chocolate melts I buy extra. Because I know, without fail, I will ruin the first batch. I’m also very, very happy I had bought two of those Mint Chocolate Frosting Creations, just in case.
Because I had two in my cabinet, I was still able to bring you these Mint Chocolate Popcorn Treats. They’re like krispie treats…except with popcorn.
And they’re gooooood.
I made something similar to these way back when I started blogging. I’m not even going to link to it, but if you go on a hunt please don’t judge the pics I thought were amazing, mmkay?
These are made just like a krispie treat – melted marshmallows and butter. I use lots of marshmallows because I like my treats goooooey. Like, Marshmallow Treats with Popcorn gooey. So…be forewarned. If you like your treats less sticky, you can feel free to add less marshmallows, or add more popcorn.
The Frosting Creations packet is added after all the melting happens. I used the Mint Chocolate because, well, St. Patrick’s Day is next week. And somehow March 17 is the green mint holiday. Plus, I love me some mint chocolate anything. And the flavor is perfect – it tastes just mint chocolate ice cream!
These are the kind of recipe fails I’m happy with. Ones that end up in treats like these!
