Mint Chocolate Chip Popcorn Treats
These EASY Mint Chip Popcorn Treats are like a Rice Krispie Treat, but it's made with popcorn! Add some MINT flavoring and chocolate chips and you have a yummy mint chip dessert recipe!
Servings 9 -16 bars, depending on size
- 6-7 cups popcorn popped with kernels removed (from a 3 ounce microwave popcorn bag)
- 10 ounces marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 2-3 drops green food coloring
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Spray a 9x9” pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Pop your popcorn. I used a 3 ounce microwave popcorn packet, but you can use an air popper too, whatever you have. Pick over the popped corn and remove all unpopped kernels. Place about 6-7 cups of popped popcorn in a large bowl.
Place marshmallows and butter in another larger, microwave safe, bowl. Heat for 60 seconds; stir. Heat for an additional 30-60 seconds, stirring after 30, until marshmallows are fully melted. Quickly stir in extract and food coloring.
Pour popcorn into melted marshmallows and stir carefully. Pour into prepared pan. Working quickly, spray your hands with cooking spray and press evenly in to the pan. Immediately sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the top of the popcorn and press lightly to make it stick. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Best eaten within 2 days. Store in a tightly covered container.
