March means St. Patrick’s Day themed everything! Clover leaves and green are everywhere, so why not celebrate with a snack for the season? Here is a treat worthy of a leprechaun!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 bag of green candy melts
  • 1 drop of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar

Add the rice cereal to a large mixing bowl and set that aside. Pour the green candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and melt them in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until the candies are melted. Once they are melted, stir in the essential oil. Add the powdered sugar to a large Ziploc bag and set it aside. Pour the melted candy mixture into the mixing bowl and mix it with the cereal until it is covered. Pour the mixture into the Ziploc bag and shake it so the cereal is covered with powdered sugar. Pour the puppy chow onto a large baking sheet and allow it to cool. Then store it in a Ziploc bag!

This stuff wouldn’t last long around me! I’m a sucker for mint flavored sweets.

XOXO, Chels
