New Cereal Inspires Brownie Crunch Mint Crispy Bars

When a new chocolate cereal hits the breakfast aisle, it’s only natural for bakers to wave their magic sugar wand and turn them into a pan of sticky, gooey treats. The added bonus in these Brownie Crunch Mint Crispy Bars is the addition of Andes® Crème de Menthe Baking Chips.

You may want to buy two boxes of the new General Mills Cocoa Puffs® Brownie Crunch cereal because they are so good, you’ll want one box for this recipe and one for snacking.

{Brownie Crunch Mint Crispy Bars}

4 Tablespoons butter

5 cups miniature marshmallows, divided

7 cups General Mills Cocoa Puffs® Brownie Crunch cereal

1 cup Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips, divided

Lightly butter a 9×13 pan or line with parchment paper.

On low heat, either stove top or in microwave, melt 4 Tbsp. butter and 4 cups of marshmallows together. Stir until melted and combined. Remove from heat. Add the cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir until cereal is coated. Stir in 1 cup of marshmallows and 3/4 cup Andes chips. Spread mixture in pan and sprinkle 1/4 cup Andes chips on top. Gently press and smooth the mixture with the back of a metal spoon or a spatula sprayed with cooking spray.

Cool and cut into squares, triangles or rectangles. Any way you slice them, they will disappear quickly!
