Thin Mint Chex Mix

I love Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. I usually buy three boxes when they are one sale. Frozen Thin Mints with cold milk is such a refreshing treat anytime of the year. I also like to find recipes where I can incorporate these sweet treats. This one came from Pinterest. If you didn’t stock pile for the year like I did, you can also substitute Keebler’s version available throughout the year in your grocer’s cracker/cookie aisle.

Raspberry Bites

I saw this recipe on Pinterest. It was a little different than my Rolo Pretzels Bites. The recipe online used the square pretzel which is a great alternative when you can’t find the round ones. I decided to give it a try. To my surprise, the Kisses melted just as nicely as the Rolos. I think it is a great way to change the flavor of these simple treats by using whatever flavor of Kisses you most desire.

Place baking mat on a cookie sheet.  Line mat with pretzels. Place a Hershey’s Kiss (point side up) in the center of each. Bake at 225 degrees for 4 minutes. Remove from oven and place M&M in the center of each. Chill in the refrigerator until harden.
