Hide Images
  • 1
    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place dark chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered for 2-3 minutes. Stir, and continue heating in short intervals until chocolate is smooth and glossy when you stir it.
  • 2
    Pour chocolate out onto parchment and use a large rubber spatula to spread in a thin, even layer (about 1/4 inch thick).
  • 3
    Immediately sprinkle cereal over the chocolate, followed by the mint-chocolate baking chips and marshmallow bits.
  • 4
    Let stand about 30 minutes or until firm, or refrigerate if necessary. Break into 2-inch pieces. Store covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • If you can’t find canisters of mini marshmallow bits in your grocery store’s baking aisle, you can substitute regular mini marshmallows, although you may need more than 3/4 cup.
  • Parchment paper works best for this recipe, but you can also use wax paper or foil in a pinch.
