The last time I posted puppy chow there may have been some confusion about what exactly I meant by “puppy chow.” It’s Muddy Buddies. Puppy Chow. FOR HUMANS. Now, I hope to not receive any nasty emails about how chocolate is bad for dogs. K, thanks. But I did get a chuckle out of your dedication to your hounds. However, if you had read my post about puppy chow it would have been clear that it was for people. Just sayin.

Now, let’s get to THIS puppy chow. Raise your hand if you love Thin Mint cookies? Raise your hand if you can eat a whole sleeve of Thin Mint cookies? Raise your hand if you can eat a whole box of Thin Mints?

Yep, I see a few hands raised! And those are just MY hands. (did any of you actually raise your hands?)

I combined chocolate Candiquik with a 3.5oz Green & Black’s Mint Chocolate bar and melted them together. It was the perfect amount of mint needed in this chocolate combination. I know Nestle also sells dark chocolate and mint morsels. Those would work too! I also added in some mint m&m candies that I found at Target. It gave them such a cute color, perfect for St.Patty’s Day!

Needless to say we devoured this treat quickly in our house. I thought maybe it would last longer than a box of Thin Mint cookies. Nope, we just ate more!! Ha!

Today my BFF Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life is also posting a Thin Mint Recipe! We are always on the same wavelength when it comes to desserts! Check out her Thin Mint Fudge Brownies!
