No Thin Mints are actually harmed in making this recipe! However, this Puppy Chow tastes like your favorite Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies!


  • 16 ounce Ghirardelli chocolate wafers
  • ½ cup chopped Andes mint candy (or Andes baking bits)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 10 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 bag (8 ounce) Mint m&m candies


  1. In microwave, melt chocolate wafers with mint candy together for one minute, stir and continue melting in 30 second intervals until smooth (mine took a total of 2 minutes).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cereal with melted chocolate. Fold with a large wooden spoon until all cereal is coated.
  3. In a large, gallon sized ziploc bag, add powdered sugar. Spoon in chocolate cereal mixture. Seal bag and shake until powdered sugar is coating all the cereal completely. Pour onto a large piece of wax paper and allow chocolate to set (about 20 minutes). Combine candies with chex and store in an airtight container. ENJOY!
