Chocolate Mint Graham Cracker Crunch is the perfect to celebrate dessert for St. Patrick’s Day or whenever you just crave a hint of mint
Hi again, Princess Pinky readers! Nicole from 365(ish) Days of Pinterest here with another easy treat – Chocolate Mint Graham Cracker Crunch. This is such an easy recipe to make and serves a crowd. You know that Saltine Toffee stuff that everyone goes nuts over at Christmas? This is similar to that, only better. 😉
I don’t like corned beef. I’m not a huge fan of cabbage. Potato soup makes me sad. Shepherd’s Pie turns my husband’s stomach. So, I guess you could say we’d throw a terrible St. Patrick’s Day party. For me, when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, the closest I get to authentic is green. What’s the best way to eat green food, you ask? (Aside from a nice healthy kale salad) Mint! More specifically, chocolate and mint. I am a huge fan of chocolate mint. This sweet treat is a variation of my Valentine’s Day Graham Cracker Crunch from last year-Chocolate Mint Graham Cracker Crunch.
USEFUL TOOLS WE LOVE
You can vary this recipe for other holidays too:
- For Valentine’s Day – use strawberry extract, swap red candy melts and Valentine’s Day Sprinkles
- For Christmas – use green candy melts and Christmas sprinkles

All Things Mint:
Chocolate Mint Graham Cracker Crunch
- 10-12 chocolate graham crackers enough to fill a large baking sheet
- ½ cup butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup green candy melts
- ¼ tsp peppermint extract
- Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- Place graham crackers close together on the sheet. (You don't have to break them apart before cooking.)
- In a small sauce pan, bring the butter and brown sugar and salt to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit for about 3 minutes.
- Pour the brown sugar mix over the crackers, being sure to cover each one.
- Bake for 8 minutes.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the crackers. Let sit for a couple minutes to soften and then spread the chocolate over the crackers.
- Melt the candy melts according to package directions then stir in the peppermint and pour over the chocolate. Carefully spread it out to cover the chocolate layer. A little swirling and mixing is OK-it's pretty! 😉
- Top with sprinkles and let harden (you can speed up the process by putting the pan in the freezer for about 10 minutebefore cutting into pieces to serve.
I was bummed that I couldn’t find any four leaf clover sprinkles or something fun like that. But I guess that keeps this recipe from being too seasonal. You can certainly enjoy chocolate mint any time of the year, right?
