In a large heavy bottom pan, melt butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows. Reduce heat to low and continue stirring until completely melted.

Remove from heat and stir in the first teaspoon of mint extract. Add the cereal and stir. Right before you pour into the pan, add the chopped mint chocolates.

Pour into the prepared baking dish. Press GENTLY with your fingertips just until completely spread out, butter or spray your hands to make it easier. Allow to set, about 1 hour.
