Making fudge has become one of my favorite things to do. I have a long list of flavors I still want to try out. Think of all the creativity you can have when you know you’ve got a good base. Knowing how to make fudge is a useful trick.
Plus, most of my fudge recipes don’t need candy thermometers, so there’s that.
I know I already have a mint chocolate fudge recipe on my blog. But it’s a two ingredient version, so I feel very safe creating another delicious recipe.
I mean c’mon, you can’t have too many chocolate mint recipes. Can you?
After the holidays, I tend to take stock of what’s in my pantry. We spend most of February eating out of our pantry in an effort to 1. Save money and 2. Purge the pantry.
One of the items I found hidden in the back was three bags of Andes Chocolate Mint Baking Chips . How did these get forgotten? Yes, it could be, because I am a hoarder of baking chips.
Instead of using white chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips as the base of this fudge…I decided to use a bag of Andes mint chips.
I wasn’t sure if it would turn out okay… would they clump? Would they taste bad? Only one way to find out!
How to Make Andes Mint Fudge
Line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
PRO TIP: To keep the parchment paper in place, use binder clips or mini clothespins to hold it secure.
In a large mixing bowl, add 1 bag Andes baking chips and marshmallow cream. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, salt, and heavy cream. Heat over medium high heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to boil.
Continue boiling for a full 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour over Andes chips and marshmallow cream.
Using an electric mixer, beat for about one minutes, until melted and smooth.
Gently fold in the extra cup of Andes baking chips. Stir as little as possible.
Pour into prepared pan and refrigerate for 4 hours.
For the garnish, drizzle melted chocolate over the fudge and add sprinkles. Totally optional.
Cut and serve.

This Andes Mint Fudge turned out amazing. I also folded in some extra Andes baking chips… just for a little texture for this fudge. I could also envision adding some of those Oreo Mint Cookies crushed up (are we on the same page with this???).
For the garnish – yes, fudge can have a garnish – I melted some milk chocolate chips and drizzled it over the top. I also used a little green and white sprinkles left over from St. Paddy’s Day. I hope you don’t mind!
