Here’s what you need for this Andes Mint Fudge recipe.

Tips and Tricks
- Add your Andes mint chips and marshmallow creme to a mixing bowl before you boil the sugar, butter and cream.
- After boiling the sugar mixture for 3 -4 minutes, pour it directly over the marshmallow creme and mint chips.
- Use an electric mixer to quickly beat the ingredients together until smooth and combined.
- Fold an extra cup of Andes baking chips in to the fudge mixture. Stir gently to prevent them from melting entirely.
- Pour the fudge into a pan and let it set at room temperature.
- Drizzle melted milk chocolate over the Andes mint fudge once set. Immediately add the sprinkles to the melted chocolate so they stick!
I store the Andes Mint Fudge at room temperature in an airtight container. It will stay good for up to a week, but never makes it that long in our house. It’s just too good to stop eating!
You can use any kind of sprinkles for this fudge! This time, I used shamrock sprinkles for a St. Patty’s day vibe. Green sprinkles help identify the flavor of this fudge but you can use any color you prefer.
If your fudge did not set up properly, you may not have boiled the liquid ingredients long enough. Make sure to bring the butter, cream and sugar to a full ROLLING boil and keep it boiling for 3 to 4 minutes.
Yes, you can use salted butter if that’s what you have on hand. Just don’t add any additional salt to the recipe.
