Andes Mint Bars

Getting a few Andes mints after a meal at The Olive Garden was one of my favorite treats as a kid.

I’m a huge fan of the mint chocolate flavor profile, and mint chocolate chip ice cream is still an all-time favorite.

It’s no wonder that I’m in love with these ooey-gooey mint chocolate magic bars!

My Andes mint bars offer a little twist on the traditional coconut magic bars.

The difference is, you just swap regular chocolate chips for some coarsely chopped Andes mints.

Have I mentioned that when it comes to sweets, I am in love with brownies and bars? In fact, if you love old-fashioned recipes, be sure to our lunch lady brownies.

Fun Fact: Did you know that Andes mints are actually called Andes Creme De Menthe Thins?

They’ll always be those mints you get at Olive Garden to me. ?

These iconic mint candies make the perfect creamy addition to these coconut bars!

Are These The Same As Magic Bars or 7 Layer Bars?

Yes, and the magic is in the layering.

The sweetened condensed milk filters through the layers of ingredients and sinks down to the bottom.

You end up with an amazing bar that has a sweet and chewy dulce de leche style crust around the edges

Quick Tips

If you’re not a fan of mint, you can substitute the 3/4 cup Andes for 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Be sure to let your mint chocolate magic bars cool completely before cutting. They will seem very melty at first but will set up.

Choose quality shredded sweetened coconut. I like Baker’s brand and have found that a store-brand equivalent doesn’t work as well.

Just look at how gorgeous these Andes mint bars are from the side. This is a mint, chocolate, and coconut-lover’s DREAM DESSERT, Y’all. ?

I hope you love my mint chocolate magic bars recipe!
