i can't stop myself!

I stole these from my mom's house, sorry mom! Anyway, i just can't stop eating them. They are so minty cool... thought you'd like to know. I wonder if I could create a yummy dessert out of them? There are probably a billion recipes already out there, maybe I'll do a little internet search. Do you know of any recipes involving Andes Mints?

you've always loved those...remember how i would buy them for church treats?

Lindsey said...

Yes...Andes mints.

Okay, here's what you do:

Make your fave brownies--even the boxed ones--like Ghirardelli. Take the brownies out a few minutes early and layer unwrapped A.M. on top and put back in the oven. Let them cool and cut into squares.

I could eat the whole pan.

I LOVE Andes Mints! They are my favorite! I almost single handedly wipe Olive Garden out of stock when I go. yum.

Caroline said...

Yes... andes.

I make mint chocolate cupcakes once. (I should post the recipe on my blog) they were super good.
Make chocolate cup cakes.
Take vanilla frosting, add mint extract, green food coloring.. frost.. put an andes mint on the top. super fun and cute!

p.s. you saw my blog on modish? where? or did i just make a comment?

Kelly,
I have a recipe of Coozy's (somewhere) that does not use Andes Mints, but you actually make them --- as many as you want. I'll look for it and send it to you.

I've got to take a moment to compose myself after reading this post. The only thing I love better than an andes mint... Is Andes Mint cheesecake! I'll have to dig around for my recipe.

My friend and I went to Olive Garden this week and we were a little disappointed that they only gave us one mint each! For some reason I never buy these though. I guess in my mind they are special restaurant treats, but now I'm reconsidering...

I've had the Andes Mint brownies before and they are sooo good.
