A rich and decadent Dark Chocolate Fudge loaded with Andes Mint chips and peppermint extract. A easy and delicious dessert just in time for Christmas!


  • 3 {10 oz.} bags of dark chocolate chips
  • 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint oil or 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of Andes Mint Chips


  1. Grease a 8×8 or 8×11 baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle the bottom of the baking dish with 1 cup of Andes Mint chips and set aside.
  3. Place a medium sauce pot over medium heat with 2 inches of water. Place a glass bowl over the top, making sure the glass doesn’t touch the water. Pour the sweetened condensed milk and butter in the bowl and heat.
  4. Add the dark chocolate chips and salt in the bowl. Stir the chocolate as it melts and thickens. {about 5 -7 minutes.}
  5. The mixture should thicken to a THICK cake batter consistency, almost too thick to pour. {if your fudge looks grainy and not smooth then add 1/4-1/2 cup of water to smooth it out}
  6. Add peppermint oil {or peppermint extract} and vanilla extract, mix well.
  7. Pour the mixture into the dish with Andes chips.
  8. Gently tap the dish on the counter to allow air bubbles to rise to the surface for a smooth appearance.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Andes Mint chips over the top and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, maybe longer, to set.
  10. To cut, dip a sharp knife in hot tap water, wipe and cut quickly. Dip and wipe the knife between cuts. Cut into 1 inch squares.
