Andies Mint Blondies

Andes Mint Blondies

Andes Blondies are delicious and rich white chocolate blondies infused with peppermint flavor and topped with classic Andes mints. A perfect flavor blend!

These are called Andes Blondies, but when you say it, you should pronounce it like, “Andes Blaanndies.”  So it rhymes.

Rhyming is important for a dish like this.

Other things that are very important for this dessert:  peppermint, chocolate, butter.

More good news: These blaanndies are super-easy to make.  Just a few ingredients and maybe ten minutes of stirring and you’re on your way to some delicious dessert bars that will absolutely disappear.

They are rich and chewy and have an awesome chocolate and peppermint flavor.

How to Make Blondies Batter

If you’ve never made blondies before, they are very similar to brownies except not brown.  Basically, there’s no chocolate mixed into the batter itself, but you can always fold in chocolate chips or something like I did.

Sugar and Butter - Andies Mint Blondies

To start the batter, just melt the butter and sugar over a double boiler or in a pan over low heat.  You don’t want to burn the butter or sugar so just be careful with it.

Once the sugar is dissolved with the melted butter, take it off the heat and whisk in the extracts (vanilla and peppermint).  Continue to whisk the butter/sugar mixture gently until it cools down a bit.

It won’t take long to cool down, but you want to make sure it’s not hot when you add the eggs or you’ll end up with an Andies scrambled egg casserole which is definitely not delicious.

Adding Flour - Andies Mint Blondies

Whisk in the eggs and then stir in the flour and the pinch of salt.

Once your batter is mixed up, you can fold in all those delicious chocolate chips!

Baking and Topping Mint Blondies

Pour your batter into a lightly buttered 9×13 baking dish and bake it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.  I always err on the side of under-baking stuff like this so you might want to start checking yours around 28 minutes.

To make it easier to take the blondies out, you can also line the pan with parchment paper. I like to do this but it’s not 100% essential.

Ready to bake - Mint Blondies

Ideally, the blondies will be lightly browned around the edges and still slightly soft in the center.

After 3o minutes, mine were perfect.

I’ll be honest.  The most annoying part of this recipe is unwrapping 28 Andes mints.

Once you have them unwrapped though, give them a very rough chop.

Andies Mints Chopped

I decided to add my Andes mints in two batches.  I added about half right away and those melt onto the blondies.

Then I let the blondies cool down to roughly room temperature and then I added the last half and just gently pressed them into the blondies so they stick.

This way half of them are whole and half are melted.

I like the look that this gave them, but it’s not really necessary.  I think you could add all of them right away or wait.  Whatever works for ya.

These Andes Mint Blondies are dense and chewy bars that have a very delicious flavor.

Besides being wonderfully decadent, they also have the added bonus of giving you minty fresh breath!

  1. Oh man, I used to love Andies mints. Totally the kind of thing my paternal grandmother would keep in a dish in the living room, and I would pilfer more every time she turned around. Put ’em in a blondie, and I might be in nostalgic heaven.

      1. My grandmother used to always have these around also! It was a very nostalgic taste for me also.

  2. I would love to try this recipe, I
    like that it’s so different that the usual! How much flour is used in the recipe? You referred to flour in your description but it’s not in the ingredient listing. Thanks!

    1. Wow! Wish I would’ve known about that! I was thinking that they should make this to make baking easier. Thanks for the link Megan!

  3. These look delicious! If I were to bake these the day before a party, would you recommend refrigerating the dish overnight? Are they ok to serve at room temperature?

    1. Definitely fine to serve at room temperature. I would probably stick them in the fridge overnight, but they will be great the next day.

  4. I made these last night for a party i’m going to tonight. They are soo good! Hope everyone else likes them too.
