Do you like Andes mints? I love them. They make Andes Mint pieces for baking! Check your local grocery store where the chocolate chips are. I found them at Harris Teeter. Here is the recipe, I hope you'll try this sometime!
Andes Mint Chocolate Frosting
1 bag of Andes Mint baking chips, divided
1 box confectioners' sugar
6 Tbsp milk
1/2 stick of butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
Mix together 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, milk, butter, vanilla and salt in the blender. Place 2/3 of the bag of mint chocolate in a double boiler, and put water in the pot below and turn on high. Melt the chocolate. Add the blend from the mixing bowl to the double boiler and mix over the heat until smooth. Return the new mixture to the mixing bowl and gradually beat in remaining sugar until it is the right consistency for smoothing. Frost a cooled cake with the frosting and enjoy! With the remaining pieces of Andes Mints, you can eat them or sprinkle them on top of the frosted cake!
