One thing you should know about me, is I tend to get on my little kicks. There are weeks where we’ll watch nothing but Fixer Upper every night. Sometimes we’ll have a different version of flatbreads 5 times in one week. Or you may just see me wearing nothing but yellow shoes for 2 months.
I’m not exactly known for moderation.
So when I was fiddling around in the kitchen a couple months ago for a post I had to write, and I emerged with these Toffee Fudge Bars…
I kind of had a feeling it wouldn’t be the last we saw of this recipe. Or many variations of it.
I had a bag of Hershey’s Mint Chocolate Chips in my pantry already (I actually have 6 bags. No joke. But I’m trying not to give away all my freaky secrets), so I decided to run with this flavor since it’s one of my son’s favorites.
But then, of course, I had to run with the mint theme and carry it the whole way through. These Oreo Mint Cookies are a rare treat for us, but were totally necessary for this recipe!
Honestly, just look at that crust! I love seeing all these distinct layers! The filling just holds up SO well!
Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge Bars
- 6 tbsp butter melted
- 2 1/4 cups Oreo Mint Cookies crushed into fine crumbs
- 1 cup sugar
- 5 oz. evaporated milk
- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 1 bag 10.5 oz. mini marshmallows
- 2 cups Hershey's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 2 cups Hershey's Mint Chocolate Chips
For crust: Mix melted butter and cookie crumbs. Press on bottom of foil-lined 13x9 pan and set aside.
For Filling: In a large saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, softened butter and marshmallows. Heat over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring very frequently. Continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips, stir until completely melted.
Pour immediately over prepared crust and spread until smooth. Sprinkle Mint Chocolate chips over filling and press lightly. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Cut into bars and store in the refrigerator.
Once they’re set, I lift the entire thing of foil out of the pan. Separate the bars from the foil (you can lift them right off just like in the picture above). If you aren’t able to lift it off easily, then they aren’t completely set yet. Then just cut and enjoy!!
