Who doesn’t love a good Andes chocolate mint? A thin layer of refreshing mint sandwiched between two layers of rich chocolate. That’s the stuff dreams are made of. 😛 Okay, now imagine a WHOLE PIE full of it! If your head hasn’t exploded yet, read on to see how this addicting Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Pie is made!
One of the best parts about this Andes Mint Pie is the sweet Oreo filled pie crust! It requires only two simple ingredients: Oreos & Butter. It’s incredibly easy to make by pulsing the Oreos in a food processor until they’re crumbled and then mixing in the melted butter.
Press your crust mixture into a 9-inch pie dish creating a nice, thick crust. I like to freeze my crust for at least 20 minutes to help it harden before I add the filling. Oh, and if you want to make things even easier, you can buy ready-made Oreo Crust instead!
THE PIE FILLING
Next up you’ve got the amazing pie filling! It’s got cream cheese, whipped cream, milk and powdered sugar. And as I’m sure you’ve deduced from the title; this pie consists of a ton of Andes mints and chocolate chips in the filling. I used a mixture of mini chocolate chips and chopped up Andes mints. And don’t forget the peppermint extract for extra minty flavor!
Now, I’d suggest you keep a few Andes mints on the side because this pie isn’t complete without that extra layer of sprinkled mints on top! Not only does it give it an appealing look, but it adds an extra unaltered Andes taste to the mix. From top to bottom, this pie will be filled with chocolatey, minty, decadent flavor!
COOLING THE PIE
I guarantee you’ll want to dig in to this pie as soon as you finish it. BUT try to control the temptation because this pie is definitely best served cold! I like to put it in the freezer so that it hardens faster. But keep in mind, this will make the crust a little harder to cut through. If you have the patience, then it’s best to let it cool in the fridge for about 2-4 hours.
