So this is the VERY SHORT ingredient list:
(1) 14 oz can condensed milk
(1) 14 oz package of semi sweet chocolate chips.
(1) 10 oz package of Andes mint chips
And that is it! I told you it was easy. BTW those Andes mint chips are not that easy to find. I saw them at Aldi a few weeks back but when I went back to get them they were no more! *sigh* I finally found them at *gasp* Wallmart. (If you know me you know that I only step foot in that store maybe once every two years. I do not care for the place.) I suspect that buying a bag of the normal size Andes Mints which are much easier to find and just crushing them up yourself would have worked as well. It would just add a couple minutes to the process and we are focused on efficiency here aren't we?
So you just pour all three ingredients into a microwaveable bowl and fire it up in the microwave for 3 minutes. (If you are unsure about how your exact microwave settings I suggest taking it out after 2 minutes to see if it is ready. If not then continue at 30 second increments.)
Take out and stir until all is smooth and combined. This takes just a few seconds.
Pour into a 8"x8" or 9"x9" if you want thick pieces or put into a 9"x13" if you want thin pieces. Then just set it aside and let it cool. After a while you can cut it into small pieces. I emphasize the small. These are very rich and a little goes a very long way. I may even cut mine a bit smaller than the way you see it at the top. I'm really not kidding about the rich part. But yummy yummy yummy! Next time I might put 1/2 a bag of the Andes mint to see if I can get a more subtle flavor or switch it up with some butterscotch instead of the mint. So many possibilities!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas Eve! ^_^
Do what makes you happy.
