How To Make Chocolate Mint Magic Bars

This is such a super easy recipe that you won’t believe how fast it comes together!

Begin by pressing a package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan and bake for 15 minutes.

Then sprinkle half the amounts of both the Mint Oreos and chocolate chunks, all the Andes Mints, and evenly pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top.

Sprinkle the remainder of the Oreos and chocolate chunks, add the Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates, the white chocolate chips, and bake.

What Kind Of Cookie Dough to Use?

I prefer using the flat packages of refrigerated cookie dough for this recipe, rather than the tubes of dough, since it’s easier to smoosh the flat packages but technically either will work.

If you don’t have refrigerated cookie dough in your area, you could try making a half batch of my Best Soft and Chewy Cookies recipe and trying that. However, I haven’t personally tested this recipe this way.

Chocolate Substitutions

Regarding the various types of chocolate used such as the Andes Mints and Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates, if you don’t have them in your area or can’t find them, you can substitute with another brand of mint chocolate.

Or simply use another type of plain chocolate bar, noting that if you do so, these definitely will not have as much minty flavor.

Regular Oreos can be substituted for Mint Oreos as well, if again, you can’t find them in your area.

Tips For The Best Mint Magic Bars

Mint magic bars will be very gooey immediately after removing them from the oven so I recommend giving them about 2 hours to cool before slicing into them.

If you’re in a hurry, you could try speeding this process up by placing them in the refrigerator for an hour.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 16 Mint Oreos, divided and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks, divided
  • 14 Andes Mints, coarsely chopped
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 10 Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
    2. Press the refrigerated cookie dough* into the bottom of the pan evenly and bake for 15 minutes.
    3. Remove from the oven and add half of the chopped Mint Oreos, ½ cup of the chocolate chunks, and all the chopped Andes Mints on top of the cookie base layer.
    4. Evenly drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the top; it does not have to perfectly cover.
    5. Add the remaining Oreos and chocolate chunks, add all of the Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates, all the white chocolate chips, and bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until the condensed milk is a light caramel color.
    6. Allow the bars to cool in the pan for at least 2 hours** before removing and slicing. Bars will keep airtight at room temp for up to 1 week and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
