December is in full swing, and I’m happy to present another tasty gift-worthy recipe. This time, it’s a quick and easy mint bark, made from a bag of Andes Creme de Menthe chips. One bag costs right around $3.50. With additional ingredients, the total cost of the recipe is about $4.00. Not bad for a gift, huh?

When I tell you this recipe really couldn’t be easier – I really mean it. For someone who has a tendency to mess up dessert recipes like myself (I blame it on my oven) I couldn’t be happier with this recipe. Absolutely foolproof.
Package this tasty mint bark in a pretty box and you’ve got yourself a perfectly acceptable Christmas gift for less than $5. Easy as pie.

Andes Mint Bark Recipe
1 10-ounce bag of Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips
1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds
Colored sprinkles, optional
Preheat oven to 250F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour baking chips on top of parchment paper and spread in an even layer. Heat in oven for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until chips are melted. Remove from oven. Run a butter knife through the melted chips a few times to make a marbled design. Top with almonds and sprinkles. Place in fridge until mint bark hardens - about an hour. Remove from fridge and break into pieces.
