Fudge Mint Magic Cookie Bars

I think everyone has a different name for magic cookie bars– I grew up calling them 7 layer bars, but I’ve heard several variations along the way. To see an original version, click here (but come back!).
I was excited to try a Thin Mint version, but wasn’t totally sure how to approach it without the coconut and the pecans– that seemed a little empty.
And even after I had made them, and took a bite fresh out of the oven–
I was kind of like, “ehhhhhhh, they’re ok…”
But they tasted a little “caramel-y” warm. Which does not go with mint.
So I set them on the counter to cool overnight, fingers crossed for a better result in the morning.
Done.
Totally delivered.
They were totally, completely,  incredibly addictive.
Were, as in: past tense.
Because they are gone, gone, gone.
These are totally worth using an entire box of thin mints on.
And I don’t mess around with  my Thin Mints, so you can trust me…
I’m a professional.
A professional Thin Mint eater.
(and if you just can’t bring yourself to part with an entire box, Keebler makes a great alternative)!

Instructions

  1. Line 9×9 baking dish with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Pour in melted butter.
  3. Crush one sleeve of thin mints (should be about 1 cup). Pour crumbs into the baking dish and press firmly and evenly into the butter, until smooth.
  4. Spread white chocolate chips over the crumbs, and pour 3/4 of the can of Sweetened condensed milk over top (the sweetened condensed milk should cover the top of the chocolate chips, but they shouldn’t be swimming in it).
  5. Break up the remaining thin mints into small chunks. Pour over the sweetened condensed milk and press in.
  6. Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely before cutting and serving.
