Candy Review: Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins

Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins

I don’t understand why I am hesitant to eat mint-flavored candy. I mean, I do like the taste of it. Hand me a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream and watch me make it disappear in seconds. But probably because of my dislike for gum, I avoid most mint products. It isn’t that there isn’t a non-gum mint candy out there, but not enough of them, and not enough of them done well.

As I strolled down the candy aisle at my local Dollar Tree Store, a pretty red box caught my attention. “Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins” the box proclaimed. Hmm I thought. I never much cared for regular Andes Thins: Crème de Menthe, but we all know that I am a sucker for fruit in chocolate.

Maybe because it was the cherry, maybe it was because I wanted to branch out from my mint horizons, or maybe I will just buy candy because I love it, but whatever the reason, I picked up a box and headed to the register with a dollar clenched in my fist.

Candy Recipe: Andes Mint Covered Brownies

Andes Mints

Ok, this isn’t a real recipe since it doesn’t tell you how to make the brownies, just how to add Andes Mints to them. This is more like a semi-homemade recipe. I can’t take credit for this recipe though. I found it accidentally while Googling something candy-related. It was posted by someone who goes by “ermlabrat” in this forum post. Here it is:

Bake a pan of brownies – a square pan seems to make the brownie to mint ratio just right – then when you take them out of the oven, cover them with Andies mints. They will melt into a wonderful layer of mint icing. (Quickly putting them in the fridge makes the Andies layer nice and hard. The cold garage works, too.) Note: one small box of mints is not quite enough to cover the whole pan. I am not a *huge* mint fan, but I love these because this way only the icing has the mint flavor, not the whole brownie.

Good lord, those sound good (and expensive…and fattening)!
