Full of creamy chocolate and fresh peppermint flavors this Andes Mint Pie is a fun flavorful and EASY dessert that you must make!
So I’ve been in the no-bake mood lately. Do you know where I’m coming from? Yeah, I prefer desserts lately that are just easy and I really don’t have to turn on the oven because frankly Minnesota has been stuck in what should have been July! So I didn’t really feel much like turning the oven on at that point and making anything hotter than it already was!

I love my no-bake pies! So I figured that I would make this delicious Andes Mint Pie! It is literally like eating the iconic candy but in pie form. Who wouldn’t get excited about that? I know this girl did! That thing was devoured in 2.5 seconds FLAT!
This Andes Mint Pie is such an easy dessert to whip up! It literally takes about 15 minutes to actually get the pie in the crust, then I prefer to let it set up overnight just so you make sure you have that nice silky smooth texture with every single bite. I mean come on now, the wait is worth it friends, I promise.
Oh, and did I mention that there are little bits of Andes candies in the pie! Man, I wouldn’t leave you hanging on that one! Yes, little bits and pieces of the candy are studded throughout the pie so you get a nice texture contrast with every bite as well and boy it is delicious!
Top this bad boy with some whipped topping, more Andes and then drizzle it with chocolate…yeah talk about chocolate mint overload! But for you mint lovers out there you will be happy! This has just the right amount of mint vs. chocolate ratio that is just a nice smooth flavor!
So if you’re thinking it’s that time of year to bust of the mint stuff (which in reality to me is all the time), then this Andes Mint Pie is just the treat to get your taste buds going!
