Instructions:

  1. prepare and bake the cake mix in a 9×13 baking dish. Allow to cool completely.
  2. use a wooden spoon to poke holes evenly into the cake about 20 holes.  Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake, filling the holes.
  3. heat the hot fudge sauce in a small bowl  in the microwave for about 40 seconds.  You just want to soften it.
  4. crumble half the cookies into the hot fudge sauce and mix. Spread the cookie/fudge mix over the cake.
  5. in a large bowl, whisk together the cool whip and cap full of mint extract together, then add 3 drops of green food coloring for color.  Spread the whipped topping over the fudge layer.
  6. crumble the remaining cookies over the cool whip.  Sprinkle the Andes Mint chips over the top.
  7. refrigerate and chill for at least 4 hours (overnight is best)
  8. cut and serve. Serves 12-15.
