My aunt and I always bake cookies together for major events, and this particular recipe is one of our favorites! Give em a try and find yourself in love with the minty-chocolate taste! 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Cup – Butter (Softened Preferably)
  • 1 Cup – Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup – Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 & 1/2 TSP – Vanilla
  • 3 Cups – Flour 
  • 1 TSP – Baking Powder
  • 1/2 TSP – Salt
  • 1 Package of Andes Mints (Set aside 42)

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 375 Degrees
  • Mix together the butter and sugar (White & Brown) until smooth.  Add in the eggs and vanilla, and mix it well.   Add in the Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt and Mix.  
  • Refrigerate it for 2+ hours (it’s a soft mixture and needs to harden until you can mess with it.  
  • Unwrap the 42 Candies while waiting.
  • Now take the dough and form 1 TBSP of dough around each candy.  
  • Bake 10-12 minutes each.
  • Remove and set on wire racks over top of wax paper.

TOPPING

Use a Saucepan and put the remaining candies in. Melt them and then drizzle the chocolate over the cookies. The wax paper should catch the extras. If necessary, add them back into the pan and re-heat for more chocolate.

ENJOY
