Andes Mint Cookies

If you have not tried these cookies, you just have to this week! They'll be the perfect Christmas treat for everyone in your family. I found the recipe here, and I'm so glad I did. I made them for our church's Christmas party last night and they were a big hit.:)

Andes Mint Cookies

3/4 cup butter
1-1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 (12 ounce) package of chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)
2 eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag or 2 boxes of Andes Mint candies

Melt butter, brown sugar, water, and chocolate chips slowly in a pan. Pour into mixing bowl and add eggs, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together well. Refrigerated dough for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees after refrigerating dough. Line cookie sheet with foil and place dough in round spoonfuls. Bake for 8-12 minutes (depending on your oven and if you like them a bit gooey!). Immediately after removing from the oven, place and Andes Mint on each cookie. Allow it to melt for a minute or so, then spread the mint over the top of each cookie with a knife.

Enjoy! (You will not stop at one, I guarantee it!)

Next up...our church's Christmas celebration!
