Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 sticks)
  • 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 40 Unwrapped Andes Mints

Instructions

  • Add the butter and chocolate chips to a small sauce pan, and heat over medium low heat. Stir often until both are completely melted and you can stir them smooth. Set aside to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  • In a large sized bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla extract, and brown sugar until smooth. Set aside.
  • Add the slightly cooled, melted chocolate to the egg mixture, and beat together with a stand mixer or hand mixer.
  • Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, while stirring, until combined.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch sized cookie dough balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. (I like to do rows of 3 across, 4 down.)
  • Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges are set and the tops just start to crack.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 2 minutes.
  • Top each cookie with an unwrapped Andes mint. Let the mint set for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • As the mint melts, use a butter knife to spread the chocolate over the top of each cookie, not quite to the edges.
  • Let the cookies cool until the chocolate on top of them is set.
