Andes Chocolate Mint Cookies

Andes Chocolate Mint Cookies are scrumptious and delightful. Are you ready for another cookie that combines chocolate and mint? I know that not everyone enjoys mint, but I love mint, especially when it’s combined with chocolate. Andes Chocolate Mint Cookies are made with my Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe cookie dough. Instead of using chocolate chips, however, I used Andes creme de menthe baking chips. Because this basic recipe calls for 50% more chocolate chips than most recipes, I used a full bag and a half of Andes baking chips. The outcome? There’s lots of chocolaty, minty flavor in these delicious cookies.

John asked me to bake up some cookies for some friends he was visiting a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would try this favorite recipe and use up some extra baking chips leftover from Christmas. I love tweaking good recipes. I also used this same basic cookie dough and made up a batch of Mrs. Field’s White Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe. Those cookies were also amazing. The one has a lovely white chocolate taste, and this one has a lovely chocolate mint taste.

These scrumptious cookies remind me of eating Andes chocolate mints as a kid. When I was a young girl I used to dust a women’s house down the street every Saturday morning. I would earn about a $1.00 or so a week and spend almost every cent of that money on candy! Andes Chocolate Mints were one of those candies I used to gobble down by the mouthful.

If you enjoy chocolate and mint in desserts, then give these delectable cookies a try. But be prepared to gobble down more than a few!

    These are awesome cookies! Crisp and chewy at the same time. I couldn’t find the Andes chips so i bought the candies and cut them up. Used 3 boxes 2 definitely would have been enough! After cutting up the candies I put them in the fridge till I was ready for them so they would hold their shape when incorporated into the dough. Worked like a charm. Cookies are awesome thank you for the recipe!

      Thanks so much, Melinda. I love the idea of making them with the real candies. I actually had some on hand and should have tried that too! Thanks for letting me know how well they turned out.
