Andes Mint Cookies

Looking at this cookie for the first time in the middle of a crowded table full of other treats, I didn’t give it a second look. A chocolate on chocolate cookie wasn’t my thing, so I skipped to others. Then a friend told me I had to try it. They were Andes mint cookies, chocolate cookies with Andes mints swirled on top.  I gave them a chance and I immediately fell in love.  Since then, I have made these Andes mint cookies over 100 times.   Now a family staple around our home, we keep the 5 ingredients on hand, just in case the need for a cookie arises.

I had so much fun taking pictures of these that I thought I’d share a bunch so you can all drool all over your computer screens!  After un-wrapping the mints, place them on the warm cookie. Let them sit one minute, then they are spreadable.  Look at this oozing melted chocolate!

After cooking, place Andes mints on top (or the chopped up version).
