These Andes Mint Cookies have long been a family favorite.  The easy, 5 ingredient cookie recipe makes a delicious chocolate cookie with a melted Andes mint chocolate frosting.


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!

I watned to share the simple recipe for these delicious Andes mint chocolate cookies with my online friends.  Just add a few eggs  and oil to a cake mix and you have a dense cookie dough.  Throw in some chocolate chips and form a ball. After cooking, place Andes mints on top (or the chopped up version).

Andes Mint Cookies

Here is the official recipe:

Chocolate Andes Mint Cookies

1 pkg. devils food cake mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup milk chocolate chips
36 Andes Mints (or buy the bag of Andes candy pieces by the chocolate chips)

Mix cake mix, eggs, and oil together. Batter will be thick. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by te4aspoolnfuls on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes, until tops of cookies just “crack.” Do not overcook! Remove cookies from oven and either place a mint or a spoonful of mint pieces atop each cookie. When candy is softened, swirl gently with knife. Cool completely to set candy (put them in the fridge for quick setting).

You can enjoy the Andes mint cookies warm or, my favorite, chill them until they are cold in the fridge and the Andes mint chocolate has hardened.

    These look great! I will have to try them. Have you heard there is a shortage of pumpkin? I have not been able to buy any in the grocery stores here in Henderson, Nevada. Hopefully you do not have the same problem when you get your recipe for pumpkin roll.
