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.

The recipe for these cookies is so easy!  And there are only 5 ingredients.  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).

Once the mints have melted, use a knife to spread the softened candy on the top of the cookie like frosting.

Let the cookies cool until the chocolate has firmed.  You can speed this up by putting them in the fridge.  Then enjoy!
