Andes candies cookies taste just like the classic mints but in cookie form. This is an easy cookie recipe and each soft chocolate cookie has mint chocolate pieces baked inside.
I love Andes mints and always get excited when they are offered as an after-dinner mint at restaurants or left on your pillow at hotels. So, of course, I wanted to make chocolate mint cookies with them. Chocolate and mint is the perfect combination.
These Andies candies cookies taste just like the mints but in cookie form. DH absolutely loves these chocolate mint cookies and hordes them whenever I make a batch.
For these cookies you can just chop up whole Andes mints or, if you can find them, you can use the Andes candies baking chips.
I think I prefer chopping my own because they’re not as chalky, but using the baking chips definitely saves time.
- Softened unsalted butter
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Andes candies baking chips or chopped Andes mints
First, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl in between each egg. Mix in the cocoa powder and mix until well blended.
Add the flour, salt and baking powder and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate mint chips.
Scoop about two tablespoons of dough to form each cookie. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Space them about two-inches apart. Bake the cooking for 11 to 14 minutes.
Cool the cookies completely. They will keep well in an airtight container for a few days at room temperature.
These are really tasty cookies. A soft chocolate cookie with Andes mint pieces scattered throughout. DH likes to pop them in the microwave before eating them so they’re warm and toasty as if they just came out of the oven.
