TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. + cooling
MAKES: 24 servings


  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 12 drops food coloring
  • 24 Andes mint candies
  • Black and white jimmies
  • Decorating icing and candy eyeballs, optional


  1. Mix cookie mix and flour; stir in melted butter, egg, extracts and food coloring until blended. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a 1-in.-thick square; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to an 8x6-in. rectangle. Cut each rectangle into twelve 2-in. squares. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake until edges begin to brown, 7-9 minutes. Remove from oven; place a mint candy at the top of each square. Return to oven; bake until chocolate begins to melt, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Using a spatula, spread mint candies to cover top end of cookies; sprinkle with jimmies for hair. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate faces as desired, using icing and eyeballs. Yield: 2 dozen.
