Reviews for Mint Cookie Candies
"These are super yummy...but I had to improvise. You can't get Andes candies in Canada, so I used peppermint oil in regular (well, it was still good quality) chocolate. Except that I found them in the Christmas candy aisle for the first time. But now you can't get green cream in the cream filled cookies; but you can them in pink cream from a different brand. It's all good..."
"these are great! I use Andes baking bits instead of the full mints."
"These were very easy to make. I used wilton cand melts, melted with shortening in the microwave. Then I added the green coloring. It worked great. No problems. \i would make these again."
"Don't know what happened, but the white chocolate got lumpy and the butter separated. What a mess, and it did it twice with the same results"
"This is such a great cookie idea! I use Andes mint baking chips for the chocolate part and top it with a green baking chip in the middle."
