"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 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."

"What a simple and yummy treat!! I made these for a cookie exchange and they were so tasty!! Very easy to make. I used more cookie crumbs than the recipe called for to give them a little extra crunch. Delicious!!"

"I made these for a girls get-together. Our theme was pink for Cancer and I tinted them pink instead of green. Turned out great, I am making them for Christmas."

"TIP: Before melting almond bark if you grate it using a food processor like cheese before hand, it makes the melting easier and quicker."

" The white candy coating I use for most recipes is called "almond bark" although as far as I know it has nothing to do with almonds! There is also a chocolate variety appropriately called "chocolate bark". They both come as connected squares in the package. I suppose you could also use white chocolate chips. "

"These were so easy to make... and really taste terrific. A special thank you to the test kitchen for the recipe. I could only get 34 cookies out of the recipe though. No problem with that however !"
