  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (4.67 ounces each) mint Andes candies, halved


  1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and water; cook over low heat until butter is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in chips until melted.
  2. Transfer to a large bowl; cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  3. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until surface cracks. Remove to wire racks. Immediately place half of a mint candy on each cookie. Let stand until candy begins to melt; spread with a knife.
