If you like chocolate and mint, you can't help but love these delicious crispy cookies with their creamy icing. We always make them for the holidays ... and guests can never seem to eat just one!
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + standing
  • Makes
    6-1/2 dozen


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


  • In a heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and water. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted.
  • Transfer to a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. With mixer on high speed, add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to chocolate mixture, beating on low until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • Roll dough into 1-in. balls. Place 3 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 11-13 minutes or until edges are set and tops are puffed and cracked (cookies will become crisp after cooling).
  • Immediately top each cookie with a mint. Let stand for 1-2 minutes; spread over cookie. Remove to wire racks; let stand until chocolate is set and cookies are cooled.

    I made this for my family, and I didn't even have to melt the candies on top, and they wouldn't leave them alone!

    These are delicious cookies, popular with everyone. I have a question, though. Have you other bakers noticed this cookie gets a little flat, or did I do something wrong?

    Although these are tasty now that they are done, I made them exactly as the recipes directs except I made a double batch in my KitchenAid mixer and refrigerated it overnight with the lid on. Oh my, it was like concrete when I got it out the next day to make them. Had to have my boyfriend chip the batter in chunks in order for me to work with it. What did I do wrong?!

    Nice crispy cookie, everyone loved the mint flavor. Certainly made the "hit" list for the 2012 Christmas. Definite do-over:)
