Ingredients

  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 40 to 45 mint Andes candies
  • 6 ounces pink candy coating disks*
  • Heart-shaped decorating sprinkles, optional

Directions

Prepare the cookie dough according to package directions. Cover and chill for 15-20 minutes or until easy to handle. Pat a scant tablespoonful of dough in a thin layer around each mint candy. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Top with decorating sprinkles if desired. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: White candy coating tinted with red food coloring may be substituted for the pink candy coating.
