I've made these many times and they are so good and very easy. You can color the white candy to any color depending on the holiday or the event. Everyone loves them! Thanks for a great recipe!

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.

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.
