chocolate-mint layer candies (such as Andes®), unwrapped, divided
In my best devilish and descriptive tone on how I feel about these cookies......Austin Powers "yeahhhh bae-bee!!" geez, I'm in love! While I followed everything to a T, 42 portions in this dough are too big & after about 4 hours in the fridge, still slightly sticky (use a little extra flour to douse each portion when wrapping the candies in them). That's the only negative thing I have to say about it. Other then that, I bought 2 (8.5oz) bags of Andes Mint Chocolate candy to make sure I had enough as the recipe stated, however, I thought I was even being liberal with the dough making sure the cookies were perfectly wrapped as possible. My dough worked out giving me 56 little cookies and still had plenty of leftover candies from the 2nd bag I bought to make the drizzle with. I found that next day, the cookies were still crisp but not hard bricks and that's a plus in my book. I will note that if you don't drizzle the cookies, you can pop them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to have the centers extra gooey and become a mint cookie addict. I will be making these again at St. Patrick's Day and at Christmas because they sure are worth being a repeat offender in my house. TY so much. Another added note is, when I melted the leftover chocolate mint candies, it seizes in the melting process, so add a tsp of shortening to loosen it up or a little more if needed to drizzle beautiful trails of minty goodness over the top.
