Love these! These have become one of my "go-to" cookies for Christmas (and, well, for any time). Just realized I've made them multiple times without reviewing!
This past Christmas I made them but couldn't find the Andes (bulk or namebrand) chocolates ANYWHERE... except in the gourmet section where they were handmade in little baggies and SUPER expensive. So I used mint-chocolate-chips and they are NOT the same. Ok, but definitely lacking. Before I moved to Ontario, I used to be able to find the bulk-style (in BC) at many different grocery stores... so not sure if it's a regional thing? Anyway, if you can get the Andes-style chocolates, USE them, it's worth the difference. Next time I might even cave and buy the gourmet ones if it's for something really special. These also make a great chocolate cookie "base" (try other additives - crushed candy cane, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips or skor/heath bar bits etc). I used them for "ears" on monkey cupcakes and they were a hit. Definitely a recipe I've used over and over and over again!
