  2. Pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and beat in the eggs, one at a time. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll cookie dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, be careful not to overbake. When cookies come out of the oven, Press one mint wafer into the top of each cookie and let sit for 1 minute. When the mint is softened, swirl with the back of a spoon or toothpick to make a pattern with the green filling of the mint wafer. For smaller cookies, break mints in half.

These are great! Pretty easy too. I didn't have regular Andes mints, just Andes mints baking chips, so I mixed them into the dough before baking. I set some aside and sprinkled them on top of...

Great cookie! I used only half an Andes mint chocolate on every small and larger cookie - a whole piece was too messy. I also waited a good few minutes before I placed the candy on the cooki...

I won first prize at a cookie exchange for these cookies! I baked a lot of extra to freeze and take to different holiday functions and they were always a big hit.

after the first batch, I realized the cookies were more like brownies, so used mini muffin tins and they were such a hit!!! I also used Peppermint Patties, which were messy to spread, but turned...

These cookies were AMAZING. They were gone within two days! I was a bit hesitant to make them, since the recipe seemed a bit complicated for me, but it actually wasn't hard. I was worried for...
