These were TOO good!! I used 2 cups AP flour 1/2 wheat (I try to sneak it in when I can). Turned out great, almost brownie like. My kind of cookie! We only had Andes Crème de Menthe chips on hand, so I used those which took a little more work. I'm definitely going to use the regular mint candies and upping it to a whole one instead of half. The more gooey mint, the better! I've always made the recipe from the back of the Andes Chips for Christmas, but am replacing it with this from now on. My 2 daughters both rate this as "Awesome". Thank you so much for posting this gem!

Changed the water to chocolate syrup and added 10 oz dark chocolate & mint chips instead of 12 oz semi-sweet. Great cookies without the mint candy topping.

Thank God you posted this recipe. I lost my copy and these are a family holiday favorite. We use a whole mint for each cookie and swirl with a toothpick to get a pretty marbled look. They all go down the same, though. YUMMY!!!!

My oldest son really likes mint flavored things so I made these for a party w/him in mind. Well, he wasnt the only one who loves these. They were much easier to make than they sounded. Will make these anytime I see Andes candies on sale.

Thank you! This is possibly my new FAVORITE cookie! I love the brownie-like chewiness. I used the Andes bits (and didn't spread it). It was probably more difficult, but I have a delicious, attractive outcome. (I'm posting a picture.) After allowing the cookies to cool on the rack, I put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to make sure the Andes bits were hardened before packing the up. Voila!

Oh so good! Generally, I don't love mint but these cookies are outstanding. Getting ready to make my second batch. First batch made approx 50 cookies. I used almost two full boxes of mints because some cookies were so large that I used a full mint instead of 1/2 a mint.
These would make wonderful gifts!

These are very, very nice. We had to make them 3 times in a row, and my 11 year old kept complaining that I was eating up all his cookies. I've been looking at the reviews where they say to use a whole candy, and we haven't done that yet, but I might be tempted. Happy holidays and thanks for the recipe!

These are wonderful, but for a little variety, Andes now makes their mints in cherry flavor as well. I put half of the mint flavor and half of the cherry flavor on cookies for each batch. Try it!

OK, these are my new favorite cookie! Delicious! I only chilled the dough for about 30 minutes and they turned out fine. So, so good. Thanks!
