These cookies have Andes mints tucked inside them, plus melted chocolate on top...sometimes I also add a bit of cocoa to the dough to make double chocolate cookies. Cooking time includes 2 hours for chilling dough. ZWT 3: U.S. (Andes mints)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Beat in vanilla.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, and gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  3. With floured hands, shape tablespoons of dough around 42 candies (you will have rectangular cookies).
  4. Place cookies 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  5. In a saucepan or microwave, melt remaining candies and drizzle over tops of cookies.
