My Awesome Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Mint Marvels


3/4C butter
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 C chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 1/2 C flour
1 1/4 t baking soda
3 or 4 packages Andes Mints (I used 1 package and broke the mints in half)


Melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan over low heat. Add chocolate chips and stir to melt; put mixture into a bowl and let cool. Add eggs, and then mix in flour and baking soda. Chill dough for 1 hour. Roll into balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove cookies from oven and place an andes mint on each one. As the candy melts spread it across the top of the cookie with a butter knife. Makes 3 dozen.

**I made these cookies last year too, but this year I had a heck of a time with the batter sticking to my hands. In the end, I actually had to put the dough in the freezer to work with it a little better, so it is very important that you have it cooled before you start molding the balls.
