Andes Creme De Menthe Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are not just delicious, but they leave your mouth minty and refreshed. I can’t think of a better reason to eat cookies, can you?

In a large bowl add the brown sugar,

shortening, water and vanilla extract.

Stir until combined and creamy.

Add the eggs and stir until

combined thoroughly.

In a small bowl whisk together the

flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the

dough and stir to combine.

Add the entire bag of Andes

Creme De Menthe baking chips.

Toss, coating all of the

baking chips with dough.

Place rounded tablespoons of dough

on an ungreased cookie sheet 2” apart.

Bake in a preheated 375º oven one

pan at a time, on the center rack,

for approximately 9-13 minutes,

my oven took 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and leave the

cookies on the pan for 1 minute until

set then remove to a cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container.

    • Thank you! I didn’t know they did either. I never go grocery shopping because my husband loves it and I hate it. However, I wasn’t sure what candy I wanted for my melted snowmen so I went along this one time. That’s when I saw them and thought, chocolate cookies and mint! Merry Christmas ❤️

  1. I know Santa would love these Diane – he and the reindeer are probably living on pizza to get them through the long Christmas Eve journey and they need a sweet treat right about now. I just checked and Santa and the reindeer are in Africa. These look delicious and I like those candies – I must get myself together … I did no decorating and used to put out candy dishes and treats at work and home. I’ve not had Andes Mints in ever so long.
