These are chewy chocolate mint cookies with a mint wafer on the top. A beautiful design is swirled into the top of the candy while the cookies are hot.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, water and mint chocolate chips. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
  2. Beat the eggs into the chocolate mixture one at a time. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the chocolate mixture. Cover dough, and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place 1 1/2 inches apart onto an unprepared cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 12 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. As soon as the cookies are out of the oven, place 1/2 of a mint candy on top of each one. Let sit for 30 seconds, then swirl with a toothpick. Cool on wire racks.

truly scrumptious! I didn't have mint chocolate chips so used plain choc. chips and the recipie was still a HIT. When I ran out of mints I just made plain unadorned cookies rolled the dough in powdered sugar before baking and those were gobbled up too. This is a keeper! Thank you!

Definately 5 stars for this recipe! It's just what I was looking for, a thin wafer cookie. Walmart had Andes Creme De Menthe baking chips and they were awesome. Followed the recipe to a T except I didn't have any chips left over to melt on top, didn't need it anyway. And by the way, 1 3/4 c chips was a 10 oz package. Watch your baking time since they're so thin they bake quickly. They're going to be a perfect addition to my Christmas baskets this year and years to come. Thanks for this recipe!

My husband loves these cookies. They have turned out each time with a crispy outer ridge and a chewy, soft center. It was a hit with the kids as well.
