Directions

  1. In heavy small saucepan over low heat, heat chocolate chips, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth.
  2. Pour melted chocolate into bowl and add flour, butter, corn syrup, baking soda, salt, egg and 1/2 cup sugar. Mix with electric mixer at low speed until blended. Increase speed to medium; beat until well mixed, scraping bowl frequently with rubber spatula.
  3. Wrap dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate until easy to handle, about 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  5. Measure 1/3 cup sugar into small bowl. Shape dough into 96 balls; roll balls in sugar to coat. Place in even number of balls, about 2 inches apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet.
  6. Bake cookies 12 to 15 minutes until set. Immediately remove half of cookies from cookie sheet and invert onto work surface. While still hot, place chocolate-covered mint patties on remaining cookies, top side up. Press cookies together slightly so mint patty spreads out to cookie edges as it melts. With pancake turner, remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Repeat with remaining dough and mints.

I don't know how it is possible to make 96 dough balls from this recipe, but it is still delicious! Mine made about 76. Also 12-15 minutes is way too long to bake for. I did about 7-8 minutes.

I only got 32 cookies (that's 64 halves) out of this recipe. Perhaps I'm using the wrong size of mints? I was using the York peppermint patties, in the Christmas wrapping, about 1.5" in diameter...

Whenever I make these everyone thinks I'm so clever but they are so easy!

I does make 96 cookies. You just have to make small balls. I used my smallest cookie scoop and then cut them in half. They bake up to the perfect size to put the peppermint patty in and then pre...

These are amazing holiday sandwich cookies! The cookies are a delightful combination of crisp, chocolatey, soft and gooey. Baking these is a bit harder than I expected. I ruined about a dozen b...

excellent cookie! i used a small cookie scoop to measure each cookie. after spooning out cookies i cut each ball in half the rolled in sugar. this made the cookie just the right size for the pep...

These are only ok. The only mint peppermint patties I found are, in my opinion, too thick. So, I made some mint cream cheese frosting & put that in the middle instead, which was better, but no...

I only made a half of a batch after reading the others reviews, and wish I made a whole batch. They looked just like the picture! I wonder if that whole egg made a difference instead of a half? ...
