Chunky Andes Mint Cookies -Small Batch

I had six lonely mints sitting in the candy dish and decided to make a mini batch of Chunky Andes Mint Cookies. These chocolates with a minty green center make a great St. Patrick's Day treat. You can try the small batch recipe below or use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and just add more mints. I used a cookie scoop and the recipe below gave me five 3" cookies. I'm looking forward to my coffee break today:@)

I cut my mints in half long ways then into 8 pieces, I'd make them even chunkier by cutting them into six pieces next time.

Chunky Andes Mint Cookies -Small Batch-adapted from No. 2 Pencil

Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)

  2. What a great idea! I wonder if you could freeze these if you made a big batch? I have a friend that makes and freezes cookies all the time...
