Christmas is never complete until you add the chocolate andes mint cookies! And if you’re looking for a fun twist make sure you try adding chocolate chips!

These chocolate andes mint cookies are a cinch to make, and while you may have already been sold on the peppermint chip cookies I think you would be wise to give these puppies a try.
They totally remind me of those famous Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, but as a soft cookie with mint chips instead of that chocolate dipped cookie.
You know what would really be good? Now that I’m thinking about it, and of course all of the cookies are already gone which means I’ll have to make a whole new batch, which is not something I’m complaining about! Anyway, it would be really good to bake these for a minute extra so they aren’t burned but they are a little extra crisp and then dip them in hot cocoa! Oh, what?! Booyah!

Our oldest daughter and Cade would especially be all over that. They both love cocoa and toast. As in actually dipping the toast in the hot cocoa. I do not like it. I love an oreo dipped in milk, but toast? Gross. Tell me, are you into dipping things?

Where to Buy Andes Mints

You can buy already chopped Andes Mint pieces in the baking section by the chocolate chips but they are often only found during the holidays.

If you can’t find the baking pieces, like I couldn’t this last time just buy Andes Mint chocolates in the candy section and let your kids break them into little bits.

Can Chocolate Cookies Be Frozen?

Most cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Place cooled cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze.

When the cookies are frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or a heavy duty freezer bag.

How Long Will Cookies Keep At Room Temperature?

Cookies will keep for 3-5 days at room temperature.

Cookies should be kept in an airtight container or a plastic bag.

Tips!

Baking on a Silpat will help whenever you have chocolate involved as it will make for an even bake on the bottom of the cookie and keep the chocolate from burning on the pan.

Adding a few pieces of Andes Mint to the tops of the cookies right after baking will make them look more professional and pump up the flavor!
