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?

  1. These cookies taste great, but the dough is really dry and soo hard to work with. I made these once and wouldn’t make them again except that someone requested I make them again! So here I am remembering how hard it is to mix the Andes mint chips into the dry dough.

    • Hi Kristen,
      It sounds like the dough may be over floured. I would take out a 1/4 and slowly add more if the dough is too wet. Unfortunately everyone measures a little differently so over flouring can happen. Also, make sure you use large eggs as medium will lead to a dry dough. 🙂 Best of luck and feel free to email if you have questions

  2. These look delish! I love chocolate & mint together.

    Question: Does Ts = Tablespoon or Teaspoon?

    Would hate to mix those up :-/

    Thanks!!
