Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

I can’t believe it’s the last day of Christmas Cookie Week 2018! It’s been such an amazing week with our awesome sponsors – Silpat, Adam’s Extracts, YumGoggle and Sprinkle Pop.

They provided us with some great products to use to make our favorite cookie recipes and they are offering some amazing prizes in a giveaway.

These Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies wouldn’t be as great as they are, without the addition of Adam’s Extracts Peppermint.

A BIG, HUGE shout out to Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventure for the amazing job they did putting this all together and keeping up with it all week.

I’m sad to see it end, but there have been some pretty incredible recipes shared this week. Have you seen them?

Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

I’ve baked so many dozens of cookies already this month, some for Cookie Week and some just because I love to bestow them upon our friends, family and our local police department.

These Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies have been a huge hit so far and have been requested several times. They are probably one of our absolute favorites of the holiday season.

But don’t mistake these Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies for Christmas cookies. They are amazing any time of year! 

Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

They are perfectly minty and chocolaty. From the inside out. And those melted Andes Mint halves on each cookie? Incredible and they add something extra special.

These remind me of a cross between a crinkle cookie, and a thumbprint cookie, soft and moist. A little chewy, but not too chewy.

If they do seem to get a little harder after a day or so, simply pop them into the microwave for 10-15 seconds and you will have melty, soft chocolaty good Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies!

While I prefer to make these Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies fresh, they do freeze well.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar together. Add eggs and Adam's Peppermint Extract and beat everything until light and fluffy, scraping the sides often.
  • In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder until combined well.
  • Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Gently fold in the Andres Creme De Menthe Baking Chips,
  • Create dough balls about 1" or so. Place about 1 ½" apart on a silpat lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. The top will probably still look soft looking.
  • Break apart a Andes Creme de Menthe After-Diner Mint and gently press one half into the top of each cookie. Pressing very gently.
  • Allow cookies to cool about 5 minutes or so on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • These store in an airtight container for several days, freeze really well for a few weeks and to serve with deliciously melty chocolate, zap in microwave about 10-15 seconds.
