Andes Mint cookies

I read over HERE about a recipe for Andes mint choc. chip cookies... I saw them awhile ago... decided NOT to make them because I'd end up eating them ALL... But, now I've decided... I think I'll try em out. And share some with the neighbors... (if there are any left) Don't they look SUPER YUMMY?


3/4 c. butter (or margarine)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 T. water
Melt in a saucepan over medium heat until melted and then add:
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, stirring until completely melted.Cool for 10 minutes.
Pour into a mixing bowl and beat in 2 eggs.

2 1/2 c. four
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. saltMix together and chill for about 45 minutes.

Roll into balls (like 1 - 1 1/2 inches big), flatten slightly, and place on cookie sheet (In only use Pampered Chef baking stones). Bake at 350 for 10 minutes (for my oven, this is the perfect time, keeping my cookies soft; your oven may be slightly different). When cookies come out of the oven, place an Andes mint on top of each cookie and allow to melt for a few minutes. Swirl the melted chocolate like icing. Allow to cool.
