Each warm cookie is topped with an Andes Mint, which melts into minty chocolate frosting.
Why This Recipe Works
For a play on one of our favorite treats, Andes chocolate mints, we turned to the candy itself to make our cookies rich and decadent. Our chewy chocolate cookie base relies on quick-melting chocolate chips for flavor and moisture. After removing the cookies from the oven, we top each one with an Andes mint while still warm. The residual heat melts the candy, turning it into a spreadable “frosting” to coat each cookie. After setting up, they’re a perfect fusion of cookie and candy.
