Chocolate Mint Creams

Description

I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Book. "Cookies For Christmas" These taste like little mint frosted brownies. I make them every year at Christmas. It's the only time I can find the mints. They have always been a big hit with company but nobody wants to make them because they look to hard. They are surprisingly easy and very tasty. The first ones gone on a cookie tray. I use Allan Misty mints but you can use any pastel mints. The recipe program wouldn't let me add them to the ingredient list.

  • 1 1⁄4 all-purpose flour

  • 2⁄3 brown sugar


  • 6 butter


  • 1 water


  • 1cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Stir together flour and baking soda and set aside.

  • Pour into mixing bowl and let stand to cool for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Chill for 2 hours, any more and the dough will be too firm.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball.
  • Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for 8 minutes.
  • Top each cookie with a mint (I use 2 because I can only find small mints) and return to oven for 2 more minutes. The program wouldn't let me put theses into the recipe.
  • Remove from oven and swirl the soft mints like frosting.
  • Place on cookie racks until the mints firm.
