I got this recipe from the newspaper 30 years ago but it is still a family favorite. Not the easiest to make but well worth the effort!

Ingredients

2/3 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1
egg
6 oz
chocolate chips, melted
1/4 c
light corn syrup
1 3/4 c
flour
2 tsp

1/4 tsp

50-60
andes creme de menthe mint wafers, halved

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine butter, sugar, and egg in a large mixing bowl and beat until light and creamy. Blend in melted chocolate chips and corn syrup.
2
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into chocolate mixture. Chill several hours or overnight.
3
Using rounded 1/4 teaspoon of dough, shape into a ball and roll in granulated sugar. Repeat for all dough and place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove each batch from oven and let stand just a few seconds. DO NOT COOL. Turn half of each batch upside down and top with a mint candy half. Top with a second cookie. Place in the freezer on a flat tray or cookie sheet to harden.

HINT: This dough becomes sticky and hard to manage at room temperature. Return remaining dough to the refrigerator between batches.
