How to Make Green Mint Chip Cookies
If you can find Andes Crème de Menthe baking chips they work best. If you cannot find them at your local grocery store you can still make this recipe by breaking up Andes candies.
To break up Andes Crème de Menthe candies , unwrap COLD candies, place in a plastic bag, and pound them with a heavy object, breaking them into small pieces.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg in a bowl. Stir until soft dough forms. Stir in broken up ANdes candies and chocolate chunks. Form small balls of dough, about 2 inch in diameter, and place them 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 3 minutes. Store tightly covered at room temperature
