These Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups are little bites of heaven. A soft, chocolate cookie with an Andes mint stuffed in the middle is topped with mint buttercream and a chocolate drizzle. They were devoured by all.

It’s a good thing, because they are totally irresistible. I needed more of them. I didn’t get to share them with everyone that I wanted to because they just totally disappeared!

Our small group devoured them. It was a good thing I left a few behind for the hubs. I barely got any! I couldn’t believe it.

You should probably double the batch.

  5. Grease a mini muffin tin.
  6. Make balls of about 2 large tsp in size and press into the bottom of each mini muffin cup.
  7. Press the center down just a bit to make an indention, where you'll add the Andes mints later.
  8. You want each cup to only be about 3/4 full.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
  10. While cookies are baking, unwrap the Andes mints and break them all in half.
  11. Remove cookies from oven (the centers may look a little undone, but they will cook more as they sit).
  12. Press two halves of an Andes mint into the center of each of the cookie cups.
  13. Allow to cool for 3-4 minutes in the muffin tin. The mints will start to melt.
