Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 36 Andes Chocolate Mints, unwrapped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars on medium high speed until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  • Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract, scraping down the side of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined. Don’t over mix.
  • Scoop by the rounded tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet, placing the dough balls about 2-inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges but still soft in the center.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and gently press an Andes mint into the center of each cookie. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes or until the mint is soft and melty. Take a butter knife and carefully spread the melted mint over the top of the cookie, leaving a little border. The mint will become the frosting for the cookie.
  • Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely so the chocolate mint frosting can set up.

Notes

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
