  1. In a large pan over low heat, cook butter, sugar and water until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips and stir until partially melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until chocolate is completely melted. Pour into a large bowl and let stand 10 minutes to cool off slightly.
  2. At high speed, beat in eggs, one at a time into chocolate mixture. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients, beating until blended. Chill dough about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Roll dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes. While cookies are baking unwrap mints and divide each in half. When cookies are brought out of the oven, put 1/2 mint on top of each cookie. Let the mint sit for up to 5 minutes until melted, then spread the mint on top of the cookie. Eat and enjoy!

This makes a great cookie! The only problem is waiting to let the Mints melt then letting them cool To where the chocolate hardens on top so you can stack them. To help this along I put then in...

This is one of those stand alone cookies where the cookie itself is out of this world. The mint just gives it just the right elegant touch that you can serve it to the girls when they come over...

I make these every year, everyone goes nuts about them. If you can't find the green Andes mints, use the black ones and add green sprinkles. A half mint is about the right size for the size coo...
