42 cookies


  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 65 chocolate-mint layer candies (such as Andes®), unwrapped, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.

  2. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract.

  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture until dough is just-combined. Transfer dough to a resealable plastic bag, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag. Refrigerate until dough firms, at least 2 hours.

  4. Divide dough into 42 portions and wrap 1 dough portion around 1 mint. Repeat with remaining dough portions. Place dough 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheets.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are golden, 10 to 12 minutes.

  6. Melt remaining chocolate mint candies in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes. Drizzle melted mint chocolate over cookies.
