Who else loves popping a chocolate covered mint in their mouth after dinner?

Honestly, I think a few freshly unwrapped Andes mints would make a great dessert! But it’s even better when they are in cookies.

  • Easy to make with a handful of ingredients.
  • Fold Andes mints into a simple cookie dough before baking.
  • Perfect balance of rich chocolate and cool mint flavor.

For this recipe, I took those candies with creamy mint filling and added them to a basic buttery cookie dough. The result is a thin, crispy cookie bursting with chocolate mint flavor.

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make Andes Mint Cookies.

Reminder

Scroll to the end of the blog post for a complete printable list of ingredients, measurements, and directions.

  • Butter. Butter is the base of our cookies, it adds richness and moisture. I use salted for this recipe, but use whatever you have on hand.
  • Sugar- I like using brown sugar in this recipe because it creates a chewy cookie.
  • Vanilla. Pure vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the chocolate and mint. Use our homemade vanilla extract for delicious results.
  • All purpose flour. Flour gives our cookies structure. These are a thin and crisp cookie. If you prefer a thicker and chewier cookie,
    increase the amount of flour to 1 ½ cups.
  • Baking soda. This helps ensure the cookies stay soft without rising too much.
  • Andes candies. Chopped andes mints are our filling of choice in these cookies! You can occasionally find a bag of the chopped Andes in your baking aisle, otherwise chop them up yourself. Or swap them out for peppermint patties!

How to Make Andes Mint Cookies

  • Chill the dough for 30 minutes. If you need to chill it longer, just know that you’ll have to let the cookie dough sit out a little bit to get soft again before scooping.
  • Make sure to space each ball of cookie dough at least 3 inches apart. These cookies will spread!
  • Sprinkle a pinch of flaked sea salt on the top of each cookie immediately after baking. These amazing Caramel Cookies will remind you of them.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking tray. They will continue to set as they cool to room temperature.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy within 5 days. In my house, they disappear long before then.
  • Freeze Cookies. Use my tips on how to freeze cookie dough for later.
