Please read my disclosure policy. Thick and chewy Andes Mint Cookies, featuring a rich chocolate base and a smooth, creamy mint chocolate topping. Surprisingly easy to make, the minty magic comes from just one ingredient — an Andes mint! Try our other favorite chocolate and mint pairings, like these Mint Brownies, Mint Oreo Truffles, and Mint Brownie Cookies. Easy, Yet Impressive Cookies! These Andes Mint Cookies look impressive and somehow manage to taste even better! The cookies themselves are soft, chewy, and richly fudgy, topped off with a creaminess from the mint chocolate. I stumbled upon this idea on TikTok and had to try it. Just bake your favorite chocolate cookies, then press an Andes mint on each one right out of the oven. The chocolate softens from the warmth, and when you spread it, it forms the perfect cookie topping. Once it sets, you get this creamy, melt-in-your-mouth experience. They’re a unique and delicious addition to any cookie exchange or dessert table! Andes Mint Cookies Ingredients Chocolate Cookie Dough: Choose a dough that’s rich and fudgy like this Chocolate Cookies recipe. For a shortcut, try these Brownie Cookies which start with a mix! An even faster short-cut: buy pre-made chocolate cookie dough to bake at home. Andes Mints: The key ingredient! They’re readily available in stores, especially during the holidays. Tools Needed For Andes Mint Cookies Butter Knife: For spreading the melted mints. A spatula can work too, but a bit less precise. Silicone Liner: For more even cookie baking. Cooling Rack: Prevents sogginess, helps set chocolate evenly through air circulation. How To Make Andes Mint Cookies (Tips) Chill Dough: If using our homemade cookie recipe, chilling helps cookies hold their shape. Avoid Over-baking: Take cookies out when just set; they’ll harden as they cool. Quick Mint Placement: Add Andes mints just one minute after baking for proper melting. Careful Spreading: Spread the mint after it softens to avoid crumbling. Cool on Sheet: Let cookies sit on the baking sheet a bit before transferring to a rack. Let Chocolate Set: Allow time for the chocolate to firm up at room temperature.

Video Recipe NotesAllowing the chocolate to harden at room temperature is preferred because it maintains a smoother texture, preserves the flavor, prevents moisture-related issues, and avoids condensation that can occur in the fridge. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days to maintain their freshness and texture.
