Chocolate Mint Candy Cookies: 

Picture off of Google. I haven't made this recipe recently, but trust me, these cookies are beautiful!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (substitution: whole wheat flour or 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour + 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 sticks of room temperature butter (or 16 tbsp fat-free sour cream or buttery spread or any type of oil (except olive oil))
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar (you can use packed brown sugar)
  • 2 eggs (you can use 3 egg whites or 1/2 cup of thoroughly blended silken tofu)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp water or milk
  • 2 cups of Andes mints (chopped into about fourths) or other chocolate-mint candy (If you don’t want mint, you can use any type of chocolate chip or other type of chip. Also, you can skip this ingredient all together!  The cookies will still be great!)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Mix together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and water in a large bowl.  Sift in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt and mix in well.
  • Fold in Andes mints.
  • Roll into two-tablespoon sized balls and place on greased [or nonstick] pan, at least two inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Once done, let them stand on the pan for 1-2 minutes so they firm up and don’t break easily.
