Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Andes candy has always been a Holiday favorite of mine. When I was a child my mom kept a bowl of them in the living room during the holiday season, and I always loved to sneak into the room and grab some of the green foil packets!  

So naturally now that I am older I like to use the candy in cookies for Christmas.  I have made this before by cutting up the Andes mints, but this year I noticed you can now buy bags of the Creme De Menthe candy for baking.  That is much easier than cutting up a bunch of them!

This recipe is similar to chocolate chocolate chip cookies, only with the Creme de Menthe flavor.  You could also just use mint chips in this recipe, which I have done before too.  The dough for these cookies is stiff, so you can roll it into balls, which gives the cookies a nice round shape.

These freeze well, so these are a good Christmas cookie to make before the holiday and freeze.  My kids love the minty flavor, and have even been known to eat them right out of the freezer!

Cookies Make the Perfect Gift

I love to share homemade cookies with my friends and family! Food is a great way to bring people together during the holiday season, either in person or from a distance.

Why not bake some cookies this year and put together a cookie gift box for your friends? Here are some cookie recipe ideas for gift giving!

  1. My daughter, who is in the military and stationed in the UK right now, LOVES Andes mints, and loves double chocolate chip cookies. She has a few holiday parties she’s been asked to bring things to and I’m going to send this post to her. I wish I liked chocolate because I’d make them in heartbeat and probably eat them all! *lol*

  2. Hi I want to make these cookies for a cookie swap this year but just noticed theres no egg in the ingredients. Is this correct that theres not egg called for?
    Thank you!
