Andes Candies Chocolate Cookies

I love Andes Candies. Chocolate with a subtle hint of creme de menthe, what’s not to love?!  I can’t even begin to describe how delicious these cookies were hot out of the oven. Very hard to stop tasting after one!  😬


2 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened baking chocolate, I use Ghiradeli’s

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup vegetable shortening, I used Crisco, the white kind

1 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 bag of Andes Candies Creme de Menthe Baking Chips, found at Walmart or Target or in local grocery stores

reheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and set aside.

Using your mixer, cream together shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and blend well. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in Andes Candies. Drop by tablespoons and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
