Chocolate Mint Puddles

This delicious Chocolate Mint Puddles recipe for anyone who loves the coolness of mint and the richness of chocolate!


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 (4.5 oz) packages Andes mints


  1. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Roll cookie dough into small balls and place on cookie sheets, approximately 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 8-10 minutes. After removing cookie sheet from oven, press a mint into each cookie and allow to sit for one minute, melting slightly. (If the mints don’t melt enough — as mine didn’t — feel free to pop the cookies with the mints on top back in the oven for an extra 30 seconds to soften the chocolate.)
  4. Then, using a toothpick, swirl the melted mint to make a pattern. Allow to cool before serving.
