These are my favorite cookies. I'm not just saying that. They are my very very very favorite.
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
12 ounces chocolate chips
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
24 Andes mints
( I prefer the Ande's mint baking chips you can buy next to the chocolate chips)
In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt together the butter, brown sugar, and water, stirring occasionally.
Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Let stand 10 minutes to cool.
Add remaining ingredients. Chill dough at least 1 hour.
Roll into balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° F. for 8 to 9 minutes.
Remove from the oven and on top of each cookie, place half an Andes mint (or some baking chips). Allow the mint to melt and then swirl the mint over the cookie with the back of a spoon or knife (I think a fork works best)
