They are so EASY to make, that I can't even call this a "recipe" because it uses all pre-prepared ingredients and it REALLY DOES taste just like a thin mint cookie!!
I put a little extra white chocolate decoration on these, just for fun,
but it certainly isn't necessary.
You will need some Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers and some Andes (creme de menthe) chocolates.....that's it!!The chocolate wafers come in a 9 ounce package and I found the Andes Mints (those creamy little chocolate mints with the green center) in a 4.67 ounce package. There are 28 mints in the package and one package will do a dozen cookies (I found the mint packages for $1.60 here in Alaska, so hopefully you can find them even cheaper.
I unwrapped and then melted the chocolates in my microwave for about 30 seconds...stirred and then microwaved them for another 10 seconds (stir until the chocolate is smooth and shiny). Dip the chocolate wafers in the melted chocolate (both sides) and place on some parchment paper (or Silpat). Stick them in the fridge (I used the freezer) for about 5 minutes to "set" the chocolate......that's it!!
NOTE: I noticed that they now sell Andes Mint baking chips (next to the chocolate chips).
