Andes Mint Cookies

Soft and chewy. Chocolaty. Almost like a brownie. Great mint flavor. That sums this cookie up perfectly. I actually think this chocolate cookie will be my go to chocolate cookie base; I can imagine how great it would taste with a whole assortment of mix ins.

Andes Mint Cookies
Source: Cafe Zupas (here)

¾ c. butter (1½ stick)
1½ cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons water
12 oz. (2 cups) chocolate chips (I do 1 cup bittersweet, 1 cup semi)
2 eggs
2 ½ cups flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt

In a large bowl melt together the butter, brown sugar, water and chocolate chips. *I microwave it for a minute at a time stirring after each until melted.

Beat in eggs, add in sifted remaining dry ingredients until blended. Chill 1 hour or overnight. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake @ 325°F for 8-10 minutes. Place mint on top, you may want to place back in the oven for a second or two. Spread when melted. Let cool completely; or not.
