Author: Roseanne Carrara, The Lunchbox Season


  • 2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips [1 for melting into the dough at first 1 for adding into the dough at the end]
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped fine
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped Andes Mints [we used 2 1/2 small 71gram packages]


  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpats.
  • In a high-heat-friendly glass bowl set over a pot of gently boiling water, melt the butter, 1/2 of the chocolate chips and the chopped unsweetened chocolate.
  • Set the bowl aside to cool, or transfer the melted mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  • Cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the sugar, flour and baking powder and stir to combine.
  • The mixture will look grainy.
  • Once the batter is no longer hot to the touch, add the eggs and vanilla and combine.
  • The mixture will begin to shine.
  • Using a spatula, incorporate your additional chocolate chips and the chopped Andes Mints.
  • Using a tablespoon, dollop your coookie dough onto the lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookie is shiny but not dark or wet towards the middle. The cookies will still be soft to the touch, though. So, don’t over bake!
  • Cool cookies on the pan for 3-5 minutes.
  • Move the parchment or silpat sheets of cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
