Robin, from Chino Valley, Arizona shared her recipe for Christmas After-Dinner Cookies that her mom has been making since she was little. The mint adds a refreshing taste to this cookie that is a perfect way to end a meal.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 (4.67-ounce) packages chocolate mint wafer candies (each one cut in half)
What To Do:
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt chocolate chips and butter.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chocolate mixture, brown sugar, and water; cool slightly. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour, salt, and baking soda. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well combined. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  4. Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned; remove from oven. Place half a mint on top of each warm cookie. Remove to wire rack and cool one minute. Gently spread melted mint over tops of cookies and cool completely.
