Some of my favorite recipes of my mother’s growing up were the ones that contained anything chocolate. If any of you have made it out for a clinic at our ranch at The Double Horn, chances are you may have had my Mother’s cookies. For those of you who haven’t experienced a clinic here with our homemade meals, or for the working wife whose Cowboy husband loves chocolate… this recipe is sure to be a hit.
WHAT YOU NEED:
4 Packages Andees Chocolates
Melt 3/4 cup of butter, 1.5 Cups Brown Sugar and 2 Cups of Chocolate Chips in a Double Boiler or Microwave. Set aside to cool.
Aerate into mixing bowl 2-1/2 Cups of Flour. As an option, you may add chopped pecans or walnuts here as well.
Add 2 Eggs and 1-1/4 Teaspoons of Baking Soda to the cooled chocolate mixture. From here, thoroughly mix to combine chocolate and flour mixtures.
Refrigerate for one hour.
Ball onto parchment with middle size scoop. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.
Remove from oven and while hot, place an andees mint over each cookie. When melted, frost cookie with frosting of your choice.
Sincerely, Your Friend,
