Chocolate Mint Marvels

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

Brown Sugar

Chocolate Chips

Nuts

STEP 1:

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.

STEP 2:

Aerate into mixing bowl 2-1/2 Cups of Flour. As an option, you may add chopped pecans or walnuts here as well.

STEP 3:

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.

STEP 4: 

Refrigerate for one hour.

STEP 5:

Ball onto parchment with middle size scoop. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.
