Chocolate Mint Creams

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 pound pastel cream mint kisses


Directions:

  1. Stir together flour and baking soda. 
  2. In a medium saucepan heat and stir brown sugar, butter, and water over low heat until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips. Heat and stir until chocolate is melted. Pour into a large mixing bowl and let stand for 10-15 minutes or until cool. 
  3. Beat egg into chocolate mixture. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Dough will be soft. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours until easy to handle. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. 
  4. Remove and immediately top each cookie with a mint. Return to the oven and bake about 2 minutes more or until cookies are done. Swirl the melted mints with a knife to "frost" cookies. Remove and cool until mints are firm.
