These Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies are soft and chewy chocolate cookies full of Andes Mints and melty chocolate chips. An award-winning recipe!
Andes Mints + chocolate cookies= the most amazing cookies! I’ve been in love with this chocolate cookie recipe for a few years now. I’ve added M&M’s and PB Cups and thought Andes Mints would be the perfect mix-in, especially with St. Patrick’s Day coming up and I sure was right!
These cookies were AMAZING!!
You can either use Andes Mints baking chips or buy the regular Andes Mints and chop it up. You just need 1 cup plus more for topping.
Either way is delicious!
This chocolate cookie base is MAGIC! I’ve had far too many chocolate cookies in my life that are simply no good. This chocolate cookie base is full of flavor, has the perfect texture and taste! You will love it!
The picture above is being added today, February 22, 2020. I wanted to show what these cookies look like if you want to make them with cut-up Andes Mints with a full Andes Mints on top. It’s pretty isn’t it?! If you want to still be able to read the word, “Andes” You need to add the Andes Mint on top about 1-2 minutes AFTER you take the cookies out of the oven. The cookies will be so hot it melts the chocolate.
The Andes Mint adds the best flavor to these! I added some chocolate chips as well to up the melty chocolatey factor and it was perfect! And if you really love mint feel free to add mint chips instead!
Look at that amazing mint and chocolatey goodness! I shared some of these with my friends and they loved it too!

I didn't need to chill the dough for this recipe but if you find your cookies are spreading then chill the dough either by placing the cookie sheet in the freezer with the dough balls for 10-15 minutes or you can chill the dough for about 1 hour in the refrigerator. Store cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. Can freeze up to 3 months.

These cookies look AMAZING! I love Andes Mints and I can’t wait to try this recipe!!
Thanks Sydney! Andes Mints make everything better! 🙂
I made these they taste fantastic, they did spread too much so next time I will refrigerate the dough first

I made these cookies yesterday and they turned out exceptional. I expect they will become a regular in my holiday repertoire.
AWESOME! I’m so glad you loved it! 🙂
Has anyone added pecans or walnuts to this recipe?
Holly Theresa says

Kristy nguyen says
Omg these chocolates are a childhood favorite.. I am going to try to make these! Xoxo @kristynguyen3
Thanks! I love Andes Mints so much too!
This recipe is so good😍💖
Can you make the dough balls and store in freezer to bake later or do you have to bake immediately? I do this with choc chip cookies and just pop a few in the oven every night! Ty!
Yes, for sure! I do that all the time with pretty much any cookie recipe. Enjoy! (Note, just be sure to flatten the dough balls a bit before freezing because these cookies don’t typically spread as much as others.)
If I wanted to add oatmeal in this recipe, would I need to add something else?
I haven’t tried that so I am not sure. Maybe just adding a little less flour would work.
I made these for my family and they absolutely LOVE them. Perfect taste and texture! Perfect around the holidays, too. Thanks so much for the recipe!
That’s so great to hear! This recipe is a true gem! 🙂
These are delicious! Mine spread out a bit so next time I think I’ll put the dough in the fridge for an hour! How do you store these/how many days? Can they be stored in the freezer? Thank you!
I’m glad you loved it! Chilling for an hour would definitely help with spreading. You can store the cookies at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I plan on making these but might I suggest replacing the vanilla extract with peppermint extract, if you want a more minty flavor to the cookies.
Great suggestion! I would personally still add the vanilla extract if I was making it but that’s my preference.
Cookie baking Dad says
These cookies are delicious. I did chill dough, and had no issues. To appease my sons request for more mint, we added a semi sweet chocolate drizzle, and a sprinkle of crushed candy cane. It added a bit more mint, a little bit of festive color, and a little texture. I thought they were great with or without our additions.
Thank you for sharing this recipe
I’m so glad you guys loved it! I love the additions you two added. Sounds yummy!
OMG Truly amazing and delicious!!! and so easy! i am a terrible baker and these were perfect! i chilled my dough overnight due to laziness haha but turned out perfect
YAY! So great to hear! 🙂
My daughter has been In college for the last four years and each time she comes home or I go to visit her I bake a different variety of cookies for her and her room mates and friends. Tomorrow is her graduation and for her final batch they unanimously decided hands down that they want the Andes mint cookies! And that is saying something because they had 4 years worth of choices!!! Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!!!
WOW! That is so special! Thank you for letting me know! You are amazing! What a sweet tradition to make so many different cookie recipes. Congrats to your daughter and I’m flattered my Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies were the winner for graduation! 🙂
Have been making these for years. They are the best. I am wondering how you think they would bake up as bars? Would you change anything to the recipe,cook time?
I’m so glad you love them! 🙂
That’s a great question! I haven’t tried baking these as bars but I would cut the baking soda to 1/2 teaspoon. I am not quite sure about the bake time. I would say from 20-25 minutes, but I am not sure so check on it maybe starting as early as 15 minutes. Let me know how it turns out! I bet it will be delicious as cookie bars!
The bars turned out great. I had to double the recipe to fit a 9×13 pan. I didn’t make any changes to your recipe. I did have to bake for 25 min. They were a big hit. I love them as cookies but when you are in a hurry the bars are quick.
Jaclyn Hunt says
How many times can I double this? I need 90 cookies for cookie exchange.
It depends on how big your mixer is. You can double it as many times as needed. If I was trying to make 90 cookies, I would only be able to fit it doubled in my Kitchen Aid mixer so I would make the recipe twice doubled each time then just make the cookie dough balls a little smaller to yield more than 20 per 1 recipe. Does that make sense?
These are so good. I chilled them for 1+ hour. They came out flat when baked, but still delicious!
So glad you loved it! Sorry it came out flat! Mine usually are quite thick but certain things can make them flat.
