Andes Candies Mint Chocolate Cookies

Andes mints unwrapped for top
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Unwrap 24 Andes mints and set them aside. They will go on top of the cookies once they are done baking.
Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla, and mint extract in a large bowl. Or use a
Kitchenaid stand mixer
which is one of my most favorite kitchen gadgets.
Then mix in egg.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Then add the dry ingredients to the dough mixture.
Mix in 3/4 cup of Andes mint baking chips or chopped Andes mints into the cookie dough batter.
Roll dough into 1" balls and place on a baking sheet lined with
silicone baking mats
or parchment paper.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, then immediately put one Andes mint on top of each cookie and move the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Once the Andes mint begins to melt smooth it out with a spoon or butter knife.
If the mints aren't melting just set the wire rack with cookies back into the oven on warm with the door open to until the mints finish melting.
