I have another great mint chocolate recipe for you today! We go nuts over those Italian bakery cookies. You know the ones, light an crispy cookies in bright colors, dipped in chocolate or preserves and loaded with sprinkles… yum!

I wanted to try to make some myself but put a little holiday twist on them. Mint chocolate is a classic combo but this time of year mint is in high demand!

Italian butter cookies dipped in milk chocolate and topped with Andes mint pieces! The cookies shown make a lot but they are bite sized!
Ingredients
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup milk chocolate chips, melted
  • ½ Cup Andes baking chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Beat in the egg and then gradually beat in the flour just until the dough forms.
  2. Using a cookies press (I used the Christmas tree shape) press out the cookies about a half inch apart on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown along the edges.
  4. Transfer on to a wired rack to cool completely.
  5. Melt the chocolate and using an off set spatula, spread a thin layer on the back of each cookie, sprinkle on some of the Andes mints, place in the fridge to harden at least 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

    Mmm! Those look good. I never realized that those cookies had different names. I grew up calling them Spritz cookies. I think that was the brand name of the cookie dough press. I love the idea of dipping them in chocolate.
