|not the prettiest thing|
makes about 48 cookies
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
6 tbsp butter
1 tbsp water
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 to 3/4 pound pastel colored cream mint kisses
- In a small bowl combine flour and baking soda; set aside. In a medium saucepan cook and stir brown sugar, butter and water over low heat until butter melts. Add chocolate pieces; cook and stir until melted. Pour chocolate mixture into a large bowl; let stand for 10-15 minutes or until cool.
- Beat egg into the chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture until combined (dough will be soft). Cover and chill dough for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpats.
- Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top each cookie with a mint kiss. Return to oven and bake about 2 minutes more or until edges are set. Swirl the melted mints with a knife to frost cookies. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool until mints are firm.
