Cookie Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375 f.

Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Unwrap one third of the Andes mints and chop them into small pieces.

Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a bowl. Set aside.

Beat both sugars and the butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy.

Add in vanilla and eggs; beating well.

Slowly add the flour mixture one tablespoon at a time, stirring well into the sugar and egg mixture.

Stir in the chopped Andes mint candy pieces.

Next, use a small ice cream scoop to measure out the cookies.

Place the unbaked cookie dough onto the lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes or until the baked cookie is slightly cracked.

Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes, before transferring the cookies to wire cooling racks to cool completely.

Frosting Instructions

Using a stand mixer, cream 1 1/3 cups sugar with 1/2 cup butter.

Slowly add the mint extract, 2 tablespoons milk, and the rest of the powdered sugar into the bowl and blend well.

Gradually add one tablespoon of milk at a time until the desired consistency is reached.

Spread a thick layer of frosting on each cookie and set aside.

Chocolate Topping Instructions

Chop the remaining Andes Mint candies in half.

Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate wafers, stirring constantly.

Set aside to cool slightly.

After the melted chocolate has cooled and thickened slightly, use a tablespoon to add a dollop on top of each cookie.

Top each cookie with the cut halves of the Andes Mint candies.

Serve and enjoy!

  1. We always have Andes Candies in our house because my oldest is addicted to them. These would be a big hit in my house.

  2. Grasshopper cookies I haven’t made is such a long time. Who doesn’t love chocolate with mint and more chocolate, plus you put more mint candy on top. I could overdose on mint and chocolate. What a way to go.

  3. These look so good. My son loves Andes mints and grasshopper pie, so these grasshopper cookies would be right up his alley.

  4. These look incredible! I actually just discovered Andes mints here at our dollar store and I am in love. So I bet these would be just amazing!

  5. This recipe completes me! I can’t tell you enough how much I love andes mints, and to think I can make cookies out of them – pure genius! Thank you so much for sharing!

  6. Those look amazing! These would be the perfect cookies for my oldest daughter and my husband. They love anything mint flavored.
