Andes Mint Cookies

I have added a new cookie to my Christmas cookie tray this year.  The frosting on these cookies is created with a melted Andes mint.  Soft and not too sweet, they're the perfect blend of chocolate and mint!

3/4 c butter
1 1/2 c brown sugar
2 tbsp water
12 oz chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 3/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
24 Andes mints

In medium saucepan, melt together butter, brown sugar, and water, stirring occasionally.  Add chocolate chips and stir until melted.  Add remaining ingredients and combine to form a dough.  Chill dough about an hour.  Then roll dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving ample space between dough balls.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.  Remove cookies from oven, and top each cookie with half an Andes mint.  Allow mint to melt and then swirl the mint over the cookie with a knife.  Makes about 48 cookies.
