Andes Mints

Andrew Kanelos had a sweet shop in Chicago in 1921 named Andy’s Candies. After the growth of the business which included 150 stores, a factory was built and the name was changed to Andes Candies.

The company is nowadays best known for the iconic after-dinner mint, a rectangular candy made with a layer of mint sandwiched between layers of chocolate. Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips were added to the product line in 2005. Today, the company is owned by Tootsie Roll Industries.

    You have the wrong Andes item listed in the recipe. Andes peppermint crunch baking chips are not chocolate, they are peppermint bark made into chips, so they are white and red, not chocolate color. I assume you meant to list Andes Crème De Menthe Baking Chips, as they are pictured in the recipe and would provide the chocolate coating on the cookie, as is pictured in the recipe.

    1. You are absolutely right and I have updated the post.
      I see that you gave the recipe 3 stars. In your opinion, what was lacking? Was it the taste? Difficulty?

        I did not care for the vanilla wafer texture or taste. Because I liked the idea and mint flavor, I made more using oreo thins with extra stuff, and they were amazing! So the problem was the wafer cookie.

    I really enjoyed all the many recipes. And then I got to the candies and cookies. oh my! I will come back again and again with all the fine things to fix.
