Chocolate Mint Creams

Ingredients
1 1/4
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
6
tablespoons butter
2/3
cup packed brown sugar
1
tablespoon water
1
6 ounce package (1 cup) semisweet chocolate pieces
1
egg, lightly beaten
 
Pastel cream mint kisses

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking soda; set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, and water. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted. Add chocolate pieces; cook and stir until chocolate is melted. Pour mixture into a large bowl; cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Using a wooden spoon, stir egg into chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Immediately place a mint kiss on top of each cookie. Bake about 2 minutes more or until edges are set. If desired, gently swirl the melted mints with a table knife. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool until melted mints are firm. Makes about 48 cookies.
