Mint Crinkles

Ingredients
3/4
cup finely chopped layered chocolate-mint candies (about 4 ounces or 24 candies)
1/3
cup shortening
1
cup sugar
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
eggs
2
teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2
 
Layered chocolate-mint candies, chopped

Directions

  1. In a heavy small saucepan, heat and stir the 3/4 cup chopped candies until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Cool about 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt; beat until well combined. Beat in cooled chocolate, eggs, and vanilla. Beat or stir in flour. Cover and chill 3 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using about 1 tablespoon of dough per ball, shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until edges are set (tops should crackle). Sprinkle a few candy pieces on top of each cookie; do not press candies into cookies. Bake 1 minute more. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 36 cookies.
