Makes 24 cookies

3/4 cup butter (not margarine)
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
Andes mints candies, broken in half


1 Heat oven to 350°F.
2 Over low heat, combine butter, sugar and water.
3 Heat until melted and add chocolate chips until partly melted.
4 Remove from heat and stir.
5 Pour into large mixing bowl.
6 Let stand 10 minutes to cool slightly.
7 Beat in eggs one at a time on high speed.
8 Reduce mixer to low speed and add flour, salt and baking soda.
9 Beat until well-blended.

12 Bake for 10 minutes.
13 Place an Andes Mint half on top.
