  ______________________________________   ______________________________________

 UPDATE
 these are the actual little nuggets of love made by me
 i left some of the cookies undecorated so the kids could join in on the fun. the little surprise in each one of them was an andes mint.
 
amanda loved it!

 
rachel made this one for jacob

      jacob was enthralled with the candy heart sprinkles
OOOOOPS!
the verdict is in: YUMMY!
                                                angel thought so too! now we know why we can't get her to lose weight   


everyone needs some little nuggets of love once in awhile!               




Mint Candy Cookies

1 pkg 17.5 oz sugar cookie mix
Andes candies
Cookie icing
Heart candy sprinkles

Prepare the cookie dough according to the package direction. Cover and chill for 15-20 minutes or until easy to handle. Pat a heaping tablespoon of dough in a thin layer around each mint candy. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool for one minute before removing  from pans.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE Andes Mints. I could eat a whole package of those things so I know they are good inside a warm cookie. Jacob does just like Andrew...always feeding the dog!

Those look so good! I can't wait to see how Adelyn gets along with our dog. I'm guessing she'll do what Jacob does. We may end up with the same problem you have. :)

I love these cookies at Valentine's. I've never made them with Andes Mints inside. Nummy!

I've got to get my cookie cutters out and get baking. I love eating them as much as decorating them.

Have a nice weekend.
