Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar

  • 2 cups Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ½° cups all purpose flour
  • Andes mints halved

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar, and water.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Chill for 10 minutes.
  • Using a hand or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture and keep beating until just combined. Don't over mix.
  • Slowly add the baking soda, salt and flour. When all the ingredients come together, let the dough chill for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Roll the dough into balls, about 2 inches in diameter and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
