"I have also been making these cookies for years and they are always a favorite. For the non-mint fans in my house, we use the cherry Andes candy instead. Gives a cherry chocolate taste instead and everyone is happy! I also used to be able to get the green/choc/green Andes version which added more green color, but have a hard time finding them any more, so the key is to minimize the swirling and then some of the green shows up."

"I have been making this cookie for a few years! It's my favorite Christmas cookie. A few tips-- make sure the mints are unwrapped and stacked so that you can put them on the cookies as fast as possible, more time for melting the chocolate. Also, it depends of course on how big you make these cookies, but i have always put a full andes mint on my cookies, and they are usually 1 1/2" across when finished. This means that i usually use 3 or 4 boxes of andes mint for 1 recipe. Unless you are making a large cookie and only putting 1/2 a mint on top I would imagine that you will need more than 1 box for this recipe."

"These are AWESOME! Although I had used margarine & butter, and using the margarine made the cookies chewier. If you like the Girl Scout Cookies: Thin Mints ~ you will LOVE these...perfect for the holidays"
