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 cups all-purpose flour
  • Layered chocolate-mint candies, chopped

Directions

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 4

Using about 1 tablespoon of dough per ball, shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with Reynolds® Parchment Paper.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

To Store: Layer cookies between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to hours or freeze for up to months.
