• 3/4 cup butter
• 1 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
• 3 tablespoons water
• 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
• 2 large eggs
• 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• Green mint wafers
In a saucepan over low heat, cook butter, sugar and water until butter is melted.
Add chocolate chips and stir until partially melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until chocolate is completely melted.
Pour into a large mixer bowl and let stand 15 minutes to cool. Mix at high speed and beat in eggs one at a time. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients.
Mix until just blended.
Cover dough tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour until dough is easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Line 2 cookie sheets with foil.
Roll teaspoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Bake 15 minutes.
Cookies should come out of the oven looking slightly underdone. They will crisp when cool.
Immediately after taking them out of the oven, place one mint wafer on top of each cookie. Allow mints to soften.
