Bake 8-10 minutes. While cookies are baking unwrap mints and divide each in half. If cookies look puffy when you remove them from the oven, don’t fret; they will flatten out when you add the mint wafer.

When cookies are brought out of the oven, put 1/2 mint on top of each cookie. If you want to spread the chocolate, let the mint sit for up to 5 minutes until melted, then spread the mint on top of the cookie with the bottom of a spoon.
