How to Make Andes Mint Cookies – Step by Step

Step 1: Prepare baking sheet

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.

Step 2: Make the cookie dough

In a large bowl, stir the cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil by hand until well combined. Add Andes mint chocolate chunks to the mixture and stir. Set the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Prepare the dough

Preheat the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and scoop the dough into medium-sized balls and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Leave about 2 inches between each dough ball. Gently press the tops of the balls to flatten slightly.

Step 4: Bake

Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just set. Do not overbake. Allow your Andes mint cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips and Notes

  • Where to find the Andes mint chocolate chunks: most grocery stores carry the Andes mint baking chunks around the holidays. I have seen them at Target, Walmart, and H-E-B. A lot of stores even carry their own generic version. I’ve used the Walmart version before and they are very good. You can also order them from Amazon here.
  • Don’t overbake the cookies. They will get too crisp if they overbake.
  • Extra toppings: I press a few extra baking chunks into the top of the cookies after removing them from the oven for a prettier presentation, but this is optional!

  • Line the sheet pan with parchment paper. This will help prevent the cookies from burning on the bottom and sticking to the pan. It also makes clean up much easier. 
  • Use a cookie scoop to help scoop out the dough. When you use a cookie scoop, all the cookies will be the same size, so they will cook evenly.
  • Don’t skip the chill time for the dough. If you don’t let the cookies chill, they will spread out too much, and your cookies will be too thin.

To freeze fully baked cookies, place in a freezer safe container or zipper freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw on the counter before enjoying.
