2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt
Andes Mints
Andes Mint baking pieces

Directions
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the sugar, butter and water, stirring occasionally until melted.
     
  2. Once melted, immediately remove from heat, stir in the chocolate chips until melted and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
     
  3. Transfer the chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and mix in the eggs, one at a time.
     
  4. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.   Stir flour mixture into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
