Baking With Candy
One of the few candies made on dedicated equipment free of nuts are Andes mints. Having a "safe" candy for Danny is really great, and as a bonus he likes them. I had my doubts about the cherry flavour, fearing it would taste like cough syrup, but they were actually pretty good,with bits of dried cherries as well. I grabbed a coupon for a rebate, and it had a couple recipes on the back. These cookies were one of them.
Again, I didn't think they would be worth the bother, but in the end, they truly were. I ran short of candies so I filled the last few with baking chips-worked fine. I imagine you could use just about any candy.
The recipe is HERE at the Andes website.
