"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 T. water
12 oz. chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 t. baking soda
24 Andes mints

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt together the butter, brown sugar, and water, stirring occasionally.
Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Let stand 10 minutes to cool. Add the remaining ingredients and combine to form a dough.
Chill dough for at least 1 hour.
Roll the dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving ample space between the balls.
Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven, and on top of each cookie place half of an Andes mint. Allow the mint to melt and then swirl the mint over the top of the cookie with the back of a spoon or knife.
