Chocolate Mint Cookies (with Andes mints)

I made these cookies with Andes mints for Christmas and just made them again. They are so delightful!

Container: lightly greased cookie sheet and a medium saucepan
Prep Time: 1.5 hours
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serving Description: 1 cookie
Servings: 48
Enter desired servings:

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
12 ounces chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoons 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 the dough at least 1 hour.
Roll the dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving ample space between the dough balls.
Bake at 350°F for 8 to 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 cookie with the back of a spoon or a knife.
