Mistletoe Mint Cookies

3/4 cup margarine
1-1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
2 tablespoons water
2 cup chocolate chips
2 Eggs
2-1/2 cup flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
12 ounces Andres mint candy (2 boxes)

Melt margarine, add chips and stir until partially melted. Remove
from heat and stir until chips are completely melted. Pour into large
bowl. Add brown sugar and water and cool slightly. At high speed,
beat in eggs one at a time. Reduce to low speed and add dry
ingredients. Stir until blended. Chill dough.
When ready to bake, line cookie sheets with foil. Preheat oven to 350
degrees. Roll dough into very small balls (about 1/2 teaspoon per
ball). Place 2 inches apart and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and while cookies are still on pan, place half a
candy piece on each cookie. Remove to waxed paper, wait about a
minute and swirl the candy pieces across top of cookie.
