Thoroughly mix first 5 ingredients. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Chill. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheet. Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place on cookie sheet. Dip bottom of drinking glass in flour. Use bottom to flatten cookies. Bake for about 8 minutes. As soon as cookies are removed from oven, place a peppermint wafer slightly off center of each cookie. Place two chips close together next to top edge of mint and one at the bottom edge. Remove cookies to cooling racks. With toothpick in a circular motion, stir two top chips to form a cathead. Draw up part of that circle up to form two pointed ears. On the bottom chip, with toothpick shape the melted chocolate into a long tail.
