Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Decadent chocolate sandwich cookies can be filled with your favorite filling. I used chocolate ganache and peanut butter to fill mine. Other filling ideas are jam or marshmallow cream. The cookies are firm, but still chewy. With chocolate ganache, the double dose of chocolate make them extra rich and delicious.
