Chocolate Sandwich Cookies for Valentine's Day

Yesterday, I shared a Chocolate Cherry Crackle Cookie, today I want to share with you a chocolate sandwich cookie.  They are almost like a homemade Oreo cookie...but kinda better in my opinion.

Valentine's Day is coming quickly, and these are a perfect easy little treat to make for your special Valentine.
Do you go all out for Valentine's Day?  Do you expect flowers, sent to your office, because getting flowers delivered to you at work, is so much better.  Having all your co-workers ooo and ahh, that is the most rewarding part, right?  Me, I am a "don't spend money on flowers" type of gal.  Sure I like it when my husband drops by my office and brings me daisies, which are my favorite, but I would rather have something I can hold on to and will last longer then a few day.  A new stand mixer...that is love to me.  A new pair of cowboy boot...oh yes, love you honey.  Chocolate...yes please, but make it dark...and if it has coconut with it, I will love you for ever.

I made these cookies by using the chocolate version of my favorite sugar cookie recipe, you can find it Here. While I normally roll my cookies to 3/8 inch, since these were sandwich cookies, I rolled to 1/4 inch, and reduced the baking time to 13-15 minutes. I used a tiny heart cutter to make a cut out of half of the cookies, and sprinkled the opening with Valentine sprinkles once I assembled the cookies

For the filling, well, NOTHING beats the delicious buttercream by Simply Sweets by Honeybee. I did leave out the almond, and just added more vanilla, but that is just a personal preference of mine.

For a cookie that is so cute, these were really fast to make. You can whip them up tonight, and have them ready for giving on Valentines day.  My recipe makes a HUGE batch, like 4.5-5 dozen sandwich cookies, so you can divide them up to several people.  Your special love Valentine, teachers, children, bank teller, doctor, boss...whoever you want to make feel special that special day.

I hope you have enjoyed these last few quick and easy
Valentine desserts....I will be back tomorrow with one last 
super fast Valentine's Day dessert.
