Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. When it comes to the treats for the kids in class, I tend to go the "non-food" route. But for the teachers, I like to spoil them with something like this chocolate sandwich cookie.

What You Need:
Chocolate Cut-Out Cookies (heart-shaped, of course!)
Valentine Sprinkles
Strawberry Icing:
  1/2 cup butter (1 stick) at room temperature
  3-4 cups powdered sugar
  1/3 cup pureed strawberries (fresh or frozen)

Make and cool the chocolate cookies. (Click here for my Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe.)

Make the Icing:

Combine the butter and one cup of the powdered sugar.

Add the strawberries, and mix well.
*Note: I prefer to use defrosted frozen strawberries for this. You will want to pour off the liquid before pureeing the strawberries to keep the icing from getting too watery.

Add more powdered sugar until the icing is relatively stiff. (Think the consistency of cookie dough. NOT like pudding or the thin icing you would spread on a cake.) I added about 3 1/2 cups total.
You want this icing to be thick or it will squish out when you take a bite.

Spread icing on one cookie, leaving a little space around the edges.
Avoid overloading the cookie with icing, or it will just get really messy when you add the sprinkles, and when you eat it.

Sandwich the icing with another cookie.

Dip the edges in the sprinkles.
*Note: I recommend using a paper plate to make it easier to keep the sprinkles contained, and to be able to move the sprinkles back into a pile.

Store the cookies in the refrigerator. The icing is best if it is a little cold when you eat the cookies... again just to keep it from squishing too much out of the sides.

PS- The cookie at the top of the post actually has mint icing inside. I will share that recipe really soon. Those are super yummy, too!
