I love chocolate sandwich cookies and think it’s the perfect cookie to dip in a glass of cold milk. These chocolate and coffee sandwich cookies are not only fudgy and super rich, but also have coffee cream filling to make it extra decadent. The coffee cream adds the greatest aroma and combines perfectly with the sweetness of the chocolate cookie.

- Using 2 spoons or an ice cream scoop create small mounds (about the size of a walnut) and put on the baking paper.
