Triple Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Peanut Butter Filling

Thanks for all your well wishes. We are all back to our robust health, with a little bit less weight to boot (whoohoo !).

This past week, we have been doing nothing else but packing, packing and more packing. We have sold off our home in Nantes to begin a new chapter of our life in another city. Little One has been very busy helping me packing the books, DVDs, clothes etc. She even helps to hold the box together for me to tape it. What a great little helper!;-)

Our Internet connection will be cut off this weekend and I won't be able post a new recipe until a week or two after. In the meantime, I leave you this delicious cookie recipe.:-)

Ingredients

Triple Chocolates Sandwich Cookies with Peanut Butter Filling
Directions
  1. Preheat oven at 170°C (340°F)
  2. Melt the dark chocolate with the butter in either microwave oven or bain-marie.
  3. Let it cool down before adding the sugar, then stir in the eggs.
  4. Add the flour, the baking powder and the cocoa powder.
  5. Make sure the mixture is well mixed before adding in the milk chocolate.
  6. Scoop a teaspoonful of the paste and roll it into a small ball between your palms. Flatten it slightly on the baking tray leaving about 5 cm between 2 cookies.
  7. Bake it for 12 to 15 minutes. Let it cool on wire rack.

Peanut Butter Filling

  1. Mix peanut butter and powdered sugar well together
  2. Spread some peanut butter filling onto one side of the cookies and sandwich it with another cookie. Press it lightly so that the cookies stick.
  3. Serve it with a cup of coffee or as dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

The Verdict

For all chocoholics and peanut butter addicts, this is THE cookie for you. It's a rich and sinful treat, a strong chocolate flavor that feels almost like bitting a chocolate bar, with a soft peanut core. Yummy!

Notes

Be careful not to overcook them, or else they'll be too hard (although still delicious). 14 min was a bit too much for me, so you might want to keep a watchful eye on your creation.

@keropokman: Guess what? We are sick again. Little One caught the flu bug and is running around with a runny nose:-( Now it seems I have caught her bug too.

If you live near me, I would gladly make a big tray of it for you.:-)

@ovenhaven: hehehe... it is very decadent.;-) I have to stop myself from eating 2 of this at one go.

@ireneangele: ooh...I think it should work. Cashew-macadamia butter ... sounds yummy. Would sure like to know how it taste like. (hint...hint);-)

@lynn: Think we should be done by this afternoon. Thanks. hehehe...Little One and Me are back in the sick department. We caught the flu bug.:-(

@teczcap: Yes you did indeed. It came all the way from LA.;-) My PIL went to LA earlier this year and bought a bottle for us.:-)
