You understand why I do not based on my reasoning I explained with my peppermint chocolate chip cookies yesterday. Right? But, if it doesn’t irk you, then I think it makes them really pretty and definitely very special.

These chocolate cookie sandwiches are a great cross between a whoopie pie and a cookie, making them perfect in my opinion. Not too cake-y and not to cookie-y, but juuuuuussst right.
