Chocolatly Creamy Goodness

I absolutely love these cookies and they are especially addicting to munch on.The reasons why they are so tempting is for one their appearance, which resembles either a round ice cream sandwich or a thick Oreo whatever may be your idea on this cookie.Either idea for the cookie, hands down they will be devoured very quickly so I recommend doubling the recipe to keep your kids,family and guests happy.

I also found these cookies super cute because of their super tiny shape. So just to tell people that don't know me personally that I get a kick out of super tiny food or just anything, its probably a girl thing I'm sure.Tiny bakery items also makes you feel as though your eating less; however doesn't really count if you go back 2 or 3 times.

These chocolate vanilla creams are deliciously rich with chocolate and with a smooth sweet vanilla cream.Its reminds me a lot of an Oreo cookie; but healthier in ways and better tasting.Homemade seem to be the way to get bang for your buck.This cookie got great texture mixtures of crunchy, soft and smooth and I definitely would make it again, they are so good.The recipe is pretty straight forward and I also added a few extra things to the recipe below for different measurements.So it make it easier for everyone because I sometimes have trouble converting weights since I dont have a grams scale. So hopefully that helps anyone that may use this recipe and under What I Did helps point by point things I changed up for my recipe.

So try it out yourself!

What I Did:
  • Added a little of water to help bring the dough together into a soft ball.
  • Didn't use chocolate sprinkles
  • Didn't dust with icing sugar (forgot)
