St. Patrick's Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies

A creamy marshmallow mint filling is sandwiched between to perfectly soft and chewy chocolate cookies. You won’t be able to resist these!

I wanted a cookie that was soft and chewy and flat at the same time. Flat works best for sandwich cookies so they don’t topple over. These meet all the criteria. I love marshmallow fillings and I incorporated mint into it to complement the chocolate and because it’s a fitting match with the color green for the St. Patrick’s Day theme.

  1. There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results.’
