Peppermint Patty Chocolate Chocolate Chip Sandwiches

I have been absent for a while lately.  Shame on me, I know.  But I have a Christmas tree up and all my gifts have been bought.  I have all my baking supplies for brownie gift boxes for my husband's coworkers.  I have supplies for homemade body scrubs.  And homemade vanilla extract is already brewing in the top cabinet.  If you have never heard of Beanilla, check out their site.

I had a great little hometown store back in Florida where they sold vanilla beans for super cheap.  I haven't found a similar place here in North Carolina.  Every bean I see here, I would have to choose which arm or leg I would need sacrifice to purchase it.  For a little while, Beanilla had a special where you could buy 25 beans for 25 dollars.  Awesome!

But the main reason for this post is to let you know about a site that I have been following for a while.  I love Cookies and Cups.  Shelly has a weakness for buttercream, chocolate, and candy.  And most of her recipes don't require a ton of ingredients.

So take a moment and check out her delicious post where she makes chocolate cookies sandwiched together with a York peppermint patty here.  I tweaked it a little and used my recipe for ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies.  They are a little intense and you would be crazy not to have a glass of milk on hand when you eat one.  I'm sorry I don't have pictures.  They didn't last long enough for me to pull out the camera.

You have been warned.  Now, go and enjoy.
