Lemon-Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

As I was wondering the isles of Fresh Market, I got lost and found myself in the cookie isle. 🙂  While I was trying to find my way out, I spied with my little eye a box of Meyer Lemon Wafer Cookies.  I immediately thought they would taste wonderful with chocolate.  Surprise, Surprise!

No Surprise, I was right!  These are so simple, but you will be down right shocked at how good!

The wafers are made my Salem Baking Co., Meyer Lemon with Lemon Zest is a pretty tasty little wafer cookie all by itself, so I can only take half the credit of this recipe.  Since I have a minor obsession with Citrus with Chocolate at the moment, you don’t have to use Lemon wafers.  You could use Vanilla or Chocolate or whatever catches your fancy.  

I decided to use my Milk-Chocolate Frosting recipe to spread in between two of these wafers and form a sandwich. This Frosting recipe works on cupcakes and cakes too! 

These are so good, that while I was taking the pictures Jacob kept snatching them off the board.

  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips (11 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, boiling
  • 8 tablespoon chilled unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Place chocolate, corn syrup and salt in a food processor.  Blend for a minute.  While running slowly pour cream through feed tube and process an additional minute.

Add confectioners sugar let processor run 30 seconds and add butter while running one piece at a time.  Process until chocolate is smooth.

Let sit at room temperature, stirring for 1 hour before using.  Can be stored in refrigerator up to a week.

Believe it or not I did have a few left over so I stored them in the original plastic trays that cookies came packaged.  I then slid the tray into a small ziploc bag and stored the cookies in the refrigerator.  Word of Warning, hide them behind something, otherwise you will have an empty ziploc bag in your refrigerator!
