Chocolate Orange Sandwich Cookies

These gorgeous cookies are perfect for the cookie monsters in your life!

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve posted.  I’ve been living very quietly – around two weeks ago I had a nasty fall and badly sprained my knee.  I’ve also had a very irritating chesty cough so I really haven’t been in the mood for doing much baking or proper cooking.

One thing I did manage to rustle up for my boys last week was these very yummy chocolate orange sandwich cookies from the April issue of Sainsbury’s Magazine.  I have to admit I do love the Sainsbury’s magazine – it’s such a good read and always packed full of yummy sounding recipes. I love curling up with the latest copy and a mug of tea – the simple things in life make me happy 🙂

This recipe is by Joanne Wheatley and lets just say it was a roaring success with my boys and their friends who happened to call by the house that day.  The cookies by themselves are so good – they are thick, chewy on the outside and soft in the middle. They taste of vanilla and are loaded with chocolate chunks (I used a large bar of Cadbury’s Milk chocolate).

What really takes these cookies to another level is the chocolate orange ganache you fill them with.  I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of the filled cookie sandwiches.  I did take one but I can’t find it right now.  But you’ll see them on the link below.  They really are gorgeous.  Wish I had one right now!

Want to try the recipe?  You’ll find it right here on the Sainsbury’s blog 🙂
