I was walking around the grocery store when I came across a frosting flavor of peanut butter cookie dough and knew immediately that I needed to get it and put it on something. I wasn’t sure yet, but initially I was thinking about a batch of cupcakes. Then as I was watching t.v. it came to me. Chocolate chip frosting sandwiches. That’s what I needed to make with this crazy new frosting.
I’ve been in the mood for chocolate chip cookies lately. Not sure why other than it’s been a really really long time since I’ve made just a plain batch of them. Then I amped them up by smearing some frosting between two and sticking them together. It was AWESOME and super fun to eat. Little cookie sandwiches. I really liked the frosting that I picked up at the store since it wasn’t too sweet. By itself the frosting is a little on the bland side, but after adding it to the cookies the flavor really stands out.
These are just a tad addicting, so after this frosting is finished I’ll probably try to stay away from the baking isle for a while. Otherwise we might have a freezer full of these and nothing else! You can use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for this. The below recipe is what I used and it's from the back of the Kirkland semi-sweet chocolate chips bag.
