Triple Chocolate Espresso Sandwich Cookies

Mocha is an all-time favorite of mine!  I love the mix of the espresso and chocolate flavors.  In drinks, cake, frosting, donuts, and well the list could go on and on.  This time the wonderful combo was put into cookies.  And not just any cookies… but two of the these flavor loaded cookies with chocolate buttercream frosting sandwiched between them.  An irresistibly rich dessert.

The original recipe called for only white chocolate chips but of course I only had a small amount of white chocolate chips left in the pantry.  So I was left with only one option…. dump whatever chips I did have left into the bowl.  And there you have it, the triple chocolate espresso cookie.  Then I doubled the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting that Becca used in her Double Doozies to complete the sandwich.  YUM!!
