Mini Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

These mini chocolate cookie sandwiches are perfect party treats!

They'll give you a big jolt of chocolate flavor in every tiny bite.

The sandwich cookie filling is made from a unique mixture of milk chocolate and sour cream.

Did you know that the sour cream taste is only mildly sour (or tangy)?

The name sour actually comes from the process of bacterial fermentation which naturally produces lactic acid.

Fat-free "sour cream" really doesn't contain any cream at all and light - or reduced-fat - sour cream contains about 40% less butterfat than regular sour cream.

For best flavors with this cookie recipe, we recommend using regular dairy sour cream since the frosting recipe only calls for 1/4 cup.

Also, this dough requires refrigeration before slicing and baking, so you'll want to plan your cookie-making accordingly.
