1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 cups real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt


3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 4 tablespoons milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine brown sugar, 3/4 cup butter and water in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted (3 to 4 minutes). Add chocolate chips; cook, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time, until mixture is smooth. Stir in all remaining cookie ingredients.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except milk in large mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

Spread about 2 teaspoons frosting onto flat-side of one cookie; top with second cookie, flat-side down. Squeeze together gently. Repeat with remaining cookies.

VARIATION: Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies. Prepare cookies as directed above. Substitute 1/8 teaspoon peppermint or mint extract for vanilla in filling.

This recipe was great. It was very rich and very good. Everyone loved them.
This is a delicious cookie. For Christmas I color two bowls of icing, one red and one green for a festive cream center, and a great presentation! Everyone gobbles these cookies up!
