Modern Baker: Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Milk Chocolate Filling

The Modern Bakers are baking cookies, bars, and biscotti from the Modern Baker cookbook and any chocoholic will love these! The chocolate cookie is simple and delicious all on it's own. The dough is made with butter, melted and cooled semisweet chocolate, flour, and confectioners' sugar. Four ingredients for simple and delicious little cookies.

I could see making these cookies all on their own, especially for tea. That is, if I drank tea.
The milk chocolate icing was super yummy, but sadly did not thicken enough. It squished out the sides of my sandwich cookies, but that was okay. I found a grand solution. I simply took the remaining chocolate filling and used it as a dip for the cookies. A little runny, but I'm not complaining.

Easter Fun!

 Happy Easter!!!
How we celebrated...

Ready, set, DYE!

Easter Egg Hunt hair for preschool.

A new tradition: We planted "magic jelly" beans and waited to see what would happen on Easter.

Rainbow lollipops!!
(One of the most fun ideas I found on Pinterest this year!! I hope to keep this new tradition alive for years to come! It turned out we had plans to be gone the whole day before Easter. So on Friday the girls and I planted their beans and then I got the idea to just have the sticks showing on Saturday morning. The girls were giddy with excitement seeing those sticks and beyond excited by their lollipops!!)

And, then the Easter Bunny came!
