Minty Cocoa Fudge Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients
3 1/2
2/3
cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
2
teaspoons baking powder
1 1/3
1 1/2
cups sugar
1/4
cup cooking oil
2
eggs
1
tablespoon vanilla
 
Sugar
1
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1
10 ounce package mint-flavor semisweet chocolate pieces*
2
ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1-1/2 cups sugar and the oil. Beat until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour mixture. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped in additional sugar. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or just until firm. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.
  4. For filling, in a small saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk, chocolate pieces, and chopped chocolate. Cook and stir over medium heat until chocolate melts; cool.
  5. Spread filling on bottoms of half of the cookies, using 1 rounded teaspoon per cookie. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides down, pressing lightly together.

*Tip:

If you can't find mint-flavor semisweet chocolate pieces, use 1-1/2 cups regular semisweet chocolate pieces and stir 1/4 teaspoon mint extract into the melted chocolate mixture.
