Grilled Chocolate Sandwich

I think everyone should have chocolate on hand all day EVERY day 365 days a year! I remember that my mom used to make me Chocolate Sandwiches in elementary school, such a great TREAT , much better than peanut butter. So she stopped making it when she realized that I am just as obsessed with it ! Years Passed, but i’m still chocolate sandwiches kinda addict. Nope, It is not just Chocolate Sandwich ! I meant a grilled  chocolate sandwich. It is as rich and delicious as it sounds, I promise!

Shortbread cookies aka Mexican Wedding cookies

How can a cookie with only four ingredients taste SO good? All I had the energy to do on last Friday was bake a batch of shortbread. It was definitely a sick day! But shortbread is a wonderful starting point for all kinds of sweet adventures: one part sugar, two parts butter, three parts flour, no leavening.
