“A

balanced diet is a bar of chocolate in each hand” – said the unknown wise person once, I bet it was a woman. ;) So I figured, why not make a treat that will contain a double amount of chocolate to fulfill the needs of every chocolate aficionada out there? And here they are – (drum roll please!) – decadent double chocolate spritz cookies, just for you!

Now, here, on my site I have a recipe for buttery, melt-in-your-mouth Viennois cookies – also called spritz cookies, so if you have already made those, this – new and improved recipe will be a piece of cake for you! Now – imagine the same cookies, but twice as yummy since these are flavored with chocolate and sandwiched with dark chocolate ganache! Chocolate as far as the eye can see, absolutely divine! So, my fellow chocolate addicts, this one is for you from me!
