Chocolate & Orange Sandwich Cookies~!

This morning I made my hubby his favorite breakfast in the world, simple and easy pancakes!  I can barely eat them anymore but don't tell him that after he left today I did have one - with cool whip & strawberries on it for breakfast.

I have always loved the chocolate /orange combo - in a box of chocolates I am forever looking for the orange cream chocolate :)  So here is a recipe that maybe will quench that craving for you too!

Chocolate & Orange Sandwich Cookies
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
Grated zest of 1 orange

6 tbsp. butter
1 c. powdered sugar
Grated zest of an orange and juce of 1 orange

Preheat your oven to 350.  Melt the chocolate and let cool slightsly.  Whisk in the sugar, eggs, and orange zest.  Stir in the dry ingredients.  Spoon small amounts of dough onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake for 10 to 25 minutes - check for firmness.  Cool.
Beat the filling ingredients together .  Spread on a cookie and sandwich with another cookie.
