Chocolate Confetti Sandwich Cookies

I hope that you all had a great weekend. I whipped up these sandwich cookies to try something different. These chocolate confetti sandwich cookies are bright and the perfect combination of chocolate and vanilla. There is something for everybody in this recipe. The cookies remind me of the texture of a whoopie pie. They are soft and chewy.

The frosting is a cream cheese frosting that compliments the chocolate flavor of the cookies well. The  outer layer of the frosting is covered in colorful sprinkles. These cookies would be great for a holiday party if you can find the green and red sprinkles to use.
