Mocha Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies

 Coffee + Chocolate = Heaven. 
These two ingredients were made for each other. I’ve always been a fan of a good chocolate and coffee duo. Evan's mother recently introduced us to Publix's Espresso Chip frozen yogurt and I am obsessed! It's a super rich, creamy, coffee-flavored concoction with a hint of coconut flavor, and sprinkled with chocolate-espresso chips. If you’ve ever tried this chocolate and coffee combo you know exactly what I am talking about!
This amazing combination of flavors was my inspiration for these Mocha Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies. These cookies are great with a hot cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of milk as a late night snack! 
 If you're a coffee and chocolate addict like myself, you will love these!
