Here at BFFF, we love putting new twists on old classics. So these tiramisu sandwich cookies by Tessa of Style Sweet are a dream come true! They’re the perfect sweet individual treats to serve at a party, especially when paired with a cold glass of milk. They’re bursting with chewy, decadent flavor that would satisfy any chocolate lover! Here’s what Tessa has to say:

“One of the most fun ways to create a new recipe is by finding a traditional dish and giving it a new spin.  These Tiramisu Sandwich Cookies take the flavors of a classic Italian layered dessert and turn them into a hand-held modern treat.  Coffee spiked mascarpone filling is sandwiched between chewy double-chocolate and espresso cookies.  While traditional tiramisu can get a bit messy and soggy, these cookie sandwiches are just as easy to whip up as they are to serve at your next party.”

      These looks lovely, anything that’s described as being “spiked” with coffee is my kind of dessert! Such a good idea though, with lots less mess for parties than other traditional desserts, and potentially even cupcakes!

      S xo.
