Chocolate Chip S'mores Sandwich Cookies

Hey everyone! Happy weekending!

Today I woke up and went to our local YMCA for a Zumbathon! It was super fun and helped raise money for the expansion of their current program. I think it is a great thing to support since I am a huge YMCA user. I even purchased some raffle tickets and won a door prize {a beautiful turquoise scarf from a local boutique!!!}...My foot could only go so long before it gave out, so after 75 minutes, and 10 lbs of sweat, I decided to take my butt inside and proceeded to do 35 minutes of weight lifting. By the time I was done with my workout, I swear I lost 10 lbs of blood, sweat and tears and a hole lotta stank! I mean litterally! It is 90 degrees, we did our Zumbathon outside on the black top, so it was more like 120! First thing Lance says to me when I get in the door "Mommy you really stink" and waves his hands in front of his nose...

Needless to say, I hopped in the shower, ate lunch and the was having SUPER cravings for chocolate of some sort...So I set to making Chocolate Chip S'mores Sandwich Cookies and thought I would hop on in and share the recipe with you since they turned out absolutely DELISH!!! Hope you enjoy!
