Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Welcome to cookie #4 of my holiday cookiepalooza! Today’s cookie is my Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. These cookies are one of my favorites and full of dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds, and cajeta (caramel).  I used my homemade cajeta, but you can use store-bought or a thick caramel. If you’re new to Snappy Gourmet, I’ve been taking the dough from my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and using it to make different kinds of cookies.  So easy taking one dough and making a variety of cookies!   I’m all for saving time especially this time of year! These Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are also great if you just want drop cookies and don’t want to make them into “sandwiches” with a filling.  Hope you enjoy them!
