3 Ingredient Chocolate Raspberry Cookies


As I'm sure you know by now, I love making holidays super special for my kids from morning until night.  Valentine's Day is almost here so I've been planning how to do that.  Last year I made these heart cut-out One Eyed Sandwiches to start the day and they were such a hit, I'm planning to make them again.


We don't have a babysitter this year so we will be celebrating as a family.   In thinking about our dessert, I wanted to make a Valentine's treat that Jake could make with me.  These Chocolate Raspberry Cookies are incredibly easy but look super impressive and taste divine.  You only need THREE ingredients to make them: a box of Famous Chocolate Wafers, some raspberry jam (I used seedless but regular is fine too), and chocolate chips.


I like to use a cooling rack with wax paper underneath to assemble these cookies, but you can use a cookie sheet or even just the wax paper.  For each finished cookie you will need two wafers.  Start out by laying your chocolate wafers in pairs.  Put some chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.  While your chocolate is melting spread raspberry jam on half of the wafers.


Once your chocolate is ready, use another knife (I found a little butter knife is perfect for this) to spread the melted chocolate on the remaining wafers.


Then sandwich together a raspberry wafer with a chocolate wafer and let set.

 

That is it.  Three ingredients and less than ten minutes to a plate full of delicious Chocolate Raspberry Cookies.  These cookies are perfect for Valentine's Day, but they are easy and impressive enough to make them year round.  Enjoy!
