St. Patrick’s Day Mint Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

I’m usually so bad about coming up with holiday-themed desserts.  But today, in honor of my LAST DAY OF WORK and tomorrow being St. Patrick’s Day, I’m sharing something so easy that you won’t mind making it last minute.

St. Patrick’s Day Mint Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

The secret to these sandwiches is a pre-made wafer cookie.  Shhh, I won’t tell.  Stuff them with homemade mint buttercream and dip them in chocolate then no one will care.  Sometimes it is all about the buttercream anyway.

On another note, after today I’ll be starting my sort-of-new life where I generally work from home, create my own schedule and have to self-motivate.  My plan is to create a schedule for myself every Sunday night, get up early every morning for the gym (my usual) and then get dressed and work all day.  I’d love any tips you have on staying motivated and being efficient when you work from home!

Oh and suggestions on how to not end up in the kitchen eating cookies all day would probably be helpful too.

    So festive and cute! I quite like how many colors and textures you managed to cram into one fantastic cookie. Very attractive food photography…

    Off to find the recipe! These are too cute for St. Patty’s Day! And there is absolutely nothing wrong with store bought wafers, can I just order all of your finished cookies too? :)

    So festive and pretty! What perfect little cookies for St. Patricks day!

    Well aren’t these just the most festive treats ever!

    These are great, and great to celebrate your last day! Although I am sure it is still bittersweet in a way.

    Happy last day of work! Yay! :)

    These look awesome. Very festive!

    And I’m afraid I have no self-motivation tips. I’m in my pajamas within 15 seconds of stepping in the door. If I don’t go out, my pajamas only come off for shower time. It’s cozier that way. And chores? Those can wait. Good luck with working from home. :)

    Congrats on your last day of work and the beginning of your exciting new business! I’m so excited for you, Lauren. These St. Patty’s treats look so festive and fun. I’m all for short-cuts when they taste good. And, these obviously are delicious. You can’t go wrong with that combo.

      Thanks so much, Monica!

    sandwich cookies hold a special place in my heart, but yours take the cake (ha ha) for creativity and deliciousness. Creamy inside…dipped in chocolate…sandwich cookie. I could write a poem about it. Hope you have a great weekend!

      You too, Julia!

  18. Bugarska Leto March 16, 2012 at 7:13 pm #

    Absolutely lovely, Lauren! I’ve got a friend who’s in love with the green and is born on St. Patrick’s. This couldn’t get more perfect. Thanks for this recipe!

    These are fabulous! And how exciting that you’re starting a ‘sort’ of new life. One day, I hope to be able to work from home too. As a suggestion, maybe don’t force yourself into following traditional work day hours. I read in National Geographic that everyone’s productive time is different. For example, I do much better if I putter around in the mornings and don’t get started until about 11…then I rock it out until 630 or 7pm. You may be the same :)

    BUZZED!

    Wow these are so cute and looks so delicious!

  21. Joanne March 17, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

    it’s ALWAYS all about the buttercream in my opinion! These sound seriously awesome. Especially to a mint chocolate fanatic like myself.

    Any tips you get on staying out the kitchen and the cookie jar…I need em :P

    Happy last day of work and Happy first day of your successful venture!

    These look perfect! Such a great idea. I wanted to make something for St Patricks day, but couldn’t think of anything.

    I think getting dressed and getting out of the house (even for a few minutes) is really key. I’m really guilty of this and get stuck in ruts sometimes. Good luck! :)

    Thanks, Viviane!
