Chocolate Brownie Raspberry Sorbet Cookie Sandwiches ~ #CreativeCookieExchange

Life is better with fresh baked cookies - especially these Chocolate Brownie Raspberry Sorbet Cookie Sandwiches.



The #CrreativeCookieExchange is baking chocolate cookies this month.  So many wonderful choices, and for some reason I decided to make ice cream sandwiches.  A delicious idea, but something hard to pull off here in Hawaii, since it is always ice cream melting weather.




The cookies themselves are amazing.  Just the a right amount of chocolate, a little crunch on the outside and meltingly good on the inside.  One of my daughters said that they tasted like a Roy's Chocolate Souffl√© - high praise indeed.  And so easy to make. Once you have melted the chocolate, within a few steps you can have cookies in the oven.




I choose to sandwich my cookies with Raspberry Sorbetto.  My choice is La Gelateria from right here in Honolulu.  It is the perfect combination of tart and sweet, that packs a fantastic raspberry punch. This sorbetto paired beautifully with the intense chocolate from the cookies.





So even though I could not seem to get a photo before we had a meltdown, this was the kind of problem that you don't mind having.  I mean, really, what a tragedy that you have to eat a chocolate brownie raspberry sorbetto cookie sandwich before it melts, maybe even two.
