Don't panic, but Halloween is next week. Instead of figuring out the kids' costumes (more on that tomorrow), I decided to bake the chocolate wafers with peanut butter fudge cookie sandwiches. Halloween versions of the sandwiches. Yes, there are dessert sandwiches in Emeril's Kicked-Up Sandwiches: Stacked with Flavor. Several of my fellow bloggers made the red velvet whoopie pies first, but not me.
Hubby loves peanut butter fudge. Any place we visit that sells peanut butter fudge, he buys it. He even made it for me when we started dating. I was appalled that the required an entire jar of marshmallow fluff. I didn't even know fluff existed until then! Fluff or not, hubby's peanut fudge was pretty tasty.
I'm always looking for an excuse to use my fall themed cookie cutters. (Sophia and I have made ghost and witch biscuits once or twice.) The chocolate wafers were tasty on their own. One of my ghosts broke his arm and Sophia happily gobbled him up. The wafers have the perfect amount of cocoa and just a hint of sweetness, perfect for someone who enjoys dark chocolate.
Emeril's peanut butter fudge recipe did call for a jar of marshmallow fluff. The sweet fudge complimented the chocolate wafers perfectly. Since it's almost Halloween, I added food coloring to turn the peanut fudge orange. Brown and orange are Halloween colors. I think it looks rather striking.
The family gobbled up the sandwiches, but I did manage to save a few for later. Pair a sandwich cookie with a glass of cold milk and you've got the perfect afternoon snack. The cookies were rather time intensive, but totally worth the it!
