Choco Nut Sandwich Cookies

Choco Nut Sandwich Cookies (Level 2)

¾ cup ground hazelnuts
2 eggs
1 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)

Chocolate creme:
7 tablespoons butter
1 to 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg yolk

For dipping:
Sugar free dark or semi sweet chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 400. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat the eggs and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the nuts and drop the
batter with a spoon to small balls on prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven, put another baking sheet on top and turn the cookies with the paper upside down. Remove the paper, you may need to brush it with a little bit of cold water so the cookies come off.

Stir together the ingredients for the chocolate creme, mixing until well combined.

Make sandwiches with creme between two cookies. Dip the cookie sandwiches in the melted chocolate. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
