The holidays have been over for a few weeks so the sugar overload from all the cookies, fudge, and chocolate-covered everything should be gone by now! That means it is time to share a recipe that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

I love the combination of chocolate and orange, so thought what would be better than to merge them into a cookie. It was a great idea! But how about going one step further and taking two chocolate orange cookies and sandwiching (is that word?!) them together with a super easy ginger cheesecake filling! Brilliant!! (And delicious!!) ENJOY!!
