Chocolate Sprinkle Sandwich Cookies

The perfect cookie to celebrate a 6th birthday! 

These are great as sandwich cookies or not!  They are equally as good just
as a cookie without the frosting.  I liked them both ways.

I wanted to make them festive.  So I sandwiched them and put a 
lollipop stick in them!  Looks like a celebration to me!
Happy Birthday Syringa!
