A not-too-sweet, crispy, crunchy almond cookie sandwiched with a rich, creamy chocolate almond spread from Hershey’s. 

Today’s recipe is the second one I’ve created using Hershey’s new spreads. It comes in three delicious flavors, chocolate, chocolate hazelnut, and the one I used in this recipe, chocolate almond. Hershey’s is giving away to one lucky Barbara Bakes reader a Hershey’s Spreads package. Details on how you can enter the giveaway are at the bottom of this post.

When I was deciding on a fun way to spread the Chocolate Almond Spread, the Almond Cookie Crisps I posted two years ago came to mind. They’re a thin, crispy, crunchy cookie, and I knew they’d be wonderful with some Hershey’s Chocolate Almond Spread in the middle. Sort of like a thin Milano cookie with sliced almonds. My brother and his family were visiting for the weekend and everyone gave these cookies a thumbs up

I was a little concerned that the chocolate spread would soften the cookies if I put them in a Ziploc bag overnight, but the next morning they were as crispy and tasty as the day they were baked. My husband said they were perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning.

These cookies are quick and easy to make, but if you don’t have time to make the Almond Cookie Crisps, you can buy the cookies at a Chinese bakery, then just dress them up with the spread.

Hershey’s spreads are available in stores now. For more information about their new spreads, visit Hershey’s Spreads online.
