. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat the

Bittersweet Chocolate Chips (1 1/3 cups)
Drop cookie dough by level tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake cookies until puffed and golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly, then transfer cookies to rack to cool completely.
To make the filling, place
Bittersweet Chocolate (2/3 cup)
Creamy Peanut Butter (1/4 cup)
Powdered Confectioners Sugar (2 Tbsp)
Coarse Kosher Salt (1/4 tsp)

Spread about 1 rounded teaspoonful of the chocolate-peanut butter filling on the flat side of one cookie. Top with a second cookie, forming a sandwich. Repeat with remaining filling and cookies.
