Recipe by Vino Girl

When I made these for my husband, he called them "the single best thing you've ever made for me." It doesn't get much better than that! These are fairly involved to make, but they are worth the effort. The white frosting layer reminds me of the filling for Oreos. This came from a Southern Living Magazine cookbook.
