Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or grease. Refrigerate 1/3 cup almond milk for use in filling.

Step 2

Combine flour, 1 teaspoon salt and baking soda in medium bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Combine remaining 1 cup almond milk and cocoa in small saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until cocoa dissolves and mixture comes to a simmer. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Beat butter in large mixer bowl until smooth. Add brown sugar and vanilla extract; beat until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time; beating until mixture becomes lighter in color.
