Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

I first had these cookies when a friend brought them to a church dinner. As soon as I had one I had to find out who brought them, so that I could get the recipes. I went around asking all the ladies who brought them and I finally found out who had made them.

I loved these cookies and my husband’s staff also thought these were really good. They have a little bit of a brownie taste and texture, but yet they are a cookie, and the frosting in the middle makes them even better.

As soon as I saw the recipe, I knew why I liked them. The cookie recipe is very similar to one of my favorite quick and easy cookie recipes and the frosting is basically the same as my all time favorite frosting. Someone was just smart enough put the two together.

The recipe originally called for you to put food coloring in the frosting. My friend just left the frosting white and so did I. However, I think these would be a great quick cookie for the holidays. You could do green and red for Christmas, yellow and pink for spring, orange for fall, etc.

I hope you give these a try. Your family will love them. And thanks Beth for the great cookie recipe.

  8. These look great! I wonder how they would be filled with ice cream?

  9. I had to tell you what fun it was to make these. I was waiting for this recipe to be posted. The only thing was that after it was posted I relized that I did not have the devil’s food cake mix. So, I checked my cookbooks for a recipe for devil’s food cake mix. The only ones I could find were to make the actual cake and I did not think that was going to work. Finally, I found a brownie mix recipe, in was in one of these batch mix books they also give you recipes to use these mixes. One of the recipes for the brownie mix is chewy chocolate cookies. So, I ended up using that recipe for the cookies and they turned out really good. So much so that my husband and children were eating them as fast as I was making them. And I still have alot of brownie mix to make more.

    I just made these for a Christmas cookie party. I was suppose to bring 2 -3 dozen, but the recipe didn’t say how many it made. This is what I found out. If you make 1 inch diameter balls they turn into 3 inch large cookies, and the recipe will make about 2 dozen sandwiches. I really like the 3/4 inch balls (about 1 1/2 teaspoons) and it makes a nice medium size cookie like the ones pictures above. The key is make your balls very very small and you will come out with nice size cookies.
