Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookies | #CookieWeek
 
Seriously scrumptious Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookies that will impress your friends and put a huge smile on your face!
Serves: 18 cookies
Ingredients
For the Cookie Portion:
  • 1 and ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 ounce finely grated semi sweet chocolate
For the Frosting Portion:
  • 3 ounces semi sweet chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 and ½ cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
Instructions
For the Cookie Portion:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, unsweetened cocoa, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In your stand mixer combine the butter and sugar, whisk until fluffy and pale. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Beat in half the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk and beat again. Beat in the rest of the flour mixture until everything is well combined. Stir in the chocolate.
  5. Use a teaspoon and scoop small balls of batter on the cookie sheets, leaving a gap for a bit of spread. You should be able to get about 36 bits.
  6. At this point I highly recommend popping the dough in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, but preferably 60 minutes. If you don't do this the cookies will spread too much and be too flat. You're call though. If you like flat sandwich cookies knock yourself out.
  7. Remove the cookie sheets from the freezer and pop them in the oven. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Then remove them from the cookie sheet and let them cool on wire racks.
For the Frosting Portion:
  1. In a medium sized saucepan combine the chocolate, butter, brown sugar, and milk. Cook over medium-low heat to let the sugar dissolve. Then allow it to bubble for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and then add the confectioners' sugar a little at a time. I just whisked mine in. Worked perfectly but you could do it with a stand mixer if you like.
Putting it all together:
  1. Spread a big dollop of the frosting on the inside of one cookie, take another cookie and place the inside down on the frosting. Give a little press. Shove in your piehole.
  2. Serve with a big old I love Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookie Smile!
