These Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookies with chocolate filling are perfect for any occasion. I highly recommend making a double batch!
Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookies are one of my favourite cookie recipes to make for special occasions and holidays. They taste amazing and will impress your friends and family.
These cookies were originally made for cookie week which was an event I used to host. Those events are typically fun for participants but a bit stressful on the event planner so I decided not to host those types of things any more.
I’ll never stop making cookies though. They help relieve stress, am I right?!
Honestly, I find baking so cathartic, especially during the holiday season. Getting in the kitchen is such a stress reliever for me.
Plus the house smells amazing while you’re baking which is a huge perk. Not going to lie, I love the smell of chocolate cookies baking. So good!
These chocolate fudge brownie sandwich cookies are filled with an icing so every bite in a rich, creamy delight.
If I’m being honest, I had some while they were still warm, room temperature and cold. Let’s just say they are good at any temperature and I now need to let out the waistline on all my pants.
I really hope you love these chocolate cookies as much we do. Let me know what you think of them!

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookies
For the Cookie Portion:
For the Cookie Portion:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, unsweetened cocoa, and salt. Set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
- 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:
- 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.
- Serve with a big old I love Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sandwich Cookie Smile!
