25 Days of Treats: Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Lets be honest, these are just giant Oreos, and they are delicious. For some reason I always thought these were hard to make, but they are the opposite of hard! These are another treat my mother-in-law makes around the holidays, though this is not her recipe. I found a recipe for these in two different ward cookbooks, so I sort of merged them together to make my own.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
  • 1 cube margarine (or butter)
  • 1 box devils food cake ( I used a dark chocolate cake mix, and taste great! I am now imagining what it will taste with other flavored cakes mixes...)
  • 1 large egg
Melt the margarine and cool to room temperature. Add cake mix and stir together. Add the egg and mix until cookie dough forms. Roll into one inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet (parchment paper worked great!). Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes. Do not over cook, these cookies are meant to be soft. Let cool before putting on filling.

  • 1/2 (4 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  •  2 TBSP butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Spread filling on the bottom of half the cookies and top with remaining half of cookies. Store in the refrigerator, but they are also very good frozen!
