Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies:

Ingredients: (Printable Recipe below)

  •  1 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 3/4 C margarine (1 and a half sticks)
  • 2 C semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 C flour



Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.

In a large pan on the stove over medium high heat, melt the brown sugar, water and margarine together and stir. Heat until it boils.

Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips. Mix until melted.

Beat your eggs with a fork and then stir them into the chocolate mixture.

Add the dry ingredients and stir them in until completely combined.

Roll into one inch balls and drop onto a cookie sheet (preferably with a Silpat mat). If you don’t have a Silpat mat make sure you have a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for about 7-8 minutes. Cookie should be just starting to have cracks in it.

Use a ziploc bag full of your frosting to squeeze about a Tablespoon onto a cookie. Sandwich with another cookie.

Then eat!

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ C brown sugar
  • ¾ C margarine
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 C chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs

Peppermint Frosting:

  • 4 C Powdered Sugar
  • 1/3 C soft butter (not margarine)
  • About 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • Green food coloring (just as a note, I don’t usually make mine such a bright green. More of a mint is better.)

Combine above ingredients until smooth. Pipe onto cookie and put another cookie on top.

    Did not turn out at all :( makes me so sad to waste good ingredients. The Frosting was way too watery and took well over 3 cups of powdered sugar to get a thicker consistency. The cookies themselves spread and ran all over my cookie sheets. I made sure to follow the recipe to a T (I am very careful when trying new recipes) The cookies (that I was able to salvage) also taste very bland…not sure where I went wrong. Bummer!

      Bummer! Did you use margarine or butter? Butter will make them spread more. And did you add extra flour? I had to add more flour to make them so that I could roll them into balls.
