These taste like the real deal! Perfect with a glass of milk and a youthful attitude.

20 to 25 sandwich cookies

Prep: 15 min.
Cook: 10 min.

  • For chocolate cookies:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup Black Onyx Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter (1 1/4 sticks)
  • 1 large egg
  • For creamy filling:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening*
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 tsp. Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract


*Butter can be substituted for vegetable shortening.


For chocolate cookies: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Set rack in middle of oven. In mixing bowl, thoroughly mix flour, cocoas, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugars. On low speed, add butter then add egg. Continue mixing until dough comes together in a mass (about 3 min.). Place 2 tsp. batter at a time on a parchment-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Use the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten dough. Bake for 9 min., rotating once. Set on baking racks to cool.

For creamy filling: Mix butter and shortening on low speed, gradually beating in the sugar and vanilla. When combined, turn mixer on high and beat for 2 to 3 min. until light and fluffy. To assemble cookies, put filling in a gallon-sized zip top bag. Squeeze all filling to one corner, and cut off the corner of bag. Pipe about 1 tsp. of filling into the center of one cookie then sandwich with another cookie.

My daughter and friends say it should be a "6 star" recipe. I have never heard of Onyx chocolate but had to try this recipe. First time making it! ..AND we used gluten free flour, unbleached sugar, dairy free butter, vanilla bean paste (Savory Spice), and extra butter in place of the shortening request. This was to accommodate color/chemical/dairy/gluten free dietary concerns. The only change we made to the amounts was adding extra vanilla to the cream middle. I will be ordering more Onyx and the great delight of the girls...more of this recipe. Great recipe and great selling suggestion! Thank you!

I can't believe how much these taste like the real thing! They are delicious and very sweet. I like making the cookies just a little smaller than the recipe suggests (1 tsp. instead of 2 tsp. scoops) so you end up with one to two bite cookies. A little of bit of this sweet cookie goes a long way.
