Soft Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies

Soft and brownie-like, these chocolate mint sandwich cookies are sure to be a hit at any Christmas party!

I seem to be a little obsessed with sandwich cookies as this is the third sandwich cookie recipe in a row I’ve posted! First we had grain-free chewy ginger sandwich cookies with lemon and then the baci di dama.

These soft chocolate mint sandwich cookies are by far the least healthy of all three. We all have to splurge every now and then, right? ;) The other two sandwich cookie recipes are gluten-free so I went with 100% whole grain this time with a mint buttercream filling. It turns out buttercream isn’t my thing at all so next time, I’ll make these cookies plain! They’d also be great with just some plain chocolate sandwiched between the two cookies. Or with some added chocolate chips to the batter.

What I love about these cookies is how brownie-like they are! The secret seems to be adding melted chocolate to the batter. I had always avoided making those types of cookies in the past just because I figured the cookies didn’t need any more added sugar. So I just took away all the unrefined or granulated sugar in these and only used some brown sugar (you could also use coconut sugar!)

    Old post but these look perfect for a friend! Can I make the dough a day ahead before baking? I’m short on time this week. Normally I would do it but the room temperature eggs is making me question my decision!

      Sorry for the slow reply! I haven’t tried it but I’m pretty sure it’d be fine to make the dough a day or two ahead of time. :) Hope your friend will enjoy them!

    Is it just me or is the oven temperature missing from this post?

      So sorry, Jessica! Between lines 5 and 6, it should say, “Preheat the oven to 350°F.” Thank you for pointing this out! :) I’ll write Katrina now and get that corrected.

    Chocolate sandwich cookies are my favorite and I often cook them, but I have never tried to add mint into the recipe. Is it really tasty? I don`t like mint that is why I wonder what other product can substitute it.

      Sorry for the slow reply, Maria! You can totally leave out the mint with no problem at all. :) And I think it’s tasty but I love mint!
