Mini Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buttercream Cookie Sandwiches

It’s no secret that I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter together, you see it on Picky Palate all the time, right? I had to laugh at these photos because my cookie sandwiches look like little hamburgers. Hamburgers or not, these mini cookie sandwiches are downright delicious and I am thrilled to share them with you today ๐Ÿ™‚

I was fighting against the sun setting otherwise I think I would have put sprinkles around the edges, so they don’t look so burger like, lol! Next time!

I whipped up a simple peanut butter cookie dough here. Start by creaming your butter and sugars.

Add a pretty little egg.

Some peanut buttah and vanilla ๐Ÿ™‚

Add your dry ingredients and voila’ ready to bake!

I used my smallest cookie scoop to form my dough.

Bake em’ and let these babies cool.

While the cookies are cooling, let’s prepare the buttercream, shall we?

Butter and powdered sugar ready.

Whisk, whisk, whisk.

Add some fabulous melted chocolate.

Maybe dip your finger in….then whisk that together.

Add a touch more powdered sugar to thicken.

Like so ๐Ÿ™‚

There you have a rich chocolatey buttercream.

You know what to do. Pile it on top of those cooled cookies and sandwich together!

Mmmm, little hamburgers ๐Ÿ™‚  Just kidding. Enjoy!!

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted softened butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup all purpose Gold Medal Flour

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Chocolate Buttercream

1 stick (8 tablespoons) softened unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.

2. Place butter and sugars into your stand mixer beating until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, peanut butter, then vanilla to the mixer, beating until creamy.

3. In a large bowl, mix your flour, salt and baking soda to combine then add to the wet ingredients until just combined. With a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool.

4. To prepare buttercream, place butter and 1 cup powdered sugar into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Place chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted.

Add buttercream to cooled peanut butter cookies sandwiching together. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Oh my gosh those little peanut butter sandwiches look adorable and delicious at the same time! I’m totally with you – I love PB + Chocolate. I love just about any nuts and chocolate, they make such a great combination. And that chocolate buttercream …. I could seriously just eat that by itself ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    These look awesome, I am so making them ths weekend!! Could you please take a pic and show us your small cookie scoop against a coin or something so we can have an idea how small it is? Or is there a number measure on it? Thanks a bunch!!

    Maybe you should play up the hamburger-like appearance and use these as trompe l’oiel desserts! Add some sesame seeds on top, some yellow and red frosting inside… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Chocolate and peanut butter….is there a BETTER combination? I don’t think so.
    I really like how you didn’t do the typical chocolate cookie and peanut butter center. The flipped cookie makes it so much more fun!

    Hey Jenny. Just wanted to tell you that I have always really liked peanut butter cookies, but I’ve tried several that were tasty, but fell apart. To me, they just weren’t the perfect PB cookie! Well, I saw this post and thought I’d give them a try as yours didn’t appear ‘crumbly.’ I made a double batch and they were DELICIOUS!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am soooo happy to have found my ‘perfect’ peanut butter cookie recipe! I made the frosting as well (and should have doubled it as well, as it was so yummy!) and I brought them to a friends house and they were a huge hit! Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
