The Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

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 🙂

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!

How to Make These Mini Cookies

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 🙂

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.

How to Make Chocolate Buttercream

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 🙂

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 🙂  Just kidding. Enjoy!!

    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!
