Brownie Cookies sandwiched with a rich Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting! We all have our favorite chocolate obsession.

What’s mine? Okay, well I have several but one of them is most definitely a chewy, chocolaty brownie with chocolate cream cheese frosting. It’s one of my chocolate loves. With that said, how could I resist making it into cookie form?brownie cookie sandwiches with chocolate cream cheese frosting

I created 3 separate batches of chocolate cookies while making this recipe. The first batch was too rich and chocolaty for my liking, the second batch I made with melted chocolate and wasn’t a fan of the texture of what seemed like a meringue shell around the cookie and the third, these, were just what I was looking for.

Soft and chewy, and of course with just the right amount of chocolate and cream cheese frosting. They remind me a lot of those cookies that many refer to as “Oreos” or “homemade Oreos” (which I’m not sure why those are called Oreos – the only taste they have in common with an actual Oreo cookie is the chocolate flavor and I guess the similar look.

Other than that the cream cheese frosting, buttery flavor and softness of the cookie is  nothing like an Oreo).  These are what you’d imagine a brownie to be like, but in chewy cookie form, with a Lucius chocolate cream cheese frosting sandwiched between them. Simply put, they are indulgent and decadently delicious. Enjoy!

Brownie Cookies

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, whip together butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  • Add in eggs one at a time, mixing until combined after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Transfer dough to an airtight container and chill until firm enough to shape into balls, about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees during the last 10 minute of dough chilling.
  • Remove cookie dough from fridge, scoop dough out and shape into balls, about the size of a golf ball. Transfer rolled balls to Silpat lined cookie sheets and bake in preheated oven 10 - 11 minutes (transfer dough balls that aren't currently baking to refrigerator to chill until ready to bake).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely then spread frosting along bottom side of one cookie, then sandwich to the bottom side of another cookie. Store in an airtight container.
  • For the Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer on medium speed, whip together cream cheese and butter until smooth and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in vanilla and powdered sugar, then sift in cocoa powder and mix until smooth and fluffy, about 1 minute.

      Terri – yes parchment paper should work great. Sorry I should have added that in the recipe =).

  • Angela @ Another Bite Please

    i love a cookie sandwich…and the stack of cookies like that….oh goodness…yum.

  • Wendy

    I would love one of these with a cup of coffee right now! I guess I will have to go bake them :)

  • Curry and Comfort

    What a fun cookie sandwich. I would have had fun trying all three batches. :)

  • Ashley

    Chocolate cream cheese frosting sounds fantastic! Oh man, I’m going to have to try making it very soon!

      Warning to you – it’s dangerously addictive. I think about the stuff all the time, sad but true =).

  • Rebekah

    Those sound so amazing. Wow. I’ll have to find an excuse to make them!

    Photography question – how do you get the white background like that? Is it post-photo editing or a method of setting up the shot?

    • Jaclyn

      Jaclyn Bell

      I do it a few ways – lately the background has just been the snow out my window that continues off of the white table. Last week I used a long white board I got from home depot then layed a piece of glass on top of that and then I used natural daylight on the left and the lowel ego light (which isn’t a must I just have bad lighting where I live in the winter) in the background. White marker board can give you the same reflective effect like the glass+white table. I wish I knew how to use photoshop well enough that I could do that with photoshop though =). Unfortunately I only know the basics.

    “The first batch was too rich and chocolaty for my liking…” — that would be very hard to do for me :)

    But seriously, I kwym about people making homemade oreos and calling it an Oreo. No, it’s a brownie-ish cookie. Your cookies are spot-on perfect looking and sounding in every way. Thanks for going thru all that choc & butter to get here!

      I know I’m like the odd woman out – I’m more of a milk chocolate lover =). Thanks for your comment Averie!
