These cookies are so festive, rich and chocolatey, and make for the perfect Halloween treat. The chocolate cookie is tender and flavorful and pairs so perfect with the fluffy and sweet vanilla buttercream. If you aren’t sold yet, then maybe this will do the trick – they are SO easy to make 🙂 I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
Decorated Halloween Cookies
There is no limit to the details and creativity that can be added to these festive and delicious treats. Feel free to make a royal icing to decorate the top of the sandwich cookie. You can find my full royal icing recipe here.
You can also roll the sides of the cookies in sprinkles so that festive halloween themed sprinkles adhere to the buttercream on the sides of the cookie and add a pop of color.
Why Do I Need To Chill The Dough?
Chilling cookie dough, while sometimes can be a pain especially when you want to get to the decorating part of the process, is SO worth it. Never skip this step when it’s called for. Chilling the cookie dough will give us a better end result texture and shape. When we chill the dough, the fat (butter), solidifies so that when the cookies bake in the oven the butter melts slower resulting in tender cookies that hold their shape much better.
Chilled cookie dough is also so much easier to work with. Working with a warm cookie dough and trying to cut out delicate shapes then transfer the shapes from the work surface to the prepared baking sheet, you risk loosing the cookies nice shape.
These cookies are going to make for the perfect Halloween treats! And the best part is that you can reuse this recipe anytime of year and just switch up the cookie shapes and the filling color. I hope that you enjoy these chocolatey, rich, decadent, tender, and oh so adorable Chocolate Halloween Sandwich Cookies.Yum
