1 hr 15 min



1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons water

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt


3 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 to 4 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, 3/4 cup butter and water in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes, until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips; cook, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time, until mixture is smooth. Stir in all remaining cookie ingredients.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all filling ingredients except milk in mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread about 2 teaspoons frosting onto flat-side of one cookie; top with second cookie, flat-side down. Squeeze together gently. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Made these for a holiday potluck with rave reviews and requests for the recipe. It made a little less than stated but I made 3 batches so not an issue. The cookies are think so it's a big mouthful but the inside vanilla filling is delicious and held up overnight and into the afternoon without disappearing. I will make these again.
