36 sandwich



1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt


Decorator candies and sugars


3 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 to 3 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, sugar, and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  3. STEP 3

    Place candies in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Dip balls in candies to coat one side. Place, candy-side up, 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. (Do not over bake.) Let stand 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, peanut butter and 2 tablespoons butter in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

  6. STEP 6

    To make sandwich cookies, spread about 2 teaspoons filling onto bottom-side of 1 cookie, top with second cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies.
