Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

September 30, 2012


The great thing about being able to bake is that there’s never a chance that our sugar cravings will go unsatisfied. In the mood for chocolate chip cookies? Gimme 30 minutes. Want some brownies? Let me see if there’s cocoa in the pantry. Feel like going to the store for a package of coffee cake? Ha! Almost never.

The way I see it, this will either be a great thing for my future kids, or a really, really bad thing. I’m envisioning horrific dentist visits and childhood obesity issues. Although on the other hand, I could just be incredibly militant about tooth brushing and enroll my kids in every single sport on the planet. Yeah…that’ll work. Probably.

I’ll definitely have to figure something out though, because treats like these peanut butter and chocolate cookie sandwiches are going to be really hard for my kids to resist. Hell, they would be hard for anyone to resist. I mean, c’mon…crackly, chewy peanut butter cookies layered with rich, gooey chocolate frosting and taste like Reese’s peanut butter cups? Om nom nom nom nom!

As I type this, Dan is collapsed in his computer chair groaning theatrically about his aching stomach. His shirt front is covered in sugary crumbs, and his eyes are slightly glazed over. But, as I watch in amusement, I see him reach for his 6th cookie sandwich, dunk it in his glass of milk, and blissfully take a huge bite of sugary goodness. Yup. That’s how good these are.

    Great hand-modeling Dan! Seeing the pic definitely made me look down and see if my brass rat was facing the right way too. PS- cookies look INSANE. love all cookie sandwiches.

      Haha, thanks Melissa! Dan was a little concerned about having his brass rat showing in the picture, but I told him to stop being so paranoid…
