Double Chocolate Oatmeal Sandwiches

December 19, 2012Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2012

These Double Chocolate Oatmeal Sandwiches are absolutely scrumptious! This cookie combines oatmeal, chocolate chips and walnuts in one extremely amazing cookies. But wait! There’s a luscious chocolate fudge frosting sandwiched between two of these fantastic cookies. Oatmeal Cookies are wonderful anytime. But the addition of chocolate chips and chocolate frosting make these cookies simply incredible.

I was looking for a way to use up some extra chocolate icing I had saved from making Chocolate Drop Cookies posted a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t want to put it on another chocolate cookie. I found a recipe from an old friend, Mimi Pownall for Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies.

I used that basic recipe, substituted chocolate chips for the peanut butter chips and then added the icing and, voila! A magnificent cookie — one that you will enjoy down to the last crumb.

If you’re looking for chocolatey goodness in every bite consider giving these tasty treats a go. Neither you, nor your family, will be disappointed. I thought they were amazing and had to get them out of my house fast so I wouldn’t eat all of them!

I originally published this recipe in December 2012. My pictures were grainy, blurry, dark, and there was too much stuff in the background causing the pictures to look too busy. It made for really indistinguishable pictures which isn’t what you want on a food blog! I was new to the blogging world that year and was using a cheap iPhone 3 camera.

I recently remade this recipe for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza 2014 (December 2014). I retook the pictures so you can have a better idea of what these fabulous cookies really look like. They make great gifts during the holidays.

Add oatmeal and UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens any kind of baked goods. Add walnuts and chocolate chips.

Stir all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. (Using an electric mixer to stir flour into baked goods causes a tougher result).

Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll mixture into balls and place on prepared baking sheets. If desired, you can press the cookies with a fork in criss-cross fashion for a flatter cookie.

I used these ingredients to make the icing. I didn’t have cream on hand so I substituted milk. It doesn’t work nearly as well as cream.

To make icing: melt butter. Add cream, vanilla, cocoa and powdered sugar. Mix with an electric mixer until well mixed and there are no more lumps from the powdered sugar in the icing.

Spread icing on bottom of one oatmeal cookie. This is a really thick and fudgy chocolate icing.

  5. Roll into balls and place about 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. (I just sprayed them well with cooking spray).
  6. Bake until light brown, 10-12 minutes for soft cookies, 12-14 minutes for crisp cookies.
  7. Once cool, spread icing generously on the bottom of a cookie.
  8. Top with another cookie.
CHOCOLATE ICING:
  1. Mix together and spread on the bottoms of cooled cookies.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: These cookies took about 25 minutes to bake in my oven because they were large.

NOTE: Mom always used cocoa rather than chocolate squares.

NOTE: Preparation time includes spreading the icing on the cookies.

NOTE: Milk does not work nearly as well as cream in the icing.

NOTE: If you want a flatter cookie to work with, press the cookies down with a fork in criss-cross fashion before baking.
