Chocolaty Double Crunchers
Chocolaty Double Crunchers are delightful sandwich cookies that are nothing short of fabulous! The cookies are made with coconut, oatmeal, and crushed Corn Flakes. Then they are filled with a spectacular chocolate chip-cream cheese filling that puts these cookies way over the top.
The cookies are quite substantial and hearty since they’re made with both oatmeal and Corn Flakes. I loved these delicious cookies and couldn’t get enough of them! Alas, most of them I gave away.
I was looking for an easy non-messy dessert recipe to make for my neighbors when they moved in a few weeks ago. I preferred making cookies rather than pies, cakes, cobblers or messy desserts. I thought cookies would be easy to grab and eat whenever.
I saw this recipe that I had copied down from my daughter-in-law’s Taste of Home Ultimate Cookie Collection cookbook. (I had given it to her a few years ago). I knew it was a good time to try it because I still had Corn Flakes on hand from when I made Ranger Cookies recently.
I made a few minor changes to the recipe to bump up the taste but that’s all. The Chocolaty Filling in this recipe is to die for! It is so good that I have since used the icing on another recipe and it turned out pretty spectacular on that one too.
If you’re looking for a wholesome, hearty sandwich cookie with a delicious chocolaty filling then you need to try Chocolaty Double Crunchers some time. The recipe isn’t difficult. The filling is particularly easy and spreads quite easily on the cookies. I had enough icing to apply it very thickly, like for Whoopie Pies.
This recipe only makes 1 1/2 dozen sandwich cookies, though. If you need more than that amount at one time you will have to double or triple the recipe. So why don’t you make up a batch of these tasty cookies for your family, and sit down with a tall glass of milk and enjoy?
Chocolaty Double Crunchers are to die for! Love that Chocolaty filling.
These sandwich cookies are made with lots of oatmeal, Corn Flakes and coconut which makes them quite hearty, thick, and substantial. You will be filled up pretty quickly after just one of these cookies.
Chocolaty Double Crunchers are crunchy cookies with a creamy chocolate and cream cheese filling inside. I piled on the Chocolaty Filling.
Chocolaty Double Crunchers rock! They are really amazing. You will be drooling after eating just one of these tasty treats!
Here’s what I did.
Soften butter and place in large mixing bowl. Add brown sugar and white sugar, an egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt.
Mix with an electric mixer to combine.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add oatmeal and crushed Corn Flakes. I usually crunch the Corn Flakes in my hands as it only takes a couple of minutes.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll oatmeal cookie mixture into balls and place on sprayed cookie sheets. Dip the bottom of a glass in granulated sugar and press down on top of cookies to flatten.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. The original recipe says for about 8-10 minutes. My oven took longer. Allow cookies to cool completely.
To make Chocolaty Filling: Place a bag of chocolate chips either in the microwave to melt or on top of a burner over very low heat. Stir frequently to help dissolve chocolate chips.
Meanwhile, soften cream cheese and place in mixing bowl. (I actually made a double batch of the frosting and used part of it in another recipe so amounts shown will be more than the original recipe).
Add powdered sugar.
Add the melted chocolate mixture into the cream cheese and powdered sugar and mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Place a couple of tablespoons of Chocolaty Filling on the bottom of one of the cookies.
Find another cookie that matches the cookie in size and shape and place it firmly on top of the Chocolaty Filling. I used a knife to swirl the filling on the cookies. It’s not fancy, but it works!
To serve: place Chocolaty Double Crunchers on a plate and enjoy! Chocolate lovers will love these crunchy oatmeal cookies!
There’s enough Chocolaty Filling in the recipe to layer the icing on about half an inch thick! I loved how thick the icing was on these cookies.
Prepare yourselves for a sugar high! These marvelous cookies are great for office parties or functions. Take along a tray of these cookies to your next meeting and watch them disappear! Your kids will love these delicious cookies served as afternoon snacks!
Don’t Chocolaty Double Crunchers look marvelous? These cookies are heavenly!
