Cookie Monster Brownie Sandwich Cookies


Rice Krispy Treat Bunny Treats"C is for Cookie," and that's good enough for us! Who doesn't love the Cookie Monster? This Halloween treat is only cute, and not scary. Your kids will go cookie crazy when they see this fun edible craft. This treat is double the fun with two brownie cookies filled with buttercream icing, topped with candy eyes.
Using our Triple Brownie Cookie recipe to make soft, chewy and chocolaty cookies and our Basic Buttercream Frosting to slather in the middle. Kids can get as messy as they want with this - the less perfect it is, the more it looks like the real Cookie Monster! 
This is a fun, hands-on craft that is as much fun to make as it is to eat.   Kids will love making this classic character. This recipe makes 12 sandwich cookies.


  • Candy eyes
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (we left these out of our recipe)

For Buttercream Icing: 


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Once combined, slowly add dry ingredients until fully mixed.
  4. Take a heaping tablespoon and drop batter onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. The cookies will be set, but still soft. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Once cookies have cooled, spread buttercream icing on one cookie and top with another cookie to make a “sandwich."
  7. Spoon buttercream frosting in a pastry bag and use a star tip to "glue" the two candy eyes. If you don't have a pastry bag, a gallon-sized plastic bag with a hole cut into the corner works just as well.
