Chocolate, one of my favourite topics. These chocolate chip cookie sandwiches are just amazing and they remind me of Snickers, chocolate, peanut butter & caramel is a great combination! This recipe is a great soft & chewy biscuit and you can change it up with your choice of white, milk or dark chocolate chips. They are also quite quick to prepare in the grand scheme of baking.
I think they make a great dessert or tea party snack and if it’s really hot you could always pop the cookies in the fridge for an hour before eating. Great for summer!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches
115g melted butter
200g soft brown sugar
1 egg + 1 yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 160 C. Line baking trays with parchment paper.
Sift flour, cocoa, bicarb, baking powder & salt and mix well.
Melt butter in a microwave safe container.
Put brown sugar & eggs in a mixing bowl & mix until pale.
Add all the melted butter and a little flour at a time while mixing in a low speed,
Add chocolate chips and mix in.
Roll cookie dough into balls. To ensure that you get equal sized cookies to match up I recommend that you weigh each ball. I weighed mine to 28g each.
Place 6 round balls onto a lined baking tray and flatten a little with your fingers while still keeping them round. They will spread, don’t try to squeeze more on at a time.
Bake for 8-10 minutes while you weigh & roll the next batch of cookies.
Allow cookies to cool on the tray before removing as they will still be soft.
100g softened butter
200g icing sugar
1 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1/2 a tin caramel
Beat the butter for 2 mins until paler in colour.
Sift icing sugar into butter and beat for 6 mins.
Add peanut butter and mix for another 2 mins.
Choose a piping tip and fill a piping bag with the icing. Pipe a circle of icing onto the cookies.
Fill a piping bag with caramel and snip a small hole. Pipe a blob of caramel into the middle of the circle of icing and place a lid on top.
I decorated the cookies with a gold edible paint stripe and some small gold splatter.
