Devilish Cocoa Sandwiches

Ever heard of a Suzie Q? They have to be my mom's favorite sweet snack of all time. She LOVES those little chocolate sandwiches. So, when I came across this recipe while looking around one day, I added it to my favorites, knowing that one day, I would have to make them for her. These little chocolate sandwiches are SO yummy. What I love about them is that they are not too sweet. You can eat one, and won't feel a sugar overload. The filling is SUPER simple...let's see, it's a can of vanilla frosting! My mom told me these were so good, that she wants these every year on her birthday from now on.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (12-ounce) can whipped vanilla frosting - I used Duncan Hines.
  1. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper. Heat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to blend. Stir in buttermilk, egg, and melted butter. Stir with a wooden spoon until just blended.
  3. Spoon some of the mixture into a large resealable plastic bag. Snip a ½-inch corner from the bag. Pipe 3 ½ x 1-inch logs, about 2 inches apart on prepared pan, about 12 per pan. Bake until firm to the touch, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  4. Spoon the frosting into a 2nd resealable bag. Snip a ½-inch corner from the bag. Pipe some of the frosting onto the flat side of half of the cookies. Sandwich with another cookie, flat side against frosting. Continue with remaining cookies and frosting.
