Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Cookie Sandwiches

We made peanut butter filled brownie cookie sandwiches!

Oh want us to say something more than that?  You're not sold on the peanut butter filled brownie cookie sandwich part??


(Seriously though?  You know we'll blabber on some more just because we happen to be EXCELLENT blabber-ers, but we are kinda assuming you're already sold.  You know, on the peanut butter filled brownie cookie sandwich part.)

We threw these little babies together while also throwing together baby lobster rolls, baby crab cakes and baby corn on the cobs. 

What?  So we like a theme party now and then.  Is that a crime?!

Long story short, we weren't tooootally paying attention when we made these.  We were distracted.  There was all the wee sized finger foods.  And also baby pools.  And also possibly an adult beverage.

But whatever - long story short (um...again) - these things turned out fabulous even without our full undivided attention.  Really, should we have doubted that peanut butter cream slathered between chocolate brownie cookies would be anything less than?!

Right.  We didn't think so.  So like we said.

Print Recipe

For cookies:
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or chocolate of your choice)
3 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

For peanut butter filling:
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats and set aside.

Place 1 cup of chocolate chips and butter in a glass bowl and place in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until melted & smooth.  Set aside.

In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine eggs, sugar and vanilla & mix on medium speed until pale and creamy, 5-7 minutes.  Add in flour, baking powder, melted chocolate mixture, remaining chocolate chips and continue beating until fully incorporated.  Drop generously rounded tablespoons of the batter onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 1-2 inches apart.  Bake for about 9–11 minutes until cracked on top.  Cool cookies completely on wire racks.

While the cookies are cooling, make the peanut butter filling.  In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and confectioners sugar together until pale and fluffy.  Add in salt, peanut butter & vanilla and mix until combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk heavy cream until medium stiff peaks form.  Fold gently into the peanut butter cream cheese mixture. 

To assemble the cookie sandwiches, spread a generous dollop of peanut butter filling on the underside of one brownie cookie and place a second brownie cookie bottom side down on top.  Cookies can keep be stored chilled in an airtight container.

These look so tasty!! Love this!

These cookie sandwiches look so delicious and I was so excited to make them, but the brownie cookies didn't turn out :( The batter was super thin! Perhaps there should be more than 1/4 cup of flour???? Or maybe I just skipped a step?
