This Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe Puts a Sweet, Holiday Spin on a Classic

Move over ice cream — these sugar cookies are filled with rich vanilla and pink frosting!

We all know the nostalgic ice cream sandwich cookies popular throughout the summer months. Well now, winter gets its own, too. Spread some cheer this season with this sugary and colorful chocolate sandwich cookies recipe. And to make it easier, we used store-bought sugar cookie dough and canned vanilla frosting for a 30-minute baking sesh. The dough combines with flour and unsweetened, melted chocolate. Then, its rolled out, cut into perfectly round cookies, and baked to chewy perfection. And for the filling, all you need is a few drops of red food dye into half of the vanilla frosting. This way, some of your cookies will have a pink filling and some white. Serve these sandwich cookies alongside a glass of milk to dunk them in! Or, be adventurous and pair them with cheese.

You can customize this chocolate sandwich cookies recipe! Switch out vanilla frosting for chocolate, cinnamon or even birthday cake. Or, use other food dyes for different colored frosting. Tell us below how you experimented!
