Chocolate Sandwich Hearts

  • 7 ounces butter
  • 1/3 cup+2Tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa nibs or sprinkles

Chocolate Filling

  • 3 ounces butter
  • 4 ounces chocolate of your choice


Chocolate Sandwich Hearts

  • Cream the butter, sugars and honey with the paddle attachment of your stand mixer (or use softer butter and cream in a bowl with a wooden spoon). Add dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  • Roll your dough out between two sheets of parchment paper (they should each be about the size of your cookie sheet) using a rolling pin. Place your dough between the sheets of paper onto a cookie sheet and chill until firm.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Slide the cooled dough onto your counter. Peel back the top sheet of parchment paper and place it back on the cookie sheet. Cut out your cookies with a cookie cutter. Cut out a window using a smaller cutter in the center of half of the cookies.
  • Beat the egg white with a fork and brush over the top of each cookie with a cut out. Sprinkle cocoa nibs or sprinkles over the egg white (this is optional, but gives the cookies a little extra love)! Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies begin to feel dry on the edges. Allow to cool completely on the cookie sheet.
  • Once cooled, spread chocolate on half of the cookies. Top with a second cookie.

Chocolate Filling

  • Melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave or over a double boiler. Cool until spreadable.
