Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe

These cookies freeze well, so it's easy to keep some on hand for last-minute munching. In summer, I often make them larger to use for ice cream sandwiches.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:36 servings


  • 2 packages devil's food cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mixes, oil and eggs until well blended. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Do not flatten.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks (cookies will flatten as they cool).
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Beat in sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread or pipe filling on the bottoms of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: about 6 dozen.

"I split the recipe down the middle, making half with a strawberry cake mix and half with a Devil's Food Cake mix. I halved the filling recipe also, filling half with that and half with some canned chocolate frosting. Fast and fun!"

"These are very easy to make and better than oreos. Only change I made was used the marshmellow creame filling found on here for the oatmeal sanwich cookies bc I dont like creame cheese."

"My teenage daughter loves making these cookies and they don't last long around here. She has to hide them if we're expecting visitors. Only question I would have is about the yield. I have never actually got 6 dozen and I didn't think my cookies were overly huge. Is it 6 dozen sandwiches or 6 dozen cookies that yield 3 dozen sandwiches. Another note is that there is usually filling left over (that's easy to use!)"

"These cookies are good with the frosting filling, but they're absolutely FANTASTIC to use for ice cream sandwiches. I've gotten many requests for them over the years, and they make a cool summer treat. Use about 1/2 cup of ice cream per two cookies. I've experimented with different flavors of ice cream (mint chip is a favorite) as well as cake mixes (cherry chip with vanilla ice cream is divine)."
