How To Make Spooky Cookie Sandwich 

These chocolate cookies make great sandwich cookies! These are basic chocolate cookies using cocoa powder so it’s easy to put together just by raiding your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator for ingredients. 

To make these cookies, just mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another. Combine the two by adding the dry to the wet to create the cookie dough. Form and bake to make the cookies. 

While the cookies cool down, you can make the vanilla filling. These can be made with your choice of colors and even flavors using extracts and food coloring! We choose orange because black and orange are classic Halloween colors. Smear the filling onto one cooled cookie, top with another cookie, and you’ve got a spooky cookie sandwich to bite into. 

How To Store Spooky Cookie Sandwich 

Cookies are easy to store and the storage container can be a simple jar with a lid or any container that you can close. Airtight is always the preferred form of lid closure but classic cookie jars allow airflow so that your cookies can absorb some moisture to become softer. If you’re a crispy cookie kind of person, air-tight is the way to store these Halloween-themed treats.
