  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla extract and beat just until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Measure the dough out into 1½ tablespoon portions and roll into balls with your hands. Place the balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and use your palm or the bottom of a glass to press the cookies flat. They should be about ⅓-inch thick.
  • Bake the cookies for 7 to 9 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the cookies have completely cooled, use a pastry bag and piping tip to add about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate frosting to half of the cookies, then sandwich the filling with the remaining cookies.
  • In a small bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips on 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each one, until fully melted. Dip each sandwich cookie halfway in the chocolate and then placing them on wax paper to set.
  • Before the chocolate hardens, decorate the cookies with holiday sprinkles.


  • These cookies should be good for 3 to 4 days in an airtight container at room temperature. You can freeze for up to 3 months in a freezer-safe container in the freezer.
  • Nutella or another chocolate spread can be used instead of chocolate buttercream as the filling. Chocolate ganache would also be another great filling option.
  • Dark or white chocolate chips can be used to dip the cookies in or you can leave that layer off completely or just drizzle it over the top.
