I really cannot believe November is coming to an end. It seems as if the fall season is passing by all too quickly and soon it will be winter. While I am decorated for Christmas, I really want the time to just slow down a bit so I can catch my breath and enjoy the season. Since the holiday season is all about yummy baked goods I wanted to share this shortcut recipe for Chocolate Buttercream Cookies Sandwiches for Santa.
Have you ever left out cookies for Santa at your home? I know my kids will not go to bed on Christmas Eve unless there are some kind of cookies in a bowl with a glass of milk like DairyPure. They even put it in a super cute milk bottle with a candy cane straw and note to him. It is really cute and we always leave some extra cookies aside from our Christmas Eve festivities for dear old Santa.
This year, we will be making these Shortcut Chocolate Buttercream Cookie Sandwiches. I love my homemade Chocolate Buttercream recipe so I figured it would go great sandwiched between two chocolate cookies. This recipe is a hack because you can use pre-made cookies and make a semi-homemade treat with a extra candy and frosting.
I attempted to make snowflakes on these cookie, but they could also pass as stars, or maybe even blobs. Regardless, they taste yummy and are perfect with some DairyPure whole milk. We love DairyPure in this house because it is the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise. DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones*, is tested for antibiotics, is continually quality tested to ensure purity, only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped from your trusted dairy.
DairyPure is available in the dairy case at grocery stores nationwide in whole, 2% reduced fat, 1% low fat and skim/fat free milks. We use whole milk in this household so that is what Santa will be enjoying on Christmas Eve with our Shortcut Chocolate Buttercream Cookie Sandwiches.
- Pre-made chocolate cookies *we used cookies from Dancing Deer Baking Co.
- White Chocolate Candy Melts
- Holiday Sprinkles
- 3 cups of sifted confectioner’s sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3 tablespoons Dairy Pure Whole Milk
- 2 Sticks on unsalted room temperature butter (allow it to reach this temperature on its own)
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
Melt your candy and create your snowflake or star design on your top cookies. Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles, and set aside.
For frosting, add your room temperature butter to your mixer. Mix for 2 minutes until butter is soft, and whipped. Add your salt, cocoa, and slowly add your sugar. If you add it too fast your powder will blow everywhere. Slowly add your Dairy Pure Whole Milk into the mixture. Blend well until all ingredients are mixed for 2 minutes. Add your frosting to a piping bag and pipe in-between each sandwich cookie. Close cookies to form and sandwich, and enjoy!
