Semi-homemade peanut butter & chocolate “sliders”

Sometimes we all need something sweet in a pinch.

For those times, I always keep baking mixes and cans of frosting on hand.

Yeah, yeah. It’s “cheating” if you truly like to bake, like myself. But it’s fast and easy – and still satisfies an immediate sweet tooth. Don’t hate.

My favorite types of cookies are all sandwich cookies – the lace cookies you find at bakeries, cookies with jam in between, those E.L. Fudge cookies that look like little elves, Oreo’s, etc.  So I decided to make my own sandwich cookies, using already-made ingredients. Once they were done, my husband ate one and commented on how it looked like “a tiny dessert hamburger” – hence these sliders were born.

 

SEMI-HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE “SLIDERS”

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 package (17.5 oz.) of peanut butter cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker’s)

3 Tbsp. of vegetable oil

2 Tbsp. of water

1 large egg

1 can of chocolate frosting (I used Betty Crocker’s Rich & Creamy Dark Chocolate frosting)

 

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the cookie mix, oil, egg, and water. Form a soft dough.
  2. Roll into 36 equally sized balls, and place around 2″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to create criss-cross patterns on the cookies.

3. Bake according to directions on package (8-10 minutes) and remove from pan to let cool.

4. Evenly spread the flat side of a cookie with the chocolate frosting, topping with another cookie. Repeat until you have 18 cookie sandwiches.

these really do look like tiny hamburgers
