In our home it’s officially cookie season, so let’s get back to baking. Let me tell you about these gluten-free mocha chocolate chunk sandwich cookies. They are quite different from your basic cookies because they are made with a mocha chocolate chunk shortbread base and are stuck together with gooey caramel filling. Just thinking about them makes me want to eat an entire batch. 

All you cookie lovers should try this mocha chocolate chunk sandwich cookie you will LOVE IT!! This amazing cookie sandwich is like a dessert, it is definitely not just a cookie. I keep these heavenly sweets chilled in the refrigerator, but that is my preference, you may like them at room temperature all depends what you like. Either way, they are sooo good!!

  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour blend
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum (omit if your blend already contains it)
  • 2 Tbsp. Pure cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar, I used coconut sugar
  • 2 oz. gluten-free baking chocolate chopped into small pieces or Mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum if using, cocoa and espresso powder. Set aside
  • In a large bowl using an electric mixer mix butter with sugar until creamy. Add dry ingredients and chocolate chunks and mix until the dough comes together. It looks crumbly but it will come together
  • Form the dough into a large disk and place it on a large sheet of parchment paper. Cover with another sheet and roll the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter cut into round shapes about 1 3/4-inch in diameter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat about 1-inch apart. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes or refrigerate for 20 minutes. DO NOT SKIP THIS PART
  • Preheat oven to 325 F and bake for 15 minutes, they are done when the tops are not shimmering. Cool completely on the baking sheet
  • While the cookies are baking prepare the caramel filling; pour the condensed milk into a non-stick saucepan. Simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring often until the sauce turns a light shade of caramel. Stir in vanilla and remove from the heat to cool. If you find the caramel too thick to spread on the cookies, just warm it up a little
  • Once the cookies are cool, spread the bottom half of the cookies with the caramel add the top cookie and you are done! I refrigerate mine right after to firm up the caramel filling
