  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  6. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the filling by heating the heavy cream in a small saucepan until it begins to steam.
  10. Place the chopped semisweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
  11. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
  12. Whisk the chocolate and cream until smooth and combined. Allow the mixture to cool for 15 minutes.
  13. Once the cookies and filling are cooled, spoon a dollop of filling onto the bottom side of one cookie.
  14. Place another cookie on top of the filling to create a sandwich.
  15. Repeat with the remaining cookies and filling.
  16. Store the Faux-reos in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  17. Serve and enjoy!
