Trust me when I say, one cookie will feed a small family.
Proceed with caution as you scroll through the images. You may run the risk of slipping into a sugar coma before you ever get to the how-to for assembling and packaging at the bottom of this post...
MATERIALS NEEDED (makes 6 Monster Cookies)
12 Whole Large Chocolate Chip Cookies (homemade or store-bought)
2-3 Chocolate Chip Cookies crumbled for topping
Buttercream Frosting or other frosting of choice for filling. I used the Buttercream recipe from Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook but you can use store-bought - amount depends on your preferences and size of your cookies.
1 - 12oz. bag Chocolate Chips (or chocolate) for melting and dipping
Cookie Sheet (for transporting cookies to and from freezer - make sure it'll fit your freezer).
Optional: (for creating the "green monster face" cookies)
Green Gel Food Coloring
Candy Google Eyes
CREATE YOUR SANDWICH COOKIES
Cover cookie sheet with wax paper and arrange 6 cookies bottom-side-up.
Spoon a good amount of buttercream frosting on each of the 6 cookies so that you'll be able to clearly see it in the center after top cookie has been added and cookies are sandwiched together. Avoid adding too much to prevent frosting from oozing off the sides.
Top each of the 6 buttercreamed cookies with one of the remaining 6 cookies.
Place in freezer for 10-30 minutes.
Using a stove top or microwave follow the package instructions for melting your chocolate while the cookies are in the freezer.
Once chocolate is melted remove cookies from freezer and dip one side into melted chocolate.
Place chocolate-dipped cookies on wax paper and top with cookie crumbles.
Cool until set.(approx. 30 minutes)
Instructions for Packaging
Cut a piece of wax paper to wrap and protect each cookie. as well as to prevent the favor bag from soiling.
If needed, secure with tape.
Wrap with Divine Twine for a nice finish.
Slip wrapped cookie into favor bag.
Fold the favor bag over to close and wrap with a cute green ribbon.

I loved using the TKS Diagonal Striped Black Large Favor Bags to package up these cookies-on-steroids! These will be perfect treats for my family's annual "Operation Phantom Pumpkin" (Boo-ing). These are also wonderful treats to take into the office, up to the school or to that Halloween party you are either planning or just planning to attend.
Although these cookies are incredibly appropriate for this sugary season - if you opt not to use the candy google eyes you've actually got a treat for any celebration or season!
