Double Cruncher Cookies with Fudge Filling

Double Cruncher Cookies with Fudge FillingThese double cruncher cookies with fudge filling are not only perfect looking and perfect tasting, they are perfect for giving to friends, neighbors, and relatives, or for taking to a party.  The cookie is a delicious chewy combination of oatmeal-cornflake-coconut and the filling is like fudge, not frosting.  They are so good I had to really use self control to not eat more than two.

Double Cruncher Cookies with Fudge Filling

Yield: Makes about 3 dozen sandwich cookies

Double Cruncher Cookies with Fudge Filling


  • 1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
  • Filling:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. For the Cookies:
  3. In a large bowl of a stand mixer or with a handheld electric mixer (because of the large amount of dough I used my Bosch mixer), cream together the butter and both sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
  5. Stir in the baking soda, salt, and flour.
  6. Add the oats, cornflakes, and coconut. Stir until combined.
  7. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls (no larger or the cookie will spread and be too big) and place about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges but still slightly soft in the middle.
  9. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. For the Filling:
  11. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stovetop over low heat. Allow it to cool to just slightly warm to the touch.
  12. Beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy.
  13. Stir in the melted chocolate and mix until well combined.
  14. Sandwiching the Cookies:
  15. Match up cookies to similar sizes.
  16. Spread the frosting on the bottom side of one cookie and top with another cookie (bottom sides to frosting ~ top sides facing out.)
  17. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    Good Evening Lori, Double crunch cookies with fudge filling….. I’m in heaven. I have a really sweet tooth and I have to tell you, these biscuits would be wonderful with a cup of coffee and I love the fact that the filling is made with cream cheese. These are certainly going to be on my “to make list”….. I think maybe this weekend.
    Lori I have found you at Anyonita Nibbles and it is nice to meet you. I have enjoyed my visit and I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have a moment to spare.
    Best Wishes from England.

      Daphne, it’s nice to meet you. Please let me know how your cookies turn out. I’m popping on over to take a look at your site right now! 🙂

    These cookies look delicious! I’ve never seen corn flakes in cookie batter, but I bet they add an amazing crunch.

      I was surprised, too, about the cornflakes in this recipe. They really help the texture. Just now, though, I am remembering about a cookie recipe that I haven’t made for about 20 years that has cornflakes in it. It’s a recipe from an old family friend called dunkin platters. I’m going to have to dig it out and make them to see if I still like them. Let me know how you like these cookies if you make them.

    These sound delicious, I would need lots of self control! Thanks for sharing, I will be pinning for later.

      LOTS of self control. I had to package ours up to giveaway so I wouldn’t be tempted beyond my own self control.

    This will be on my list of cookies to make and give this Christmas… I can’t believe that will be here soon!

    • Lori October 4, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

      I know, Kay. I can’t believe it’s October ~ and Costco has had Christmas decorating stuff since August. There is just something wrong about that, don’t you think? Rushing us and thinking too soon about Christmas and not savoring fall. What other yummy things do you make for Christmas?

    How long will these cookies stay fresh for?

    • Lori October 31, 2016 at 12:30 pm #

      I’m not exactly sure how long these cookies will stay fresh. We’ve left them out for several days and they’ve been fine. They could be refrigerated or frozen for longer freshness.
