Buttercream Frosting Sandwiches

I had leftover pink buttercream frosting after making my Valentine Heart Sugar Cookies so I sandwiched the frosting between graham crackers and dipped the edges in Valentine’s sprinkles.  Because buttercream frosting is just too good to throw out!  These sandwiches are a quick and easy dessert that turns your leftover frosting into a new treat.

  1. LOVE THESE! My mom made these all the time when I was a child, and I haven’t thought about them in years. She’d keep them in the fridge, and I almost always preferred these to whatever the frosting was actually for. Thanks so much for sharing. And, you are right, buttercream frosting is too good to throw out. No crimes against frosting!

    Hey, how did you know I have a small bowl of leftover chocolate buttercream in the fridge?! You know what – I’ve got some square-shaped chocolate cookies and I’ll make sandwiches with them! Thank you a lot for the brilliant idea!

    We always do this with leftover frosting! It’s almost better than whatever cookies or cake the frosting was originally intended for. I like how you added the sprinkles! Makes them extra special.
