That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Whoopie Pies…Version 2

Home » 300+ Best Cookies Recipes » Whoopie Pies…Version 2
I’ve been making whoopie pies ever since I saw them featured on the Martha Stewart Show a few years back. That version requires muffin top pans, produces moist and cake-like pies which are filled with a delightfully decadent marshmallow cream based icing. When I won a blog give away on Wendy’s Blog, The Weekend Gourmet, I was thrilled to receive a chocolate cookbook and two bars of chocolate from Green and Black’s. There are numerous recipes I want to try, but first up were their whoopee pies.


These don’t need any special equipment, are more the consistency of cookies and are smaller as my teenager immediately pointed out. They were a snap to make, and tasted better the second day. The consensus was that these weren’t quite as good as the Martha recipe, but they still disappeared quickly! I bet if I used the other filling, they would have received even more exuberant praise. Thanks so much, Wendy…next up from this cookbook will be marbled mousse.
