Chocolate Whoopie

3 Mar


Opening note – these whoopie pies are meant to be blue…promise. They were made to celebrate the upcoming birth of the new Lewis boy. Mama Lewis loves these cakey sandwiches and we’ve consumed approximately 267,842 together in the past two years. This recipe is crazy easy, and the results are yum. I suggest making your whoopie as soon as the cookies cool. I stored mine for a night and they were almost too sticky to fill.

Chocolate Whoopie Pies
makes around 12/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

Cookies

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks butter (melted)
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I used my milk/vinegar combo)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

Filling

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk (you’re gonna think you need more, but you won’t…trust me)

Here’s what I did:

Cookies

  1. Beat sugar, butter and eggs until fully combined.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in separate bowl (excluding the baking soda).
  3. Add dry mixture to butter mix, alternating with the buttermilk.
  4. Mix in baking soda.
  5. Drop dough by spoonfuls on prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  7. Cool completely before filling.

Filling

  1. Mix together butter and sugar.
  2. Add vanilla and milk and beat until smooth.
  3. Add food coloring if you want. I use this great veggie-based color made by India Tree.
  4. Spread filling and make your whoopie.
