These whoopie pies are melt-in-your-mouth decadent, unlike any other whoopie pie in the world! Although, I can’t remember if I have ever had one before these so who am I to make these preposterous claims. They were incredible though. You’ll just have to try them yourself!
These weren’t fluffy whoopie pie’s like I expected them to be based on photo’s I’ve seen, maybe I made a mistake? BUT they still turned out so good! So good. They slightly resembled a gourmet version of a cookie ice cream sandwich, you know, the one’s from baseball games and theme parks? I love those.
Without further adieu, I bring you the Chocolate Peppermint Whoopie Pie:
This makes 48 small cookies for 24 whoopie pies
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon of instant espresso
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and both sugars. Beat in egg, sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips. Refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets (Mine weren’t very round and they came out a bit more rustic looking than a traditional whoopie pie). Bake for 12 minutes.
Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of frosting on the flat half of one cookie, then top with another cookie. Repeat.
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup butter at room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of Peppermint Bark (Costco or TJ’s)
In a stainless steel saucepan cook the milk and marshmallows over low heat and stir frequently until it’s all melted. This took a solid 30-40 minutes. Set aside to cool thoroughly.
Use a mixer to cream the butter until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Slowly drizzle in the marshmallow mixture and the vanilla extract while the mixer is still going and whip until creamy.
Little Yellow Note: Don’t eat these too late at night, for some reason they keep you wide-eyed awake playing Just Dance on the Wii till midnight. Enjoy!
