Chocolate Whoopie Pies
Are you ready for soft chocolate-cake cookies with a creamy filling made with marshmallow fluff and cream cheese? Mmmmmmm……
Well, let’s go!Printer Friendly
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 cup marshmallow cream
Yield: 24 cookies
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, blend together the brown sugar and butter.
Mix in the eggs
Then alternately add the buttermilk
and flour mixture
mixing until just combined.
Drop level tablespoons of batter onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake 6 – 8 minutes or until the tops are set and spring back when lightly pressed. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack or paper towel and let cool completely.
When the cookies are cool, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and marshmallow cream
until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Spread 1 tablespoon of filling onto half of the cookies,
and then sandwich with the remaining cookies.
Serve immediately or refrigerate, in a single layer, in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
These are very rich and literally melt-in-your mouth.
Why are you still sitting here? Get to the kitchen and get baking!Printer Friendly
~Adapted from a recipe in Woman’s Day.
I think rather than baking tonight, I’d like to stop by your kitchen for a sample! 🙂 They look delicious!
C’mon down. Although – the wind has been blowing out of the west all day at about 45 mph and you’ll be flying into the wind, so it may take you a while. Not to worry though, I made plenty.
I’m sitting here because I just pulled homemade shortcakes from the oven. Will be having strawberry shortcake a bit later. Can’t wait. The whoopie pies do look good.
I make these from a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. Great.
Oh no, I have to eat one or more of these beauties ASAP! I can almost smell these babies from here! I am off to the store, thanks for the recipe!
