These chocolate whoopie pies are so yummy. I’m making them for Valentine’s Day but honestly, they’re a delicious dessert any time of the year.
My mom used to make them when I was a kid and I remember feeling like it was a big ordeal to bake and make the filling. I’m sure it was because I was impatient for them to be done so I could eat them!
I have a little more patience now and these sandwich cookies are so much easier to make than I remember.
Below is a photo of the ingredients you’ll need to make the cakelike chocolate layers. The ingredients and instructions to make the filling are below.
I did change something in this old family recipe and that was the filling. My mom used shortening to make her filling. I’m not sure they even sell that anymore but I remember it not having any taste!
Taste is important and my adult tastebuds demand better so I’ve opted for a filling made with marshmallow creme. If you have trouble finding marshmallow creme, try the baking aisle. It should be near the bags of marshmallows and sugar.
This filling is perfect for whoopie pies because it has the right amount of sweetness and it’s very light and fluffy. I go into all the details below, so gather up your ingredients and let’s make a batch of delicious Chocolate Whoopie Pies.
