Chocolate Whoopie Pies

October 18, 2011

whoppie pies

I really can’t see why anyone would dislike whoopie pies.  They’re basically hand held pieces of cake.  These particular whoopie pies are made with a devil’s food cake mix and icing made with marshmallow cream.  Yum!

The cake tops turned out super soft and moist.  Which kinda made them harder to eat but that’s half the fun.  The messier the better I say, it usually means you’re eating something delicious if you’re willing to be covered in it!

And oh my, the icing!  It’s a sweet and sugary vanilla icing with a nice marshmallow undertone.  So good.  You’ll get a good number of nice sized whoopie pies out of this recipe.  They end up being about 3 inches across.
